“Best Cafe in the area”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 20, 2011

I took my family for brunch, staff and atomsphere was very good. The service was good considering it was flat out with customers. The food & coffee served was excellent. Definitely will go again.

“What a disappointment”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 13, 2011

4 of us went here for Sunday morning breakfast and we all ordered our food. The Eggs Benedict came out and had amazing bread with them. This was a very good breakfast, There was a full breakfast that was ok and pancakes that were just ok. The last breakfast was bacon and eggs. The bacon was fatty and the bread (brown) was stale and rock hard.

While we there the door was opened so we closed it and one of the staff approached us and told us not to close the door again as it was against their rules to have it closed. it was a fire door. She was quite rude to us. We pointed out that it was quite cold and every time the doors of the mall opened that there was a gale of wind. She refused to discuss the matter and said that it was a fire door. I pointed out that the law in relation to fire doors was that they were easy accessible but there was nothing stating that they had to be open 24 hours. She refused to even leave the door half closed. Staff remember that without customers you loose your job. i wouldnt go back there again
