“Breakfast”
Reviewed January 3, 2014 via mobile

Normally a huge fan, but today it changed. Long wait for coffees and breakfast. We had bacon & eggs. Small portions, and nothing special. My daughter had the Chicken Foccacia, which she didn't eat. I told the girl, who didn't particularly care. It had a very strange taste.... Coffee take away now for me from now on.

Hi Jane,

Thank you for the feedback! I’m sorry to hear you were not completely satisfied with your experience. During the summer, we are aware that our customers will experience waits for both coffee and drinks, as we do have a very small kitchen. Our baristas are magical, and make hundreds and hundreds of coffee each day. For this reason, our wait staffs advise each customer of the expected wait time, at the time they are seated. I am very disappointed that the service did not meet your expectations (or the expectations we have of our staff!). Your waitress should have advised you of a wait time, and certainly acknowledged and dealt with the issue of your chicken focaccia. I can assure you I will be speaking to all staff about this. Also, please know that the issue with the chicken focaccia was bought to the attention of the kitchen immediately after seeing this review, and your feedback has been taken on board. Thank you again – we truly appreciate both your business and feedback, and hope to see you in soon!

Our hotel recommended Buckley's Chance for lunch and it was a good option. Food was very nice and service was excellent. It is a great choice for breakfast or lunch.

“All about pancakes.”

Its famous for pancakes. Forget the other dishes. All about great pancakes, any time of day. A good selection of pancakes makes you content easily.

“Best coffee in sorrento”
Reviewed November 25, 2013 via mobile

Great coffee served by pleasant obliging staff and if you want to add something to eat try the muffin of the day with yoghurt or the toasted in house made banana bread. We have been here many times and it is without doubt the best coffee in sorrento. If you are a regular get a Buckley's rewards card and pick up a good discount every now and then as well.

“Very Good Lunch”
Reviewed November 11, 2013

We stumbled across this cafe and both enjoyed our light lunches - brushetta and steak focaccia. The cafe is spacious, light filled and yet cosy. The service was friendly and very efficient.
