Called in for lunch here instead of visiting the high profile competitor next door. Seems that they didn't anticipate the volume of customers. Staff constantly apologising for slow service due to being understaffed. Took about 15 minutes for a drink order to be taken. I...More

Two wins for this cafe, customer service and location. The food however is terrible and poorly priced pizza wise for the quality. Really needs a menu overhaul.
