This is a nice little cafe catering for meals, and also those just wanting coffee and cake. The service is good, and always seems well populated whenever I have been in.

We have checked with our front of house staff which we have two, that are the best in the business,and they have no knowledge of your visit or complaint. since you were not a diner your complaint is not worthy of further comment.
