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.
Learn more about our review moderation.

My Husband and I had a cuppa and date and walnut slice. All the staff were most attentive and friendly. We were made to feel not only welcome but valued- a true experience! Also, the coffee was perfect- not burnt. We will definitely be enjoying...more time and refreshments there!More

Hubby & I had breakfast at Eat, lovely caramel latte, hubby had a milkshake which he was very impressed by, especially as he didn't have to ask for anything fancy, just an old fashioned milkshake. Our breakfast was tasty & satisfying. The staff were very...friendly, thank you Eat we will be back.More

Family members visited recently for brunch, were delivered a burnt omlette for which there was no apology, and pancakes which were chewy, large and oddly shaped with burnt bacon. The waitress simply stated the chef was having issues with the hot plate, or in other...words was not keeping an eye on what they wer preparing. Place not overly busy. No a good experience and will not return.More

A simple snack lunch of a pot of tea for Two plus four cheese rolls turned into a marathon. Not overly busy lunch period, after 20 minutes of waiting I asked how far away our order was. Apology made and the tea arrived a few...minutes later. No food. A further 15 minutes went by.... Still no food. We paid for the tea and left after being told it was ready. Not the case, it wasn't our food. This is nothing to do with Covid, this was well handled by the staff. This was simply gross inefficiency.More

First visit was to catch up with local rellies, and the eggs meals we all had were so good I returned the next day. When we had finished our coffee I asked if we could stay a wee bit and Laurel brought us water and...really encouraged us to stay, although they were clearly busy.More

Dislike having to give this cafe an undeserving one, a child could serve & cook better. Went there - out of seafood chowder, out of chicken filo, out of calamari, out of steak - situated across the street from a very fine & well run...New World ???? that they can buy these items from if they are misjudging their ordering. Ordered Blue Cod - first time ever I've had it so poorly cooked. Batter was thick, and doughy. First time ever I've tasted burnt batter on one end at one end & couldn't taste the blue cod due to the burnt, at the other end it wasn't cooked right through....asked a staff member & he said that the owner was cooking.... it was overpriced for lunch.Spoke to another cafe owner & they said that the owner's ate "over it" & have been trying to sell for ages.....More

Always used to be my go to cafe for modern food etc in Ingill however the decor has become quite dated now and food was nice but very much suited to the elderly market who seemed to be the main clientele now. Good coffee.

Visited yesterday with two friends for lunch. The man behind the counter gave me our menus and I specifically asked him if we came to the counter to order our food and drink or if we were able to go and sit down and our...order would be taken. He said to go and sit down and we would have our order taken. 40 minutes later no one had come up to give us water, take our drinks order or take our food order. We were ignored by all staff so we walked out. Very disappointing.More
