This was a 'never again' experience, and those rarely happen for us. Lunch on 13 November 2010 hopefully will be forgotten.

The grilled cheese for my boys was downright painful! Not only was it a very small sandwich, without chips or fries, the bread was so rough that it hurt my boys' mouths. They gave it a valiant attempt but simply could not endure the torture. Waterboarding may have been an improvement.

My lamb platter (not the lunch but the platter) was notably skimpy. They forgot to bring out the pitta, which had been listed on the menu. When reminded, they did provide it...on a cup-saucer, sliced into four minuscule triangles. The lamb was tasty, the fries were lukewarm, the lettuce unimaginative. Our 11-year-old daughter would have found the meal unsatisfying.

It appeared there was some redeeming value to it when I was informed that my meal brought with it a 'free' dessert. We decided on the brownies, supposing they could be divided between the three of us. There were four smallish, mini-cupcake-like 'brownies'. They were cold, not chilled, and seemed stale. Our boys like dessert, quite naturally, but even they voted to leave the fourth 'brownie' on the plate.

The only redeeming facet of the experiences was our company: ourselves! The two waitresses were friendly but extraordinarily unprofessional. The owner(?)/cook was vaguely unattractive. The 'caf' was not horribly dirty.

Take the photos of the food deceptively decorating the front windows, decrease the quantity and diminish the quality, color it unprofessional and quasi-friendly, and you'll have a dislikable and hopefully forgettable experience. You'll have 'The Never Again Caf'.

I went to this place for dinner and was not satisfied with the food. It was not authentic food but was not even testy. I would not go to this place again.
