“Late Afternoon Lunch”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 12, 2014

The ambience and setting is wonderful! Even though set on a relatively busy street, it's calming and quiet in the premises. Lovely menu and very tasty cakes - however, the service was sadly lacking - I got the feeling that the staff have not been trained to their full potential and appeared almost uninterested in what they were doing.
I will however go back and give it another try! Thank you!

“Shocking service.”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 10, 2014 via mobile

On arrival our waitress looked at us like we were from Mars when we asked for a table and she then said "there are tables over there". It was very difficult to get her attention to order and we waited ages for food. When the food eventually did arrive, our waitress bought 3 meals instead of 4 and seemed to have forgotten about the other. When reminded 10 minutes later, she bought the food without even the slightest apology. The food wasn't bad but it wasn't good. It was definitely not worth the nightmare waitress.

“Worst Service Ever!!!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 3, 2014

Was there for breakfast this morning, received my cappucino while waiting for a friend. Friend arrived ordered another 2 cappucinos. Then waited over 1 hour, never asked for refill or another drink, never asked to order food. We tried repeatedly to get anyone's attention...nothing. Then finally waited over 15 mins for the bill, and then after another 10 minutes of not being able to pay I eventually went inside to pay. Terrible terrible service. Would never suggest the place to anyone!!!

“Treats to die for”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 16, 2014

Wonderful homemade sweet treats and small meals from decadent to prudent. The health breakfast is huge and delicious; the light meals are fresh and imaginative.

“Private event”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 16, 2014 via mobile

Good service, friendly staff and well prepared food. Nice outside area. Enjoyable venue certainly for a private party. Very hot but related to the weather as it is 30 ○ Celsius! !
