Brick Alley Café review Rate it

Only the name has changed at this delightful café (formerly the Joy of Coffee), which will come as a relief to its many loyal fans. Small and often crowded, the Brick Alley seats are still a little on the bum-numbing side but a tasty menu and the seriously excellent coffee more than make up for it. The food (which the owner describes as 'traditional', meaning lots of sarnies, and a few specials like Irish stew or lasagne) is good and filling.

Ive just wasted 20min of my like in this cafe,I taught the guy behind the counter whom I'd given my order to was goin to get me and my families drinks,return and maybe we could order some food.No he just kept chattin to his blonde co-worker swapping facebook details or whatever and forgot,so 20mins later despite his offer to do it right away we left,we won't be back.With this kind of slack jawed incompetence he could get a job in a bank.
