After leaving multiple messages to make a booking and receiving a return call 45 minutes before the booking time two days after the first message was left should have been the first sign of what was to come. Burned over expressed coffee which took 35 minutes to arrive. Three requests for water for the table which took an hour and a half to eventuate and possibly one of the smallest, blandest most expensive "Big Breakfast" I've ever come across. To top it off the Vegetarian meal ordered by one of my companions came wrapped in bacon! Jam Packed is in a great location but let down by poor staff, nasty coffee, worse meals and the cutlery being dumped on the tables in recycled tin cans. Far better cafés and restaurants nearby.
2nd visit on week long holiday was disappointing. Piccolo was served in a latte glass but half full. Wt? Long black was very disappointingly watery with no sign of crema. Mmmm... wats going on in cafe attached to a 5 star establishment. The croissants were AMAZING. The food is tops, why not the coffee. Was the barista on day off or are they using a barista at all? Sydney and Melbourne guests demand better coffee!!!
