“Good food, relaxing atmosphere”
Reviewed April 28, 2014

We shared the cheese and meat platter with bread. It was very nice and quite sufficient for us for lunch.
The service was good and the seats very comfortable.
The price was a bit higher than other restaurants but the food is not really local produce so that is to be expected.

Dear Culinquiet,

Thank you for taking the time to write this review and I am very sorry for the experience you had with our carrot cake.

Let me first say that this carrot cake is indeed under cooked and should in no way have been served.

The honest truth is that a new member of staff had taken upon himself to start making the cake and for some reason none of our staff stopped the cake from being served and I did not realize it before it was too late.

I am truly sorry about this and hope that if you look through previous reviews you can see that the feedback of our carrot cake (prepared the proper way) is very different than the experience you unfortunately had.

As for the carrot cake not being in stock it means that we had run out at The Hill Station Deli and had to go to The Hill Station Signature to get more as that is where we cook both our cakes and bread - I hope this did not cause too much of a delay.

In closing I would like to make the following promise: While our carrot cake can be more moist than most others it should not look like the one in the picture and if anyone in the future receive an under cooked cake similar to the picture we will offer you a free coffee or hot chocolate as compensation! (Please understand that we might sometimes run out of carrot cake as we only make a limited amount each day.)

Thank you again for the feedback and wish you a nice day,

Tommy

“Worst carrot cake ever”
Reviewed April 14, 2014 via mobile

We got there to have dessert and I ordered carrot cake and it was the worst carrot cake I have ever tried. The inside was not done. Maybe the other things are better.
