“Hit or miss”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed January 30, 2014

I have dined here a lot over a period of time until I eventually stopped going. There are few times when both the customer service and the food are good but mostly u get one or neither. The waitresses frequently got our order wrong, forgot to bring cutlery, left you unattended for prolonged periods of time. Sometimes the speciality desserts are too dry or just leaves much to be desired. The ambience is nice for a business meeting, always quiet despite being busy and the only such place in San Fernando...overall an ok place to go

Thank you for your constructive review. We do apologize for the poor service that you stated you received in the past. Finding dedicated conscientious wait staff is often the greatest challenge restaurant/cafe owners & managers have. We would be very happy to have you dine with us again and if you are not satisfied with your service or food, rest assured that this is still a family owned and run cafe, so you can see a manager or owner immediately and your issues will be sorted out promptly. We hope you will join us again soon.

“Love their food and desserts”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 7, 2013

I love their food but maaaan they are pricey. $50TT for a veggie burger? Really?

Their desserts are just amazing! I make it a point to go back whenever I am home.

“Bubbling”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 3, 2013 via mobile

Great to see a place always busy when I visit. Food is slightly limited but always tasty and arrives promptly.

“Highly recommended”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 28, 2012

This place seems to be unique in South Trinidad. Adjacent to the bakery is a small cafe area, with a varied and pretty tasty menu, priced reasonably (most places locally are quite overpriced). The staff are all friendly and helpful, it's a nice place to sit and chat, and they usually have some pretty tasty desserts! The only negatives I can think of are that the air conditioning can be a bit too cold (the first time I went both my friend and I were very grateful to get outside into the warm!) and that one can't really sit outside - at least not without being nose to nose with a fleet of parked cars.

Thank you for taking time out to review our cafe. Much has changed over the past two years....our interior has had a total over haul which we are receiving rave reviews for. We are always happy to seat people away from the direct flow of the air conditioning if requested...redirecting the air flow is something we have been looking at in this new design/layout. I hope you have visited us since your last review and your experience was as positive. Thank you!
