Actually wasn't too bad. It can be hit and miss, but brunch today was fine. Prompt service and food didn't take too long. The lentil soup was hot and had flavour, the side salad fresh and the sandwich edible. There are better places in town, but on this occasion I'd say it has improved on my last visit some years...

Service was fine, although short of smiles. Café was clean and comfortable, but noisy. Fish (unknown variety) was overcooked and tasteless. Chips were good. Apple pie was very good.

It was a burnt baguette with lots of melted cheese on top and under cooked chips on the side. Staff members had... More

The tables look and feel sticky. We had the breakfast. It was a bit too greasy for me. Back in the day this place was amazing. It's gone downhill.

We had enjoyed the sister restaurant in Dundee so we tried here and had much the same experience!The pancakes were large portions and tasty but unlike the sweet pannenkoeken we had had on our Dutch holiday.The cappuccinos were delicious.The staff were friendly and served us promptly.The restaurant was clean.

I went with my friends from ages 8-16 and the staff were so unpolite and were so unwelcoming. They were quite angry and the waitress was wearing a hoodie and slammed the cutlery down and forgot to give me a fork. The cola was half filled and I asked for a fork but they gave me another spoon then after... More
