“Great location, bad coffee”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 October 2013 via mobile

Acutely it's not only the coffee was bad, the service too. You would find a good bagel stuffed with egg and cheese that might satisfy you.

That's too bad for that excellent location.

“Good coffee and location”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 September 2013

On the Quayside, near Scudamore's punt hire depot, and hence if you sit on the terrace, you run the gauntlet of punt hire touts.
A pleasant coffee and pastries place in an excellent location.
Odd thing - why for takeaway can you get a large or a small coffee, but to drink in, only a large! very silly of the management - not everyone wants to drink coffee from buckets.

“Great choices, good service and view”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 August 2013

We decided to have a glas of wine here, since the service at their neighbours was really bad. Here service is very friendy and the choices are great. I really want to come back to taste their cakes. This time I ordered white wine and the portion (medium) was what I consider large and the price reasonable. They also offer peanuts and other things to share. The terrace outside is at a perfect location.

“Overpriced!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 July 2013

The only good thing about Creme du Cafe is its location. We have ordered black coffees the other day which turned out to be a see through liquid of some sort. It looked like they are trying to squeeze out the profit by using the same grounded coffee amount to make more than one coffee. Needless to say that was the worst coffee I have ever seen ( didn't have the courage to taste it judging by the looks of it). Pity for the location. I guess if someone decides to try this place out, remember that you are paying for the location , not the quality of coffee.
