“Worst tiramisu ever.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 July 2014

Never order tiramisu from here. It's really really bad. We had coffee which was ok and shared a tiramisu in a plastic case (individual serve). Gosh it was terrible. We tried to have few bites but just could not stand the bad flavour. We ended up order a chocolate mudcake slice. It was good.

“Coffee was shocking”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 July 2014

I stopped in here for a bite and a coffee. The bite was nice enough however the coffee was really not a nice drop. I don't like to judge a place by only one coffee, so I went back the next day. Same result. Won't tempt fate again.

“Tasty and pretty breakfast”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 July 2014

We had breakfast here and it was one of the best I'd had. I'm uploading its photo and leave the photo to speak for itself! Fresh, pretty looking, and delicious.

“Very ordinary main courses and unfriendly service”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 July 2014

We went for dinner last nite and I should of realised at the time I was placing the order that the guys attitude(no smile and abrupt attitude) would be a recipe for disaster. Lamb Shank and Mash - bland/ spaghetti bolognese was a disgusting tomato tasting sauce that I'm sure came straight out of a can-yuk yuk yuk/ beef burger- burnt and terribly presented/ margarita pizza hard base and a few bits of tomato with cheese on top thanks for nothing!!!

“Breakfast / lunch - okay”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 July 2014

Family including grandparents for a family Breakfast / lunch. Service was at best perfunctionary as the waitress did the bare minimum. She gave our daughter a badly burnt pizza, so burnt the kitchen had tried to cut part of crust off it to hide the burnt part, pretty unacceptable and a first for us! We returned it and it was changed however this meant our daughter ate on her own as we had all finished our food by the time hers was remade. 5 of us had breakfast but no butter provided for the toast with any of the breakfasts, we had to go in and get it. The meals were reasonable size, reasonably priced, water was help yourself inside the shop- we were outside- and you could only get a glass not a jug for the table. Large tables for up to 8 were available but one or 2 people were sitting at these and smaller tables available. We did find a table to accommodate us, again with no help from the waitress. Overall the food was fine but I doubt we'd go back again as there are so many other options available.
