“A helensburgh institution”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 13, 2012

The cakes alone are worth going for. The service is good and it's a great place to meet friends and have a coffee.

“Unfriendly & unhelpful staff”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 10, 2012

Didn't find the staff at all helpful or friendly. They're also illiterate as the cake labelled as Banana loaf turned out to be gingerbread. It did look a different colour so you'd have expected they might have twigged. Thankfully there are loads of other places to go in Helensburgh so I'll not be stuck next time in town. Will go back to my old favourite.

“Avoid if you can”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 10, 2012

Myself and my mother had lunch today at the coffee club in Helensburgh. The service was shocking my mother and I sat for 15 mins waiting to be asked what we would like mean while the waiting staff were standing chatting behind the counter that is my first point when the staff eventually decided to ask what we would like I ordered the chicken and mozzarella panini my mum ordered the ham toastie when the came out my panini had the smallest portion of cheese and chicken actually I thought they had forgotten to put cheese on it but no the cheese was there just not alot and the chicken was the slimy cheap chicken pieces that asda sell in there smart price range it was disgusting we also ordered a irn bru and a coffee this came to £15.50 which is totally ridiculous and I feel is a total rip off and over inflated. I will certainly not be going there again and I will tell my friends and family about my experience I know that £15.50 doesn't seem much but the least they could do is make a decent panini
