“Great for that lite bite!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 26, 2012 via mobile

This is a very busy little cafe within the Waitrose store at Carkeel. It is great for that quick bite to eat, not the cheapest around as you would expect but acceptable when needs must. The food I had on my visit consisted of pizza, panini, tea and coffee, all of which for a family of four was lovely and tasty. Excellent stuff really.

“Tasty food in a convenient location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 17, 2012

A regular venue for lunch, as my office is just around the corner. Good, tasty food as would be expected from Waitrose. Counter service can be a little slow at times, depending on the staff members manning the counter, but once ordered, any cooked food is delivered to your table very quickly. A little high on price, but if that is a problem you shouldn't be in Waitrose in the first place! Sometimes not enough staff to clear the tables regularly, which can be a little frustrating when searching for a table - management take note! A window seat overlooking the car park can be most entertaining, watching some of the visitors trying to manoeuvre their vehicles. When entering or leaving the car park, do not trust the one-way system, the locals don't use or understand it. Overall good value for what you get.

“Alright but a bit slow”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 16, 2012

It's fine for a cuppa and catch up, service at the counter is very slow. Food and drink is fine.
