“Don't drink the coffee!!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed January 5, 2012

When you return an undrinkable coffee and the staff agree there's something very wring! When they continue by admitting that the beans aren't tasty but they're using them anyway, I was speechless. But when they went on to offer another cup (using these coffee beans) at full strength I gave up trying to rationalize with them...

“More of a canteen than a cafe”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 3, 2012

Great if you just want to pick up a premade sandwich and go, this place isn't really what you'd expect from a regular cafe.

“homely hot drink and awesome view!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 6, 2011

the prices of the food and hot drinks are ok, and what to expect for the tourist destination.
nice selection of sandwiches, hot and cold food, sweets and fresh fruit.
the view is the one that makes it, I had a very nice chai late!

“Don't go here for anything cooked!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed December 19, 2010

Had bacon and eggs here. I don't know how you stuff up bacon and eggs but they had a real crack at it. The eggs were thin and rubbery, the bacon had an odd taste about it and the sausage was deep deep deep fried!
We also had coffee, which tasted like they had used the same grindings for week.
