“Massive teething problems”
Review of Oreades Cafe - CLOSED

I just cannot comprehend why it takes 45 minutes to make a coffee. In fathomable! We ended up leaving before it arrived. We'd also ordered food. We were advised by wait staff that food would be a half hour wait, but our coffees should arrive much sooner. We cancelled the food order when 30 mins in our coffees hadn't surfaced and then were forced to leave when the coffee did not come after 45 mins.

It's really a terrible shame because the food and coffee that was brought out to another table looked fabulous.

Please consider capping your customer numbers in peak periods to avoid serious dissatisfaction or employ additional staff. Whatever it takes. Please be honest about wait times. Prompt service equals happy customers!

Great new cafe in the lovely setting that used to be Mementos in Blackheath. After years of wonderful coffee and cakes at Memento I was pleasantly surprised to feel the same about the newcomer, Oreades. The coffee was seriously good (we all ordered a second without hesitation) and the food was even better. I had an Italian sausage Bruschetta with roasted mushroom and aged parmesan that was more delicious than expected, and the GF bread (optional) was thin and tasty, too, which is unusual. My friends had fresh sandwiches which looked amazing and tasted just as good, apparently. The service was attentive and friendly. The outdoor seating was comfortable and shady cool on a very hot day. I am looking forward to becoming a regular.
