Reviewed 3 weeks ago

We had to check the receipt to make sure we were reviewing the right place after the series of terrible reviews on this site, but yes, we had lovely coffee and cake here. There was a huge variety of cakes on offer which made it really hard to choose: I had a sticky toffee muffin and my husband had chocolate fudge cake. Both arrived on plates with a small helping of fruit (strawberries, blueberries, raspberries) and a dollop of cream - very attractive presentation. The coffee was good, hot and not bitter. Efficient and friendly service.

We sat outside on the pavement to watch the world go by, certainly did not notice intrusive music.

The toilets were spotless and fully functional.

This Cafe is cute on he inside and has a nice garden area upstairs. However, the workers took turns taking smoke breaks in the garden area so someone was always smoking outside. My order was also wrong, but didn’t have time to get it fixed. Everyone else’s food was decent.

The place is adorable, loved the decor, but the food was so so. Not much flavor and not worth the price. I had the fried fish only 1 piece and not very big. The carrots tasted flat. My partner had bacon and cabbage. Presentation could have been much better and the bacon was very fatty. On the other hand the servers were so cute and kind. We were The only people eating in the restaurant, so that should have been a clue, but the worse part was the music! It was so bad it made elevator music sound good. Sorry to say we will not be back. I hope they can make some changes, easy fixes, and turn things around. Maybe other times of the day are better.

Very friendly staff, food only average. Very unique, vintage decor. Quiet and relaxing cafe. The pizza was nice.

Ok, so here is the bottom line. Very cute decor. Friendly staff. Good place for a quick meal or just a relaxing coffee. The tuna panini and the Guinness beef stew were both good. Broad menu for breakfast and lunch. Conveniently located on a major street in town.
