“Worst Service Ever”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed December 21, 2010

I waited for an hour for a pathetic little waffle to arrive. I ordered it with cream, it was served with Ice Cream; I was told they had no cream yet they are within walking distance from a Woolworths. 3 of my colleagues ordered Bobotie, after 30 minutes they were told there were only 2 portions of the ‘home-made’ bobotie left. The food portions arrived smaller than small… NEVER visit Greenfields in Meyerspark, Pretoria. You will regret it?

“Have you ever been told your custom is not needed by a restaurant?”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed November 7, 2009

Greenfields is a chain of franchises. Standard coffee shop style. The attraction being free wifi with your breakfast. All in all a good casual place to go.

The franchise at Watermeyer Park in Pretoria is my closest one where I used to visit for Breakfast on the week end. Never again. After being turned away on evening because they were closing, (This in itself was not a big problem for me, your closing I get it) the owner then loudly complained to the shop next door custom was bad. I pointed out I was a customer and was told my custom was not needed, behind my back in a loud voice. I was so stunned I confronted him to confirm what he had said. No mistake there, it was re-confirmed to my face.

I have had slow service, rude waiters, bad food but never have been told that my custom is not needed, I guess there is a first time for everything...............
