“Food OK but the service is bad!”
Reviewed October 17, 2012 via mobile

i was very hungry this morning, and i saw this good looking atmosphere restaurant. i gor tricked by the looks. the waiter told me to park in a residence area and i got fined for that! When i told them i got the ticket, they said they don't know, they park here everyday. Highly not recommended. This show that their word are not reliable. very dissapoonted

Dear Peakolo,

I surprised that you feel you needed to put up a review on TA regarding our service based on the fact that you failed to pay attention to the parking restrictions on the street.

Any member of staff currently working there has been employed by the cafe for well over a year and know full well how vigilant parking attendants are in the area and, as a general rule, do not recommend any nearby areas for parking. But the fact should remain that it is not their responsibility to park your car in the correct bay and is yours and yours alone.

It is never nice to get a ticket and I am sure that your frustration made your write this review, but please know that we feel seriously aggrieved as we work very, very hard at what we do and try to keep our TA rating as high as possible.

I hope that you come and visit us again soon.

Kind regards,

Chris

“Fabulous Breakfast”
Reviewed September 9, 2012

Delightful and surprisingly rustic/modern cafe. Food delicious, best ingredients used, does not look anything special from the outside but you are pleasantly surprised when you walk through the doors, the open stonework walls, beautiful old fireplace, tasteful decor, a pleasant and enjoyable experience indeed!

“Excellent breakfast, bottomless cup of coffee”
Reviewed September 3, 2012

Breakfast ion this cafe was an excellent experience. Eggs Benedict served with plenty of hollandaise sauce, and extremely tasty. Good coffee with refills. Popular, small cafe, well worth a visit.
