I normally don't like to be critical of a place as you never know whether a bad day or not---but unfortunately I have visited several times and compared with our Muffin Break here in Botany I find the service is not good.

Been there for a quick drink. Had ice chocolate and cookie for takeaway. Staff was very polite and friendly. The ice chocolate was thick and full of flavour. Not the usual watery stuff you get in the franchise cafes. Keep it up!!!!
