“Great coffee”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 September 2013 via mobile

Really excellent coffee, and food. They obviously take pride in what they do. Friendly service. Only 4 stars on the food as sausage roll was a bit hard when warmed up. But the baguettes were unreal. Bread straight out of the oven and then cooled.

“Attitude”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 January 2013

Mid afternoon on not a nice looking for a late breakfast, place open, this was an assumption, as the windows were steamed up! No opening times up in or outside went to order food and was told we shut in 30mins so were not doing food now, so settled for a coffee, which was cheap and nasty. How to promote your business, NOT, a customer give you money for your service no service no money, if you are going to survive, you need to put yourself out.

“a must for everone”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 October 2012

what a traditional corner cafe . wonderful reception (sadly missing in todays world) . 1st class service with a smile.
the food is of good quality ,just as it says on the menu.
a good location for visitors to meet the locals for a chat and watch the world go back while we were there, enjoying lunch , it was interesting to note that the other local cafes were empty. that says it all . hurrah for tradition .

“Not consistent”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 October 2012

Have visited this cafe a few times recently and have come to the conclusion that the service you receive here varies too much.

On occasions have been very pleased with the standard of food and drinks and at other times very disappointed. For example when buying coffee, it has ranged from so strong its impossible to drink to just about able to taste coffee in it. Also the temperature of coffee varies from hot to just warm.

I witnessed an embarrassing moment only last week when an elderly Scottish man visited the cafe asking if they had any pies. Both young people who were serving in the cafe did not understand what the man was saying because of his strong accent and just kept saying "What?". The man got annoyed and left without ordering anything. Not the first time this sort of thing has gone on there.

This cafe needs to raise its standards as they are just one of many cafes in the town.
