Seen this place get built a while back and wondered if it was any good, but as its not far from home we never get to stop in, but having a guest who wanted to take us for coffee and cake we thought, why not?!
So, stopped in here for coffee and cake at 3pm on a sunday and the place was busy with a queue of people ordereing / waiting for coffee. Getting a table was hard work as while there were a few they were dirty with old plates and cups. Eventually I caught the eye of a guy delievering food and asked him to clean a table for us, which he did, but i didnt see any of the others get cleaned while we were there and doubted he would have done ours if we hadnt asked, he was too busy.
Ordering was slow, food delivery was even slower. C'mon guys, have you never seen the CBD guys cranking out coffee in the moring like a well oiled machine? Im guessing not... I didnt expect it to be instant, but it was around 30mins for 3 coffees and a muffin!
Anyway, while we waited for the food we noted that this place seems to be the local late-teen's hangout, lots fo dating couples and friends meeting for milkshakes etc. All good. But then a couple of girls came in and occupied the table next to us. Now I dont mind a laugh but wow these two were OTT, squealy and very very loud, then a 3rd came, then a 4th. Now if youre in that age group, think about this... no one else needs to know the intimate details about your weekend. Inside voices please! So we had to move, no one could think or converse near these lot. Ok, customers are not a fault of the cafe, but this is a hard surface environment and that does no favours for noise and no staff member came by and suggested they tone it down a little. Luckily we were able to share a table out the back with a kind couple and we are thankful that no one sparked up while we were there. phew!
The regular latte was a bit bland and more milk than coffee, the skim was better. The muffins were a bit dry and delivered cold on a plate with no extras.
So with heavy heart I have to say, I wouldnt recomend this place. Poor staff, slow service, noisy environment and so-so food and drink. Don't bother.
