Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

It is interesting to read the recent bad review just now. I had an urge to add a review based on similar service that I experienced last month and now I know that I am not alone. I ordered my coffee and cake and it...took the girl behind the counter some time to get the order correct, all the while implying it was MY fault. The cake came and my coffee came about 10 minutes later. I had almost finished my cake and made a small comment to the girl who brought it over. Hoping to get an apology, and maybe make a small change to how they time their serving of drinks and food etc. A pretty common-sense outcome I would think. The girl was so rude in her response, stating that I should have requested the cake to come out with the coffee. Was a little heavy handed with my coffee and exuded a filthy attitude. I have not ever been blown away with the service received here, and find the sandwiches dry and cakes overpriced. I only go in for convenience but do not recommend. Enter at your own risk.More

I usually visit with some colleagues to buy cakes and such for afternoon tea. The service isn't always pleasant, but today was particularly bad. We noticed some VERY bad customer service and decided to leave. A lady at the counter asked for her sandwich to...be removed from the toaster. She was rudely spoken to, told it had to stay in the toaster for longer, a time was given but didn't catch that. She then explained she had to leave, so please take it out. I dont know why the girl in the ponytail was so argumentative with the customer, but the customer told her not to argue next time, a polite applogy is what should've happened. Im appalled, too. We left. I won't return. That service was shocking, and what made it worse is that I was with an international client who heard it all. That girl needs retraining in customer service. There are plenty of bakery's to choose from I'm going to Perrymans from now on.More

We actually detoured to North Adelaide on our way home from KI simply to buy mac n cheese beef brisket pies and nutella bombs. The hardest part is not buying one of everything.

We had lunch here, some of the food we had was good, but the majority of it was average. The bakery was busy when we where there.

I approached the waitress who served me coffee and complained that there was a couple chain smoking at a dining table, with clouds of smoke blowing over 5 other tables where people, including a mother and her baby, were eating. She said something to them,...but they ignored her. I went back to see the waitress to complain that I didn't like passive smoking. She just said she told them and that was that. When I said she needed to stop them as it was clearly labelled on the tables "NO Smoking", which was a South Australian Government signage. She had the disrespectful cheek to tell me that they were regular customers, so they were not going to stop them. I told her that it was illegal to smoke in NO Smoking areas and I was going to lodge a complaint with the Gov Heath Dept, which I did! They obviouy don't need new customers, or care if they get them!More

Luckily, we only found this place late on in our trip or we would have been eating pies for every meal every day, especially as they are open 24 hours a day! We tried a mac and cheese pie and a pie floater plus a...cake and all were absolutely delicious as well as being well priced and the staff were great. We wanted to take some small pies to go but unfortunately they only do these in packs of a dozen, not a half dozen, mores the pity. Well worth a visit, but ake sure you're hungry!More

The thing I love about this place the most is the huge array of choice. It is just hard to narrow down your choices!!! This time I had a curry prawn pie (at 830 in the morning!?!? Is that acceptable!?!?) and the flavour was so...good ….just a tad too sloppy as it was a little overfilled with (yummy) sauce. Won’t stop me having another some time…..More

Dropped in here after dinner to buy dessert. I was quite surprised that the tables were o my wiped over to remove crumbs without the use of a sanitizing cleaning agent. I will not be returning for this reason.
