Went to the local deli on Saturday about one'ish to get some bread and bagels. Once again they had nothing there! If I was willing to wait for 10 minutes I could have had some bagels that were being cooked. So why did the staff not start cooking them earlier? I find the majority of the staff there extremely unfriendly,... More

Is ok in here if you don't mind clearing your own table whilst the staff chat away behind the counter, and do you a whole favour by wiping the table down, only after being asked. The food is actually ok, just the service leaves a lot to be desired.

Loughton High Street is awash with eateries and coffee shops, so anything new has to be good in order to survive, and this is certainly good. A great selection of food, well prepared, well displayed and reasonably priced. This is reflected in the number of customers, many of whom no doubt return again and again. Their takeaway menu is great... More

The food is good, although the coffee wasn't great. I've read several other comments about the staff smiling, and I have to admit, I have never seen them smile and the welcome is very cold as well. Perhaps a little backgreound music would enlighten their mode, but something isn;t right behind the scenes, the staff are always so miserable.

The food here is generally decent ( all the salads are very good and the potato latkas, bagels are nice). The coffee is great. However, the staff are some of the most unfriendly you could find in a local cafe/shop. The people on trip advisor who have said the staff there are always smiling are either a) going to the...
