How can a cafe sell food and then expect you to eat it at dirty tables with bird poo on. The food was expensive and the service was amatuer. School kids with bad attitudes.
the wine we ordered was dreadful, thought it was oxidised so bought a bottle and this was still horrid. The grounds are shabby and the staff are dressed in whatever they could throw on that morning. Expensive and a waste of money

The only thing that let the vines down was the service in the prenzel shop and the dreary wine.
