I love the pies and cakes from this bakery and am a frequent visitor to the Centro Shopping Centre branch but I have noticed a disturbing trend of late. The food is still good but the ladies behind the counter seem to feel that chatting among themselves to be far more important than serving customers.
Last Thursday it was so apparent that a young chap came from the back of the cafe and asked "Are you being served" while two female staff members were chatting among themselves right next to me over the espresso machine. My reply "No, I'm being ignored" he replied with an embarrassed sideways glance at the women (who were still oblivious to my presence despite my jibe) "Sorry about that, what can I get you".
Also: I have noticed that some of the cakes, especially the vanilla slices (my favorite) have been sub standard of late, they taste fine but presentation is very haphazard with some looking decidedly mashed.
