“Shambles”
Reviewed 11 August 2014

I've never given a review before, but I was so annoyed about wasting my money here yesterday. I ordered a hot chocolate, crepe and tap water. The hot chocolate came, and was pretty disgusting, but my water and crepe was obviously offered to another table as when I went to the till (and was nearly charged for the crepe) they said 'the customer didn't want it'. It does have a nice view and nice decor but an absolute shambles when it came to service.

“sweet sweet sweet <3”
Reviewed 5 August 2014

I really like this place! My husband and I have been here many times and we enjoyed each visit. The atmosphere is perfect with some lovely comfortable sofa in the window. OMG... Possibly the best waffles we have ever tasted. good place if you want to try different items on the menu it is all delicious, and the price is more than reasonable. The staff are really friendly and accommodating. would strongly recommend

“Fantastic chocolate and service ”
Reviewed 3 August 2014 via mobile

I met with colleagues here for a meeting. It was a real treat, I recommend chocolate strawberries. I super place to near the cathedral. We spent around two hours upstairs in our meeting and ate well. The service was unhurried and nothing was too much trouble.
I really did not expect meeting with colleagues to plan and map out what we need to do to have been such a treat.

“Fantastic”
Reviewed 26 July 2014 via mobile

Called in yesterday for a drink with friends. I had Pimms which was perfect and one friend had a milkshake and pancake. He was in heaven and will definitely go back. The other friend had a cup of tea which was fantastic - even to look at! It was fresh tea and came with a timer so that you could leave the tea in the cup for the optimum time. There were little touches that made the whole experience really special.
The staff were all very friendly and helpful. We will be back!
