I very rarely give a poor review but I was quite astonished and very disappointed with this place. My first small doubt was the general 'down at heel' feeling, but decided to give it a chance. We ordered Latte's and toasted bagels with a "choice...More

Took 10 minutes for someone to greet us and take our drinks order, and 45 minutes before our food came. No apologies at that point. I had a salad with olives. Some of the olives were pitted and some weren't. Maybe it's just me but...More

Terrible coffee charged at usual inflated prices!! I'm sure the stuff came from a push-button machine. Either that or it was instant coffee with frothy milk on top. If you can't make proper coffee don't pretend you can!!

There isn't much seating inside but there is a pleasant courtyard. There is a good choice of lunchtime food which is very tasty. The staff were very welcoming.

Ok, so the building is a bit ramshackle and it is a bit odd having a bathroom (including bath) rather than just a café toilet. However the staff were really friendly and accommodating of adapting meals to suit children. The food was really good and...More

We arrived and greeted by a slightly rude and flustered man who told us to sit down and he would come to us when he was ready. A younger make server was no better; when I asked for a new teacup because mine was dirty...More
