Reviewed January 12, 2014

We were a group of nine and we were enticed in for breakfast by the smell of fresh muffins displayed in a glass case. There was a sign saying Free WIFI which appealed to the younger members of our group. Orders were placed and smart phones were readied.
After failing to connect to the WIFI we were informed by our waiter that there was in fact no WIFI on the premises, only a sticker on the front door.
After 45 minutes the children were becoming impatient for their muffins which were in plain sight. Several attempts to get them served failed due to some hierarchy issued about who is allowed to serve what to whom. Eventually one of our group went and extracted the muffins from the glass case and served them to the by now starving children. Our breakfast orders started to filter out of the kitchen after an hour. Every single order was somehow wrong. A breakfast which was meant to have two pork sausages and two eggs, had one of each. A scrambled egg order was covered in layers of Salmon. And some orders simply did not arrive at all. We left this dump in a foul mood and only paid a portion of the bill ( which was also a work of fiction ) as we walked away in disgust.
