Wonderful to recline in a sofa and take a load off your feet and enjoy a great cup of coffee. This spot is most welcome while the wife and daughter carry on shopping

Went to this place with my friends for a coffee with some snacks. Their Carrot cake was amazing with the coffee. We loved it. This place will be my frequent spot in future. Well done...

They have a large variety of macaroons and other cakes and a good selection of speciality coffees. They have a few "chill couches" so you can chill while having your coffee. Not particularly cheap, but then again, do you find macaroons and speciality coffees everywhere?

Had a lovely coffee whilst people watching in the shopping mall. Gloria Jean's also does lite bites and take away and seemed very popular.

Standard coffee and cake set up. Cake and biscuits not particularly tasty. Rather long wait for coffee. Staff not very friendly.

I ordered a large cappuccino and chicken wrap and the taste and service was of a very high standard. It is a great place to sit and experience the buzz of Gateway Shopping Centre.

After a tough day it was a pleasure to sit down at Gloria Jean's to have some superb coffee and a muffin. The service was impeccable and the coffee tasty and strong. I would certainly recommend having a sit down to recover if you need...More
