Friday rolled around and we decided to try out a new Cafe for lunch. It is situated in a smaller shopping precinct with several other eateries as well as a variety of retail shops.
It is only a short distance from where we live so it didn't take us long to get there.
Whilst it is obviously very popular it didn't take long to select our food and order coffees as well as have some of our food heated then make our way to a table before staff bought it to us.
We found the service excellent and staff extremely courteous enquiring if there was anything else they could do for us. Being a lunch time and the peak trading time we were impressed with the organisation of clearing and cleaning tables almost as soon as guests left.
Pricing is very competitive and reasonable. The table layout is just right without having to clammer over other clientele.
They also offer a variety of Dutch cheeses and other imported Dutch products which appears to be an important part of their business.
Highly recommended.
