The cafe was busy today, nobody came to greet us even though a few of the waitresses walked pass me. I had to stop one of them to tell us where to sit. After we got seated nobody gave us any menu. I had to go to the counter to ask for menus. After we ordered the food, we waited for more than 45mins and saw other tables who got seated after us got their food but not us. When we asked the same waitress to check our order, she realized she forgot to put through our order. We had to wait for another 10-15Mins for our food. The food was good. We thought our bad luck stopped there but we were wrong. When we went to pay, the bill was more than what we expected to pay. We realized there were four coffees that got charged to our table by mistake. You can tell I'm not going back again.
The staff here are very friendly and the owner is absolutely fantastic. I highly recommend the strawberry pancakes, although they used to be better when they came with whipped cream cheese in my opinion, but still delicious. Reasonably-priced too, but a bit dark inside, would be nice if they had more outdoor seating.
The food is OK, but waiting staff are not very friendly. In my last visit, my friend and I had a main and a entré served as a main (we were in a hurry for a play starting at 7pm). The cafe offered a "buy 1 get 1 free main course" deal in the entertainment book but the cafe refused to honour that deal then, saying we didn't order 2 mains, even though the entertainment book rules of use clearly state that "If two main courses are not ordered, the least expensive item(s) ordered as a main course will be deducted." Not impressed. Will never want to return.
Love Plum cafe, I love the ambiance, I love the food, I love the service Its all soo good, price isn't bad either.
Being completely honest I haven't tried that many items off the menu, okay, I've had one. The Kumera Hash Stack, but that's only because its just so deliciously good. I've been here a fair few times, and I've thought about being slightly more adventurous but because its just that good i cant bring myself to try anything else. In saying that I've dined here with my partner and brother who have had other meals such as your standard bacon Eggs Benedict and the Decadent Buttermilk Pancakes, both of which they have been rather impressed with
I could only find one downside which was the coffee, I didn't enjoy it, but that would have come down to the barista making it. I've never been brave enough to try it again though.
