I’ve been here a couple of times, the cafe food is very nice, albeit a little expensive…I’ve had the french toast, which was very good, and I’ve tried the choc-caramel slice, which is tasty. However, I recently had a bad experience with takeaway side of the business. Last weekend (21/03/11) I was there, and I wanted to buy a bottle of diet coke, so I got in line behind one other customer, and waited for about 5 or 10 minutes while he placed his order. There was only one person working the till, and she kept disappearing. Then, a woman with a bunch of children came up to the counter, and stood on the other side, next to the ice cream cabinet, all her children yelling about which flavours they wanted. By this time, the customer I had originally been behind had placed his order and sat down, and I had been waiting for close to 15 minutes. The girl who worked there came back out from the back, and even though she knew I had been there for far longer (a good 15 minutes) than the woman with kids who wanted ice cream, she served her first. The order was long and involved, and I ended up waiting over 15 minutes for a small bottle of diet coke! If I hadn’t been so thirsty, I’d have left. Honestly, I will think twice about going back there, as the service is both slow and unfair.
