Walked inside. The place was less than half full. It was a weekend lunchtime and nice day. More customers were sitting outside. Waitress was prompt and provided the menu. My friends and I ordered. We waited and waited and waited... waited approx 30 MINUTES for our meals. Unacceptable!! The lamb open souvlaki (they call it a 12hr lamb?.. huh?) was... More

We ordered afternoon coffee and asked if there was freshly squeezed juice. The male Manager said 'yes'. I ordered one (without ice). When it was delivered (with ice), he then advised that it was prepared at their head office in Altona, hourly, and delivered in 15 minutes. I rejected it as it was not freshly squeezed and we left. I... More

The barista at breakfast this am was rude and when asked a reasonable request this am for our coffees to be poured into takeaway containers instead of mugs - she told us... More

Wouldn't waste your time or money. Terrible customer service, it felt like the staff were all still hungover and didn't want to be serving anyone. Only good thing about cafe was the location on Bay Street

Creme recently renovated and had a make over unfortunately their wait time for coffee or the quality of their food didn't get a makeover as well. There are better choices along Bay St.

It's very similar to the Creme in Altona, the coffee is pretty average. Food is good but would prefer some more selections.

The place has recently been refitted and looks fabulous, and the menu is fresh with some good healthy options like protein pancakes etc. When we were seated the table had not been cleared - which didn't matter to start but then we didn't get menus, we had to keep getting the eye of the staff and asking, can we get...

It was a horrible experience. Despite being very regular to this place as I live across the street, the south Asian looking lady was very rude with me today. Usually the serving staff are ok, but this lady in particular has no mannerisms and I suggest she needs to learn more about customer service and how she needs to speak... More
