“Rudest person we've ever met . The food was awful”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 May 2014

After visiting this cafe over the weekend and as I never ever feel the need to write any reviews I thought I would share the experience.
The old lady was unhelpful - rude - ignorant and disrespectful she is in the wrong business.
We ordered scones which were vile they were a heated block of soda bread put in a microwave and were not cheap. As a healthy conscious place I'd assume there would be nuts - fruit - wholesome items in the scones but no they were bare of any ingredient apart from dough.

The coffee tasted like chicory from 1980s and could not be drunk - the hot chocolate was a powdered chocolate / on leaving she never said thanks or goodbye -

I advise you all strongly go there at your peril worst cafe ever visited and never again.

“Very unwelcoming”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 April 2014

After a guided walk we were taken to this café run buy the partner of one of our guides. It harks back to the 1960's with dreary plastic table cloths and tired outdated décor. The welcome was not warm and during our visit a lady with children and a push chair who had struggled upstairs was turned away with the proprietor stating "I'm too busy for you now".

“Mediocre Restaurant”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 January 2014

This restaurant is far from cheap, and unfortunately the food we had was very lacking in flavour. Restaurants selling a good range of vegetarian foods are fairly thin on the ground and we were quite excited to try the Acorn Café. However, the dishes we had were for want of a better word "boring" and lacking in flavour. Veggie food, when done well, can be really exciting but unfortunately, the food we were served was anything but.

We will not be going back.
