Rochester Park Cafe, Rochester House

Had brunch there on Sat morn with the Nairs, my aunt and Anya. Place is lovely with lots of greenery and food is decent. Service was not great but perhaps it’s because the people are all rather new and inexperienced. Menu was worded in such a way that made us think we were getting OJ and coffee or tea with our breakfast and the waitress even confirmed it but in the end they said it was OJ or coffee or tea. They also charged us for one coffee and one tea even though they were supposed to come free with the meal. Didn’t realise till I got home cos was quite distracted with Anya. Called them to ask about getting a refund and they said they’d call me back but didn’t. Guess it’s partly my fault for not checking properly! :(

They have a play area inside which is padded and seems to be quite well-equipped (similar to the kids room in Covenant EFC which I visited) but at $6 an hour and $6 for subsequent half hours, I would rather go to Polliwogs or somewhere else. I thought the whole point should be to make the play area free or charge a very minimal fee so that parents would choose to go there for brunch instead of say, Jones the Grocer or somewhere else. So overall it’s an ok place but I don’t know if I’ll be going back.
