I visited this cafe with my dad in April 2012. We ordered lunch and drinks and sat down to wait at one of the tables. The table was filthy - littered with the rubbish of previous customers. When the guy brought the food over, he just placed it down on top of this. I asked him politely if he would mind removing the rubbish and wiping the table down. Very grudgingly, and only after I removed the paper plates cups, and food debris myself, he came back with a paper serviette, and made a single swipe over the table. When I asked him to wipe it properly, he retorted resentfully "I can't wipe what I can see".
He clearly has NO training in public health, and no concept of what bacteria is. I asked to speak with the manager, and he replied he was the manager.
The service was slow, the food over-priced and the attitude of this staff member reprehensible. I asked for a reciept, and I was given a hand-written un-itemised reciept, which didn't allow me to check (as I suspected) whether we had been over-charged for the food we bought. We won't be back.
