okay, so I know a lot of people complain about the service at Tilleys including here on Riot ACT god bless em… and my complainin’ will make no difference… it is a gold mine for the owners and they will always have a full house..I have spent many an hour/dollar there..
I met my bro for coffee in Tilleys, avec my 2 year old babe. I ordered the coffees and baby cino. A lovely lass making the coffees could see me struggling with bub and said ‘Don’t wait, we’ll bring the coffees out’. I gratefully accepted her kind offer as I toddler wrangled back outside holding the babycino. 15 minutes later the coffees were dumped (literally) on my table with a scowl and the comment ‘You do realise we don’t DO table service here. In FUTURE will you please wait for your coffees INSIDE’ as the said coffees were dumped on the table, milk sloshing over..I was dumbstruck at the rudeness of this waitress and simply replied George Costanza style that the kind girl inside had offered to bring them out..she abruply turned on here heal, sighing… and departed.. anyway..
10 minutes later the same waitress appeared and rudely asked me to move my stroller out of their way as the table servers were having trouble getting around it – needless to say my stroller wasn’t in the way unlike the 2 other strollers nearby whose owners weren’t asked to move them.. I failed, like George Constanza to reply that I understood from your earlier comments that there was no table service at Tilleys..
Anyway, I’m over it and getting my coffees from the Front where they serve better coffee with a smile – over it!
