Got to the counter and the lady on the register turned her back grabbed a drink from the fridge and had a drink before we could order. Reasonable in the weather conditions currently in Brisbane. However, the manager soon emerged and started an argument with his staff as we were ordering. Coffees took 10 minutes and food wasn't long after... More

Although an excellent location, there is nothing else going for this place. Bad service and bad food. My coffee was cold, even though I asked for it to be extra hot. My sliders were almost inedible. Perhaps they could train their staff to smile. It couldn't hurt.

The service was quick and the food was good, just jam and cream and scones with coffees. Pleasant waitress added to the experience, not sure why the reviews are so bad before our visit, but our visit was in the lead up to Xmas. Worth the convenience while shopping

Ordered a quinoa salad for lunch and was really disappointed at the size of the portion for the price ($16.90). Don't bother and don't support businesses like this.

Came here for lunch...bad mistake. We ordered 3 Iced Coffee's that had to go back and be remade then only to go back again in exchange for juice drinks as tasted like milky water. Lunch we waited about 45 minutes and the place wasnt even a third full. When we approached the waitress she apologized and said they have run... More

Bad coffee, bad service, bad experience. This cafe prides itself on good coffee and yet it's disgusting and weak, and they don't even bother to put your long black in a double cup. Rude servers and they told my mother to wait at the back of the cafe for her coffee... are you serious? Waste of time and a waste... More

Really disappointed I could have done better myself without much effort, the reason they got 2 instead of 0 is the nice girls who waited. Will not be back.

It was 4.30pm and staff refused to serve customers even though Westfield is open until 5pm. Pretty disappointing and loads of very annoyed potential customers.

Bad coffee bad service bad food Kitchen needs a good clean. Zymil coffee ordered was actually soy. Sour dough bread was like Helgas packet loaf home stuff. $40 for 2 avocado toast breakfasts and 2 coffees a joke. Staff are not trained and timid. Mentioned the coffee was wrong and wait staff giggled and walked off.
