  • The service on the other hand was disgraceful, and with so many other cafes on this street I will definitely be giving Berkelouw's a miss from now on
  • This had a very poorly attempted thin layer on top and tasted bitter which I know from working as a barista is from scalding the beans

      For all appearances this looks to be a nice cafe adjoined to the bookstore of the same name and a focus on outdoor seating.

      Since it is very conveniently located to the bus stop (that is only about ten meters walk) I recently decided to try out their coffee. I expected that they may be more expensive than more casual cafes, but the prices were around the average $4 that I expect to pay.

      The service on the other hand was disgraceful,


      and with so many other cafes on this street I will definitely be giving Berkelouw’s a miss from now on. It was quite windy with a bit of light rain so I waited for my coffee under the awning for about twenty minutes, which as far as I am concerned is far too long to be kept waiting for coffee. There is not very much room between tables and the seating and counter area and this is not a place that I ...

      • would like to be trying to have a meal or meet up with friends and be all crowded in with the other customers.

        While I was still waiting a group of three women came in and wanted to order. The young girl who was serving rudely turned to me and said “Wait outside” I guess since they already had my money I was no longer relevant eventhough I still didn’t have my coffee. To expect a customer to wait outside in the

        rain is the rudest service that I have ever had, even if she had been a little bit polite about it.

        The coffee when I got it was not worth the wait. If I order a cappuccino I expect it to have foam. This had a very poorly attempted thin layer on top and tasted bitter which I know from working as a barista is from scalding the beans. Anyone who knew (or cared) what they were doing would not serve this coffee.
