I used to love this place, I went relatively regularly (probably more than once a month for the past two years), but recently it's really gone to the dogs.
Something has gone wrong, which is a real shame.
My last three visits:
1. The cable of the on-table toaster started sparking, and fizzing, hissing, covering my clothes with electrical sparks. the waiter didn't notice, and when I mentioned it (a little shaken up) he didn't apologise and acted as if it was nothing
2. I presume the owner/manager could be overheard having a loud and aggressive phone call with a supplier, it was really off putting to hear such aggression and near shouting-volume while I'm eating my breakfast
3. The most recent time, the butter was distinctly sour and smelled cheesy, I presume it was off
I am applying a 'three strikes and your out' policy, so won't be visiting again, which is a real shame as I used to love popping over there, either alone or with friends, for lovely fresh sourdough toast and a cup of coffee.
