Had a really great Lunch here today. Walked in and was greeted immediately by whom i think was the manager, she couldn't have been more friendly or helpful. Directing me around the food menu and recommending what she thought would be good today. When my food came out it was great, well done to the chef. The staff made me feel so at ease that i ended up wasting a couple of hours in the cafe reading newspapers and drinking coffee when i finished my lunch. Thanks to all for a great afternoon.

went in to the cafe at 10am, looking for some breakfast, staff totally ignored me while I queued up, no eye contact no acknowledgement, big queue developed yet staff were just so unaware of what was going on
I left without having anything
what is the point in opening if you have no staff and what staff were there could not care less
AVOID

Went here for a quick bite to eat and was appalled at what we experienced as it used to be somewhere that I went regularly and always enjoyed. One member of staff was particularly rude and service appalling

The food here is very good when served correctly. They use microwaves to reheat pre-cooked dishes which leaves pastry and the like slightly soggy. Their paninis are fantastic when toased correctly (occassionally cold in the middle). However the cleaning of tables (even when moderately busy) leaves alot to be desired and the service is generally not great although the staff seem nice. A new manager could work wonders there, getting the place to be slightly more professional. I would reccommend it to people who aren't too fussed on quick service. The cutlery could do with being checked when taken out of dishwasher as not always sparkling clean and they rarely have ice for drinks which come from a lukewarm fridge. However despite the flaws I do visit regularly and will continue to do so as long as their paninis are delicious and prices are decent.

Lovely for a coffee & scone or full on lunch. The take away dinners are very tasty too.
