I suspect the new owner hasn't run a cafe before. which is a shame, because this used to be good. Previous front of house staff told me he sacked them all. On my first visit under new ownership one person, I took him to be the new owner, was alone in front and struggled. More than 10 mins to bring... More

I have been a regular visitor to this café and know it has been recently taken over. I do understand there can be teething problems. Went in one day recently and realised a change in the atmosphere. The waitress continued the conversation with a friend while I waited to be served. The table I wished to sit at the window... More

Cleanliness of our tables and prompt service are some of our key aims. We normally achieve both but are sorry you feel this was not the case on... More

Visited with my girlfriend for some brunch and a coffee on a bank holiday so the cafe was reasonably busy. There was only one member of staff working and apparently a new manager didn't turn up on their first day. This meant the waitress was running around after everyone in the cafe, waited a long time for our food -... More

Thank you for taking the time to leave your comments. You were unfortunate that we were unexpectedly short staffed on the day you visited. We normally have extra staff on for the weekends and bank holidays. We are glad to hear you found your waitress friendly and that she reduced your bill because of your inconvenience. We do have plans... More

Nice friendly atmosphere, the coffee was amazingly good. I was recommended the large 'hobknob' and was not disappointed, it was amazing. Certainly go back.

Visited last week for lunch and was shocked at the dirt of the whole place. Went to the toilet and you can see in to the edge of the kitchen, the floor was filthy. Tables weren't cleaned and the service area was manky. Fronts of fridges were filthy, service table covered in crumbs and the mornings milk delivery was still... More

Visited with my friend for lunch last week. Staff friendly and courteous remembering me and service impeccable. The food is fantastic, fresh and tasty and every single member of staff is hardworking and attentive. I wouldn't go anywhere else and would strongly recommend a visit.

One thing we're not short of in Shawlands is coffee shops but Biscuit is certainly ahead of the rest. The coffee is great, service very friendly and the bacon rolls are the best in the World. Highly recommended!
