Had breakfast here. Friendly staff and was able to get a table within reasonable time. Coffee was okay. Meals were delayed a bit. I had a big breakfast and it was done well. Nothing special. Just a run of the mill cafe.

This is my second visit and once again I have been disappointed by the service!! We waited over 45mins for our burgers whilst the other people on our table had to wait even longer for their Club sandwiches. Hence we were unable to eat all together. When expressing our disappointment to the waiter he simply dismissed our comments and walked... More
