“amazing cakes”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 22, 2013

Wow we were tempted by the wonderful window display of amazing looking cakes.
Lots of table space inside.go to the counters first to have a look at the vast choice of cakes! Staff behind counter could be a bit less abrupt but all in all service was good. Make sure you don't go if you are on a diet!

“Best cream Tea in Stratford”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 19, 2013

For what it's worth the Cream Tea and Scones they serve are the best we've had and the place is so busy because they're good. You're spoilt for choice and considering you don't go to Stratford every day, for a city centre cafe it's not even that expensive. Hope to find it there every time we are in Stratford.

“Very disappointed!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 17, 2013

After being tempted in by the lovly cakes in the window, we were extremely disappointed by the rude and unhelpful staff! Wrong cakes given and asked to pay more when asked to exchange, followed by sandwich being served dripping in butter when I asked for a plain beef sandwich no mayo or butter. This place has a lovely feel and look to it but the service is shocking. The old grumpy lord of the manor needs a few lessons in customer service!

“Rude and dismissive”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 16, 2013

We requested gluten free food , only to be told almost gleefully " you couldn't have chosen a worse place top come for that!"
Do you do salads?
" Don't do salads"
In fact they do excellent baguettes with salad and all they needed to do was show 5% imagination and provided a baguette minus the bread and added about 10 p worth of additional salad!
But the Basil Fawty of Stratford did no think of it and Manuel clearly had the day off!

“Nice food but overpriced”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 15, 2013 via mobile

nice cakes and sandwhiches but too expensive. nice man behind counter but waiter was a bit abrupt. and a bit annoying that the waiters constantly looking round restaurant trying to find table numbers to bring your food. was extremely busy and tables are a bit too cramped together. Nice for a one off treat.Looks a bit dingy from outside!
