“Early Days- I'd wait a few more months”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 14, 2013 via mobile

We had been to the previous cafe and were looking forward to trying the new version. Great atmosphere and the place was packed at 1130; however we managed to get a table straight away.

When it came to order lunch we were told we had to wait until the breakfast menu had finished (12 midday) however the waitress who took our order was accomodating and went and asked the chef if there were any options; 1150 was the response. Meals were okay and coffee was good.

However the young waitress with the nose-ring needs to loose the attitude. ..tossing the cutlery on the table,not asking if we want water and reaching over my wife's meal as she delivered a coffee. This attitude was off putting. I suspect she is related to the chef so job security is resulting in poor customer service.
