This cafe is independently run and the food was typical cafe fare... paninis, jacket potatoes, quiches, sandwiches and cakes, all quite tasty and reasonable value. Plenty of staff but the sheer activity and ergonomics of the food preparation and wash-up area looked awkward and there were lots of opportunities for staff collisions. In full view from my table, I saw dirty crockery piling up on the side and a panel missing off the front of the dishwasher. The layout of tables was rather regimented and I felt like I was eating in a thoroughfare; it wasn't a relaxing experience. I'm not certain food and clothing go together - I imagine the clothing could become infused with food smells. I perceived it either as a desperate attempt to diversify or an unwillingness to relinquish one type of business for another. I didn't really take to it and I don't think I'll be going back.
