I wnt here for a lunch sandwich - and chose one with some ham which looked really delicious. Unfortunately it didn't taste as good as it looked. The bread was hard and the ham was just avarage.

Was attracted by the window display of desserts. The chocolate eclair was good but the coffee was a let down especially knowing that it is the push button machine-type of coffee. They have price discrimination for take-aways and eating-in. They are visibly displayed on the...More
