We were there for breakfast two time: one seated and one to go. Pastries are fresh and pretty good and we are demanding (we are french). Staff is very friendly

We had afternoon tea in lieu of having dinner. The waitress was very helpful and efficient and the tea was yummy. It's a nice way to enjoy an afternoon tea that is ample for two people.

Just dropped by for a slice of cake & a cup of coffee. Tried their Double Choc and Double Machiato, not bad but not good either.

Extremely rude tattooed female staff. She literally screamed at me for sitting down on a table that was empty. No assistance to seat customers; if they had then people would not have to wrestle for tables. She should be arranging stock at the back pantry...More
