“Not fresh cream on a pavlova -yuk”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 October 2013

Be careful as cake does look amazing but it's not fresh cream, it's some kind of artificial cream which leaves a nasty taste & feeling sick for hours, not good if your expecting fresh cream for the price. Two hot drinks & two pieces of pavlova cost nearly 12.00.

“Exactly what the last reviewer said!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 October 2013

The manageress was obnoxious, rude and arrogant and didn't help at all with the fact we had a baby with us. She made us feel more unwelcome than welcome and to top it off the cake had hairs in and the response was 'oh'. Have just walked away feeling sick! Stay away especially if you have children!

“Bad Management!!!!!!! Rude Management!!!!!! What a shame”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 October 2013

My family and I have been visiting this place for many years now for cakes as they are amazing and still are.

However, we will never be returning to this place again.

The Manageress is the most rude and obnoxious person I have ever met. We have always experienced her lack of people skills and her rudeness to her staff but never experienced her rudeness ourselves. Many of the times we have commented on how the staff stay there and work for her as she is very rude and agressive to them and I am surprised she has never had a tribunal case against her for bullying.

The staff are lovely and helpful but always seem to be looking over their shoulder for the bullying Manageress who quite clearly needs re-training in people skills and customer service.

The manageress is definately not child friendly the staff were helpfull but the manageress refused to help. The menageress refused to heat up the baby food, she complained about having us use the babies high chair and told our waitress to ignore us for a while as we were too busy with the baby and to deal with other customers.

We walked out without bothering to order so they lost 8 peoples custom that day and we will never ever return again.

A Note to the Manageress - You are Rude, Ignorant and unprofessional!!!!
