We asked for 3 coffees and 3 sweets. The milk jugs they brought were dirty both outside and inside. The inside of the jugs seemed that they had never been washed. We mentioned it to the waitress but she just ignored us without even apologising. Avoid the place if you don't want to visit the local hospital.

This is an interesting place. It is very café/ homely place with not much atmosphere. But the selection of teas is enormous and a very knowledgeable tea sommelier. Only place that I have found a selection of Chinese Pu-erh teas in leaf! Enjoy the tea.

My husband and I stumbled across L'Acanthe today and we were beyond impressed. The lady who greeted us (the boss I reckon!) was kindly,smiling, & as I remarked, a real pro. We were greeted on arrival, never left wasting, and had copious au revoirs as we left-I noticed every customer got the same treatment. As for the food- hand on... More
