“Not as good as it used to be, Terrible new Staff, horrible milky weak tea.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 August 2014

The Lindale Cafe in Blackpool is a good cafe, decent prices and good food, but my last couple of visits i have to say it is not as good as it used to be, the tea was terrible, it was like drinking a cup of hot milk, they must be using really weak teabags, they should serve the tea in a teapot, no excuses its just lazy giving the customer a cup.
The new staff are terrible, they don't smile or say thank you or goodbye, they don't care about customer service.
I hope when i go back to the Lindale cafe they improve and get better staff and listen to my complaints.

“Nice food. Friendly service.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 August 2014 via mobile

Called in as we were walking past. Decent breakfast which included a cuppa for £3.95. Friendly staff. Nice café, would call again. Not sure what some of the negative reviewers were expecting from such a café but I found it pleasant and the food was good.

“Still good but has changed for the worse”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 August 2014 via mobile

Been going here for years still very busy good portions and reasonable value noticed the chips are now oven chips and I prefer good old fried chips tables seem a bit more cramped maybe squeezed in an extra table won't put anyone off but with the value and choice on offer very close by in the mermaid for example I personally would try elsewhere

“5 star hygiene. Should be three and staff need customer service skills!!!!”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 August 2014 via mobile

Used this cafe as hotel we stayed was room only so had a 10% off voucher. Should not be 5* for hygeine more like 3*.. Had breakfast which was ok but cheap sausages and had to pay as soon as we ordered. Staff very very miserable. We even said thank you and bye as we left and had no response how rude!!! Tried an evening meal and the chips very dry it was awful and staff still miserable. There are much better cafés than this one which friendly welcoming staff.. Would not recommend this awful place unless they changed the staff!!!!
