“Great Staff and Character Here”
Reviewed March 7, 2014 via mobile

This place is really relaxing and the staff are really helpful. I have visited four or five times between November and February and really enjoyed all experiences. Coffee was lovely and the baked goods are to die for, especially the caramel sqaures. I have seen other reviews about dirty dishes on tables but this issue has obviously been resolved as the place looks really clean and ambiently lit which gives nice character. Upstairs has a great area with larger tables, small tables and plenty of power points for plugging in laptops etc. The perfect place to have a little informal business meeting or even for a catch up with friends. The girl who served me on most occasions is called Jenny and her customer service is second to none! She made the experience great by making amazing coffee and service with a smile.

“Ground Coffee shop Cookstown”
Reviewed August 28, 2013

This coffee shop has excellent variety of coffees, friendly staff, play area for children and is very child-friendly. However I have noticed that they seem to be under-staffed, resulting in tables not cleared, dirty floors, newspapers day(s) old, and general untidy appearance. Otherwise a lovely place to relax with friends with a nice coffee. Just tidy up!

“Oh dear...worse than average...”
Reviewed May 28, 2013 via mobile

This place is poorly lit. The signs don't tell you the prices of the food (only the coffee etc.) and then the server looks at you as if you're an imbecile for asking the relative prices of wraps/panini etc. The food is decidedly average. The wholemeal bread is too crumbly to make sandwiches with and the fillings are fairly bland. The lemon drizzle cake is quite nice and the coffee is ok, but for the price ok is not good enough. The loos are appalling (no lock on the door, very unhygenically maintained) and I worry why the place is so dimly lit...? There are "friendly" messages on the wall, written in crayon like script. They just look amateurish and seem to be on grease proof paper. Oh dear. Misbranding if ever I saw it.
Not recommended.

“its a coffee shop”
Reviewed May 10, 2013

its a standard coffee shop, excellent muffins, but like all coffee and buns its very expensive, theres something about all the ground coffee shops they never look very clean, tables are always left too long to be cleared, and the floors are often untidy, im prepared to overlook this at times, for the muffins, much better than starbucks though
