“Loved it.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 6, 2013

My wife and had only wished we found this place sooner. There is a wide variety of primarily vegetarian dishes although there are a couple of meat items available. Home baked breads and treats are sold as well. The food was delicious and freshly prepared every morning. The coffee was excellent. Service was a bit slow but I attribute that to it being very busy. A very relaxing atmosphere, perfect while on holiday.
Free WiFi is available. Overall a great experience.

“Maybe will come back to try other dishes.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 4, 2013

I personally ordered a salad dish. Tasted really good, and what the others in our party ordered also seemed tasty. Drinks could be a bit colder again (Berry-liscious). Staff could be more attentive and check back at our table what else we'd need, as while it was a busy lunch time, there were at least 2-3 staff just standing and chatting with each other, at several occasions.
Might or might not come back to try other dishes.

Hello MDNS,

Thank you for your insightful and honest review. It pleases us that the salad "tasted really good" and everything else "seemed tasty"... Looks like a good review to us! Perhaps you missed a star or two ;)

The charismatic and well read readers of Trip Adviser understand that on the odd occasion waiters need to group in order to communicate and share information about the goings on in a busy cafe. We encourage this, however if there is indeed a pressing matter and the temperature of ones drink is rising, I'm certain that said individual could easily seek the attention of aforementioned waiters, even the chatty ones.

Dear guests should know that almost every issue can be resolved in person, if the service is lacking in any way a quick word to our manager and presto! We would happily accept responsibility and deduct the service charge from your bill. Its the least we can do!

Have a great day!
Watercress Team.
