“Food is good, service needs some work”
Reviewed April 8, 2013

The food is good for a quick lunch, hot drink etc... The hot sandwiches are nice, the food seems fresh.

There are a few seats inside and there always seems to be space, but it is really busy in the service/take away section. There are also a couple of seats outside.

It's the service that isn't always great, when its busy the staff are obviously more stressed and you know it, there always seems to be something added to the price which is fine but its not always made clear. The attitude is just quite appalling, no thank you or please, no smiles. I like the food but might just have to stop going if the service doesn't improve.

“Disgraceful”
Reviewed November 10, 2011

Customer service is appaling. Was overcharged by £2.00 and when I questioned this, was told I clearly could not afford their food and questioned why I was asking for a few pence back! This was in front of all the staff and customers waiting. The way I was treated was truly unbelievable, the conversation ended with the woman telling me I was barred and not welcome in the cafe again!
Make of that what you will .......Bizarre

“Great for breakfast and lunch, but expect a queue”
Reviewed October 14, 2011

The sandwiches here are excellent, and the service is great. Their bacon sandwiches for breakfast were the perfect once-a-month naughty treat. Sometimes the queue can be long, but this is good quality food at a good price.

“Great range of sandwich fillings”
Reviewed June 5, 2011

This cafe has been steadily improving over the last few years and is a great place to grab a hot sandwich or a breakfast. While vegetarians are well catered for on the menu, it should be noted that everything appears to be cooked on the same griddle, be it meat or not. They also struggle with some other specialist diets, such as vegan or gluten free and don't off simple alternatives like decaf coffee.

That said, the service is almost always brilliant, though a little slow at peak times and the value for portion/quality simply can't be beaten locally. TripAdvisor calls this a restaurant, but don't take that to heart. This is a proper cafe. If you want the sort of establishment that attracts everyone from junior doctrs to workmen, all having a slap up value an tasy breakfast in common, this is your place. NB look out for the various discounts for students and univsersity staff
