“Terrible Coffee”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed June 2, 2014

Decided to get our coffee from here, instead of the French bakery next door. Service was rubbish, waited around for long enough and then my long black was awful! Not even drinkable. Wouldn't recommend it.

“Bad Service”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed May 30, 2014

Me and a friend went here for a coffee and eggs benedict, the coffee was okay and the food was very nice, as for the service..... there was no service, no smile, not a word spoken really no manners when i got my card back after paying for my meal a said an emphasized THANKYOU and the lady just looked at me as if i was crazy! When we were sitting at the table we could hear the waitresses converstaions of " I dont need to work ill get more money on the F***en benefit" etc this is appauling! nice cafe with nice food but i think you need some workers that actually care for what they do and maybe have some hospitality experience.

“What customer service? ”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed March 29, 2014

Shopping at The Outdoorsman we decided to venture through to The Office Cafe for a slice and coffee.

The person who served us came across grumpy and uninterested - never a good start.

When our order arrived at the table, the same person served us. She did not speak one word.

In my opinion this is a very poor experience.

Highlight was the gingerslice.

“Great late night meal”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 13, 2014

One of the few restaurants open the evening we were there, The Office supplied us with a great meal, in a relaxed setting, at very reasonable rates!
