“Standard Cafe fare; Little Gluten Free”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 August 2014

Stooped by the cafe in the Strand Shopping Centre. They have some nice Frappes for the summer and the coffees are fine too.

Less choice for Gluten Free eaters, only baked potato and potato crisps, no gluten free cakes or other option.

“Pretty Average”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 March 2014

Went for lunch here and chose a chicken salad for £6.50. It took a surprising amount of time to arrive considering it required no cooking but the location is bright and pleasant enough, it doesn't feel as cheap and nasty as most "shopping centre" cafe's are.

The salad bowl was probably the most aesthetically pleasing thing of the meal. It had a feel of a deli salad box where a variety of chilled vegetables are laid out and thrown on top of one another in random fashion. The chicken was then put on top and the dressing at the end resulting in some heavily seasoned chicken and plain salad. I've never seen so much onion in my life in a salad and whilst I enjoy a bit of onion I don't expect it to be the dominant vegetable in a salad.

Despite this the meal was fresh and tasty and certainly not the worst meal I've had but it didn't encourage me to rush back, frankly I would do a better job myself.
