On the other hand, my cappucino was indeed cool, as were the pancakes; in fact, they were cold ... clearly pre-made which is fine, but they should be warmed up before serving. The waitress's reaction? "Oh really?" Come on guys; you can do better.

A very busy place that serves light meals, cakes and fantastic icecream. Quite a variety of drinks, food, dessert and cakes. Open from 9 to 9 daily.

+ve: Staff are friendly and helpful; it's located in a cosy part of the mall, between the escalators. Strawberry milkshake was good but very very sweet... even for a strawberry milkshake. Fries are really good. Worth coming just for those! -ve: Orange and Carrot juice had a strange taste and wasn't refreshing. Strawberry fruit smoothie was bland and watery. Chicken... More

There is absolutely nothing I can say wrong about this restaurant. We were welcomed by friendly staff, got fast and efficient service even though the restaurant was full. The food was beautifully presented and tasted fabulous. I highly recommend them and will be a regular customer in future.

The food is exquisite and there are a wide range of options for both food and dessert. The cocktails are impressive, as well as their range of fresh smoothies and lemonade. The gelato and sorbets are delicious.

I always find the service excellent and the food very good. They have a smoking section as well, which is an oasis in the mall where they are located.

Nestled under an escalator in Canal Walk shopping centre, the place can be a little cramped and seats not exactly the most comfortable. They have a side smoking room corner and equipped for babies as well, though the lack of space makes you dread dealing with kids there. Prices are mid range but I would not call it value for...

Nice selection of drinks and treats. Cake display looks awesome and the ice-cream tempting. A smoking section is what attracted me.
