We went here as it was recommended by our hotel as well as the numerous road signs we passed on our way into Swansea. We'd read some bad reviews online, but thought'd we'd give it a chance; wish we'd stayed away. The view on arrival was great, but it was downhill from there, both literally and metaphorically. The coffee was too hot and tasted bad, and at $5 a mug I was expecting more. Breakfast all up was about $40, not too bad for the 2 of us, but not appropriate for what we got.
Following breakfast I thought I'd try to find a present for my mother in the shop. I chose a jam and went to pay for it. The lady behind the counter was having a lengthy conversation with the couple in front of me, so I patiently waited, reading the newspaper clippings that were framed and hung on the wall like badges of honour. When it came my turn to pay, the service lady turned around and started making coffees. So I waited again. Meanwhile she finished the coffees she was fumbling through, delivered them to the table, and came back. When she came back she walked straight past me, as I was smiling to attract her attention, and into the kitchen. It was as if I was invisible to her, like Bruce Willis in the movie the Sixth Sense. I just wanted to give her the money and be on my way!
Eventually another lady came into the store with an apron on, and served me. Hopefully mum enjoys the $10 jar of jam, because the pathetic service we had nearly spoilt our trip to Tasmania.
