“Nice and busy”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 weeks ago

Came on a very busy Saturday, we had to wait a little while for our table - usually a good sign!
Staff are really friendly and accommodating. Coffee is BEAUTIFUL, the food was fairly good, but got hard boiled eggs with our Eggs Benedicts, but we were too hungry after the wait to return them.
Slight problem with the bill at the end also, but once brought to their attention, managed to finally get it sorted out. It was nice, need to give it another try though.

“Kicking over the bucket of milk”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 February 2017 via mobile

Food very good. Staff more than friendly maybe because every time I go in there, most have been replaced. So what's with the two star review? After being loved bombed by the waiting staff from the moment you come in, also checking on you " can I get you anything else, is everything okay" which is very nice no complaints what so ever. But, when you reply after the third approach by the said caring staff that yes," I would like some more tea please". This met with the same enthusiasm to oblige. This can take two forms. The small one person tea pot is taken away and filled with hot water using the same tea bag. Or, you do get a fresh tea bag but you are charged for a second tea on your bill. If you are eating as I was ,a full Irish breakfast this screams of petty meanness. Stop this stupid policy as it destroys all the good work done by the staff up to that point. There is an old adage." You are like the the cow that gives the most milk, then kicks over the bucket".

“Great Menu, tasty food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 February 2017

I eat here a lot. The food is always yummy and menu has lots of choice, everything from a light snack to a full meal. The cakes and coffee are lovely. The staff are always friendly, however as it can be extremely busy you may have to wait to get your order taken or plates cleared. No biggie as the food comes quickly but can be annoying if you're craving cake after your meal and run out of time for lunch! All in all, Gourmet Tart is lovely and definitely a regular place for breakfast & lunch for all tastes (I'm pretty sure they do dinner on some evenings which I will have to try)!
