The place is very small, I went with my two babies and they only have one high chair for the whole community, that means not even enough for a mother with her two babies... the buggy couldn't pass the door without help of other customers, once inside I realized there was not even space for us and no space to leave the buggy, outside was windy, rainy, I couldn't just leave the buggy outside the wind would blown it under a car, we couldn't sit inside, and not outside, even if they had high chairs outside was windy, cold, rainy (under the roof was rainy due to the storn) and with those weather conditions, plus all the smokers around is not a place for two babies to stay, so we just left the place and couldn't have a simple coffee, no place to go... never going back there

There are no menus on the tables and you have to stand at the counter to read the overhead menu (in very small print). I noticed an elderly lady had to ask what was available as she could not see that far away. Its not clear if you wait at your table or order at the counter after this as no staff came over to take our order. Food was extremely slow in coming out (2 sandwiches - the only order in with the chef at the time - took 30mins) by which time our coffees were finished and catching the waitress's eye in order to ask for more proved impossible so food had to be eaten without coffee. The food portions are small. When paying at till I noticed that all the dishes were being rinsed under a running tap and not washed in detergent. A quick rinse and job done apparently - not good enough. I wont be returning.
