It’s a lovely looking café, bright, great views, great location on the main street. The atmosphere in the café was nice, lots of space and clean. There was a nice hum to the place.
They offer counter food, and a hot food menu. Standard café fare. And a selection of hot and cold drinks as you’d expect.
The service at the counter was pretty prompt and friendly.
We went in on a Thursday afternoon for a late lunch. We had a couple of toasted sandwiches and corn fritters, as well as a coffee.
The toasted sandwiches were OK, as was the coffee. My son had the corn fritters, which looked great, but were a bit bland. Thanks goodness for the chilli sauce. My son thought that the salad looked great, but he wouldn’t eat it as he found a slug in it!
This is not that uncommon, I reckon. I have accidently left unwanted protein on veges when I cook at home. So, I thought long and hard about mentioning the slug this in this review. I did not want to unreasonably harm the café. But having read some of the other reviews, and considering the way that the staff reacted to this, I concluded that this needed a mention.
When we first found the slug, I wanted to ask for a replacement the meal. But my son wasn’t too bothered, he ate the corn fritters, but left the salad. This was a real shame because he said that the salad looked great. My wife took the slug and the leaf it was on the to staff member at the counter. They were horrified, but did not offer to replace the meal, or a refund or discount. Or even come over to apologise.
This illustration of the lack of respect for the customer needs to be mentioned.
We were in Picton for 3 days. We did not return to the café.
