On first arrival the cafe seemed pleasant, two full tables of people having lunch, the girl behind the counter was more than friendly. After interrupting a conversation between who I assume is the owner I managed to get served, although he did apologise for this.
We ordered two paninis, to which we were told they had run out of pesto and offered alternatives. Once we had paid, £4 each per panini which seems a bit pricey to begin with.. We were told there was no ciabatta bread and offered a bread cake or sliced bread to which we chose sliced.
We then received the two 'paninis' 5 minutes later and left.
It was when we arrived home that we became disappointed with our visit..
The chicken panini was toasted but not enough for the cheese to of melted, and the tuna one was only to be described as a sandwich. Not toasted or even slightly warm.
We then had to toast these ourselves at home, not worthy of the £4 we spent at all.
Do not get me wrong, all the girls we saw seemed well presented and really lovely, but when you pay £8 for a panini you expect a bit more than a dollop of tuna between two slides of cheap brown bread. Saying that, we did eat them, but left half each as the filling and bread wasn't great, there was gristle in the chicken.
After reading previous reviews on here I am genuinely shocked at the replies the owner has given, no disregard for customers or creating brand loyalty at all.
Will not be returning any time soon, and from the looks of things I'm expecting a bitter reply from said owner who was not present when my food was ready so can't really comment.
I'd of been better throwing £8 down the drain.
