Shout out to the team especially Chef Josh & Katie! Great new and refreshing vibe in the cafe The team and I will be back!
Great poached eggs and coffee. Friendly service too
The first time I visited this cafe we had a great experience. Nice coffee, great food and the staff were attentive. I do a huge amount of client meetings in Geelong, spending an insane amount of money over the month and wanted to find a great place to use for these meetings. I was hoping I had found it, but yesterday on my second visit I realised how wrong I had been.I arrived for a client meeting and ordered coffee. As I wondered over to the table, I noticed a strong smell of stale cigarettes which seemed to be coming from the man seated on the next table. I guess you can't choose who sits next to you in a cafe, but we later found out this man was the owner of the cafe and I feel it gave a really bad impression of his business!My colleague mentioned to me that her coffee was not warm enough and after trying to drink it said she needed to get it heated more as it was undrinkable. She tried several times to get the waitresses attention but failed even though the cafe was virtually empty. In the end she said she would go up to the counter and get the coffee warmed up. When she got back, she joked that she hoped they didn't spit in it (we have all seen those nightmare programs when staff do this kind of thing) But she was joking, and we had a little giggle. The next thing we knew, the man sitting next to us got really angry and stated he was the owner.My point in this was that if he was the owner, then why did he not offer to help warm her coffee to begin with, to avoid all of this and offer good customer service, when he could clearly see his staff were ignoring my colleague. Instead he only spoke up when she made a little joke! And he was very aggressive we were all totally shocked!She said to the owner that she was only joking, and he was incredibly rude to her.Scenario one: My friend mentions to me her coffee is not warm enough. The owner could have spoken up then and rectified the manner. This would have meant we wrote a positive review and continued spending regular money in his cafe and recommending the place to all our clients, friends and family.Scenario Two: The owner didn't help and only spoke up when she made a little joke and got incredibly aggressive. This obviously means we write a negative review and tell all our clients, friends and family this story!Make your own mind up about this cafe...Do you want a nice coffee in nice surroundings with attentive staff. Or do you want to go to Southside Café, Packington Street, Geelong and take a chance that you could be drinking luke warm coffee, sitting next to a stale cigarette smell while taking abuse from the owner when he listens in to your private conversations but does nothing to help!
