Terrible place! Visited here a couple of times only on the invitation of friends with small children. The staff are sour and who are completely intolerant of children and not shy about giving out to them about the slightest thing. The noise level is so high when its busy that you cannot hear conversation, its like a bird cage. Would not go back and the coffee was rotten!

I would highly recommend The Courtyard. The food is extremely tasty and with cheap prices and fast service,it is one of the best spots to grab lunch. The lasagna and omelettes are great, as well as delicious desserts. I must stress that it is quite small and the clientele are usually locals. However if you're looking for fresh homemade food in a homely atmosphere, you will find it here.

This place is near is near my work and used to visit a lot but I try to avoid at all cost now.It is very small with tiny chairs and tables pushed close together. It is always packed as food is cheap and quite tasty but the noise levels are simply too much and it is impossible to have an conversation.The people in the courtyard are mainly elderly or young mothers from the nearby playgroup. The lady who seems to be in charge holds a grudge if you query anything. I was shortchanged and pointed this out to her(politely)and while she admitted she had made an error, the last couple of times I was there she has looked daggers at me and sent someone else to take my order! Another friend of mine told me she also has not been forgiven for complaining about hot chocolate made with sour milk. Go for desserts which are lovely but get them to go is my advise.
