What a shame. Lovely building but payed more than other more popular cafés for coffee to be put in plastic cups. After refusing to pay the waitress poured them into proper cups explaining that there was a show on - there were only 3 other customers in and the staff were standing around. Not pleasant, slow and took there time to acknowledge me in the first place.
Is the cafe run by the winter gardens or the same useless people at the restaurant opposite. Love this theatre but will be going to another theatre for pre drinks

Would recommend a visit to the winter gardens but definitely not Mazzei cafe. Staff are awful. No urgency. Waited for 2 pots of tea for 45 minutes before walking out after complaining to the manager. It was not busy, there were plenty of staff very slowly taking orders, had to queue for 15 minutes to give order. Appalling.

Right inside the newly refurbished Winter Gardens - go see them and try and get on a tour! Visited this place four times - first day at weekend it was waitress service - had green tea - rest of the week it wasn't and they didn't have green tea! Great decor and very tranquil. I don't personally think they should leave milk on the tables (sugar cubes, well fair enough). Place needs a piano :) Still its a great loacation, drinks are made to oder - one day we ordered by waitress, another at the counter and they borught them over, another at the counter and we waited for them to give us a tray. Manager was experimenting they said. I wonder what the annswer is? There is a stunning spanish bar next door, looks like a galleon.. but I digress. This place is pretty good.

Perhaps we caught them on an off-day.Perhaps they were short-staffed.You get your tea served in a plastic cup-you get soup served in a plastic cup.The toasties were truly awful.My experience was a really poor experience.
