Pleasant setting (not if you don't like birds), good coffee, decent food, reasonably priced.

“Dreadful service, would never go again.”
Reviewed March 16, 2012

We visited this restaurant for a light lunchtime snack and because of the weather preferred to sit outside. A table for four was not available and so we were shown to a table inside. We sat at the table for nearly 10 minutes waiting for a menu, no one seemed to be responsible for our table and those that were "serving" all failed to make eye contact with us. We eventually caught the eye of a male waiter who had taken the order from other long suffering clients at another table, he clearly did not think it was his responsibility to attend to us but eventually brought us menu's. There were no glasses at the water dispenser so we asked him for water, not happy at that request! We waited another 5-10 minutes before he returned to take our orders during which time people that had arrived after us and were seated outside were receiving their orders. When the waiter eventually returned to us there was no apology for keeping us waiting, two orders were placed and then my wife asked the size of the portion of her choice......"I don't know" came the reply! We were clearly an inconvenience and he had no intention of finding out, so we left. He called out after us "have a nice day!". We were visiting from overseas but one of our party is a local!
