This man sent his children in the cafe to order, we were not aware how many people they were ordering for, they got the order completey wronge, which ment they had to wait. You can tell by the way this complaint was written has to what kind of person this is, read other reviews to get a balance. This mans was the same at the table I had to ask him to leave. This man also said he wrote for the metro I think the editor of that publication should keep an eye on this venomous person
