Review: We have visited this cafe many times over the last few years. Behind a bookshelf in this wonderful bookstore, it is a great find for hungry walkers & cyclists. I do have to say we were disappointed this time with the food quality having slipped a bit. The cakes were old and then still out 2 days later! The menu needs changing and there is a lady during the week serving who is a hit grumpy- a shame in such a lovely space.
Hi i just wondered how you assessed the cakes were old and how you think they were the same ones 2 days later. isnt it possible that cakes were got out and were unfortunately the same flavours again? Also i happen to know that one of the women that worked there had been ill (and had to have a major operation last year ) maybe she was having a bad day with pain.
Well, they could have been different but as they were some kinds with less slices we figure they were the same. I have baked for years. so I know an old cake when I taste one. Its unfortunate if the person serving was ill, but she is always grumpy and we go a lot. I wouldn't say massively rude, but a shame for such a lovely cafe not to have friendly happy staff. The menu does need to change though.
