We went for soup. Very disappointing - not very hot, incredibly thick. But more worrying is hygiene standard. We watched waitress patting a dog, feeding it a treat directly into its mouth, and then NOT wash her hands. Not good.More

I visited JellyHill and it has lost its ambience and atmosphere under the new owners. I don't find the atmosphere friendly and the Italian Aroma coffee is bitter tasting. I find this place better avoided.More
