I've always found this place quite mediocre at the best of times, and only ever went there because they have a sandpit for the kids and an outdoor area, especially as the inside decor is grubby, and as tasteless as a hippy's spare bedroom. I've been there a lot with the kids, it is handy because you can get your pram down the side without disturbing people. But the food was always basic with little imagination, and service seem to fall apart if you were eating outside. I cut back going there, only going if others wanted to meet there, because the sandpit was often dirty and never refilled, as well as too many sparrows crapping everywhere. What's stopped me going there forever was when calling past to drop in some foyers for a local event I'm involved with. I acknowledged him and told him I'd like to drop some flyers with the others that were on the counter. The guy says, sure, go ahead. And then some short woman I hadn't seen, presumably the owner, appeared from practically under the counter and started lecturing me on not saying hello to her and her staff. She seemed to enjoy being pratronising and relished be condescending to me. "come on - say hello, it's not that hard", completely jumping in on the interaction I'd already had with her staff member. When I confronted her about this and how rude she was she was unapologetic and smug. If people want to run cafes and promote them as hubs of the community they should be civil to members of that community, and that's all the time, not just when they're handing over handfuls of cash (and I've handed over hundreds over the years) for their otherwise bland food and service and use of their cat poo infested sandpit.
