Thank you for your review. Our scones are usually lovely and I'm sorry that you weren't happy with them. We are always happy to replace any menu item that isn't as it should be. My apologies. In regards to the hot chocolates. I am very pleased that you enjoyed them and would like to comment that our hot chocolates are not made with powder but solid Lindt mini blocks of chocolate and sprinkled on top with organic fairtrade premium chocolate. Either way you enjoyed them so that's great. If you'd like to pop back in I'd be more than happy to offer you a serving of scones and make it up to you, for your less than satisfactory serving today. Just let me know when you come in. ThanksFlag as suspect or inappropriate
thank you for your response and I will take up the offer. I wanted to say though that I am aware of the hot chocolate being made with Lindt chocolate and we opted to have our chocolates made with chocolate powder instead (as offered to us by your staff).Flag as suspect or inappropriate
and I love the milkshakes as well :)
The restaurant is open most saturday nights, but book ahead to make sure.
The atmosphere is super cosy, with fairy lights and decorations around the room.
service could do with improvement though. They seem a little too laid back. the staff were very nice and friendly and easy to talk to but in the service sense they weren't as warm and inviting. Prices are also a little high I think. Beautiful freshly made food though. i'd be happy to come again.
When dining here If you sit near the window you can observe the cockatoos,rosellas that frequent around the establishment.
I was hungry and by the time the first incorrect order came, I was over it. We all felt that we had been waiting too long and it wasn't as if it was really busy. We had our day to get on with and what started as a quick bite to eat, became drawn out. We spent over an hour getting lunch, which was a pide bread with filling! Now how hard can that be. It had been my suggestion to come to the tea-rooms rather than the Kallista Deli and I was left to feel that I'd chosen wrongly.
I was rather miffed with the waitress who seemed more interested in her bad jokes (the food was 'sun-baking' and it seemed that she would have preferred to be away from the cafe sun-baking too) than in excellent customer service.
