Visited today for a couple of drinks. I hadn’t been before. It is located inside the old main post office and I have to say I like the interior. Seats, high backs, sofas and even a lovely fireplace. We had a coconut hot chocolate and a straight black coffee and sat by the open window. Nice location for the breeze but sadly the smoke from the outdoor tables wafts through and takes the edge off a bit when you are a non-smoker. Also, if you are going to open the windows, why not wipe the dust and cobwebs off the railings in the window?
Sitting in a cafe gives you time to watch the world go by and see how people work. It was interesting that one member of staff services three tables over a period of 5 minutes or so and totally missed the full tray from a previous customer until a fourth visit to a nearby table. Seemed a little “unproductive”!
My main concern was glancing over to where the counter and I assume the area for dirty dishes and plates, to see the same member of staff “swigging” from a large plastic looking jug which I guess contained the leftovers from a previously prepared drink! Now I am no food hygiene expert and all workers are entitled to breaks and drinks but was this really appropriate behaviour behind the counter? If that is acceptable in this establishment then I will not be rushing back.
Shame because the hot food smells were quite lovely.
