“Understaffed, terrible service”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed December 5, 2013

This review is based on multiple bad service experience at this coffee shop. Everything from menus arriving, to drinks, to food, to condiments take forever to arrive. Ketchup was off and coffee is prepared by badly trained barristers.

“Open the book and relax”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 3, 2013

I enjoy stopping here after buying some books in Exclusive and spoiling myself with a slice of 1 of their decadent cakes and a good cup of coffee. The service needs a little bit of polishing up though,

“Good food”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 25, 2013

After some shopping at the Liberty Mall we stopped for a light meal. The food was great but the waitress was not to fast or sharp. When asked about a particular cake, which was nice, she had no idea or inclination to explain what it was.

“Nice place, needs attention”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 26, 2013

For a while now the service has been average with the waiters unattentive. Even getting amenu is sometimes an achievement. The menu is decent, the food is good, the prces competitive
