We have just come back from our weekly shop in rye ,we decided as the weather was so nice we would skip breakfast and have coffee and cake or snack in rye. We decided to try this relatively newish cafe /coffee shop. We walked up to the counter to look at the menu, there were a few customers sitting outside (we later discovered one was actually a waitress ) we waited and waited eventually a waitress came in went behind the counter and served a lady who had actually come in after us (all the time ignoring us completely ) it was perfectly obvious we were waiting to order, however without so much as a glance at us the blonde waitress continued to prepare the order for the other customer she then still ignoring us walked past us and outside to serve the customer this was now over 10 minutes of standing at the counter!!!! This waitress now proceeded to stay outside chatting to some bloke she obviously knew. This was not a young girl we are talking about but an older woman( no spring chicken that's for sure .) we had enough we decided to go elsewhere as we walked out she passed us coming in and still ignoring us!!! All I can imagine is she doesn't like where she works and is trying to put the place out of business so she can go back to whatever she did before this job... Good thing too waitressing and the service industry obviously is not for her. Can't rate the food didn't get a chance to try it!!! And will make sure we never go back .. Will also pass the word on about this place ... DONT GO it's terrible ... We own a restaurant and believe me it doesn't matter how good the food is or how cheep the prices if the service is bad you're screwed because nobody will come.
