    The food was delicious but unfortunately that was the only good thing. We had booked for 4 however the table was only set for 3 and we had to ask for another menu and cutlery set. Once we had finished our meals, no one came to our table to clear it or ask if we wanted anything else (the restaurant wasn’t busy at this point and about 3-4 staff members were chatting up at the front counter). We were looking to order dessert however ended up leaving due to the poor service.

    Service was very average, we had to flag someone down to order and for additional coffee and will not split bills, even in half. Surely it’s not that hard. Disappointing visit.

    They overbooked the timeslot I first selected and I had to change. The food took quite a while to come out considering there was no one there at 8am. And when it did come out it was cold, the bacon was barely cooked. I wanted to have a Father's day breakfast to remember, this will probably be for the wrong reasons though. Not likely to be back.

    Cafe was lovely, initial service was incredible but lacked after our meals were served and we were left with dirty plates and several coffee cups in front of us for at least 30 minutes and were not cleared before we left.

    Terrible service, coffees took +30 minutes, food took +30 minutes (ordered after coffees), and the cafe had barely any customers. Reluctant to ever return.

    Great service. Good food. Reasonably priced. Not too noisy- we could hold a conversation without yelling!

    The food was great BUT the restaurant did not have our booking which was done online through Dimmi. A very big fail for us!

    Would be great if meals could be bought out at the same time as we had a number of people who had to wait quite a while for their meals to arrive which meant that ours went cold while we waited. Splitting bills would be really helpful even if it was cash only or a small fee per person for card. We probably won't come back in future as a group unless this policy changes. Lovely restaurant, nice food. Love the choices that come with the breakfast eggs. Thanks very much.

    Food was nice, but standard of food is not as good as it use to be and menu appears to have less options. Hoping this was a one off

    Menu needs more variety. Service somewhat friendly but needs to be more attentive.
