“Rude owner!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 October 2013

The service in this cafe was really quite unbelievable but not in a good way., Firstly there was an issue with where we were sitting, as it seemed we were taking up too much room by occupying a four seat table instead of a two seat table. We ordered a breakfast each and some toast came up first which was black and burnt, On mentioning this, the owner turned round and said there's nothing wrong with it. Long story shut, a row ensued and we walked out of the cafe with the owner following us into the street telling us not to come back - believe me we wont! The service stinks.

I have continued to come here over the years and have enjoyed my experience however, as of late, there is an elderly man who works there who I presume to be the owner who, on the past 3 occasions we have visited, has felt the need to say the most inappropriate comments to my girlfriend, offering to take his shirt off and give it to her, never looking at her face when speaking to her if you catch my drift and makes us both feel very uncomfortable around his perverted comments, acting as if im not even there!!!!!
If it was a younger man making these comments to your other half it would be deemed outrageous but because he is older he feels its ok for him to say and then keeps coming back to make more comments!!!!!
Anyone who wants to go for a meal without your other half or daughter being harassed then do not go here!!!!!!!!
