“Very yummy”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 16, 2013

Came here for the first time last night after hearing so many friends talk about it.... Going on a Friday night was a terrible idea. It's absolutely jam packed with students, really rude, noisy students. Being mid 20's I felt very out of place and so did the middle aged people I saw there too. I don't blame them for catering for the young people, as its a student area and they're there to make money. But people who aren't students probably feel uncomfortable amongst the RnB music, and I certainly did - as it was 10pm and the doors were wide open to allow surges of teens in. It was freezing cold inside, and having finally managed to get a table (which was cleaned twice, which was good) we waited quite a while for our waffles. They didn't disappoint, they were huge and smothered in chocolate and ice cream. My only qualm was that it was really really sickly, and I couldn't finish mine. I also think they need to be more imaginative with their menu. Echo item is a mixture of several of a small range of ingredients. All contain either banana or strawberry, chocolate or maple syrup, whipped cream or ice cream. For a place that has a vast array of homemade ice cream flavours, their menu is quite limited.
They could do with expanding, and getting more places to sit down...and definitely not keep the doors wide open on a cold night. Because its so popular you can't go here for a nice evening.. It's very much aimed at the students.

“Fantastic place small but very nice”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 15, 2013

Went there on Wednesday with the wife. She loved it to bits. I thought was a bargain as the quantity was a lot for the money. The restaurant is quite small but the seating by the couch is very cosy. Ideal for couples.
