1. Is there anything they can’t do..?! Caffe Parigi also has free WiFi and conveniently-located plug points under the couchy-seating area for your ‘pooter’s charger.

    Love it!

  2. And now I discover that (having ordered a hot drink for once) they serve their teas and coffees in lovely hot cups and saucers. None of this tea-gone-cold nonsense, even when seated outside.

    : )

  3. One problem with this place, and which doesn’t seem to be a teething problem, is that if you’re not a pretty girl or a man, don’t expect any service from the male members of staff.


  4. Am I actually going to have to *get up* and pay my bill? Ugh.. Caffé Parigi loses a billion bonus points from me this pm for sheer ignorance.

    Well, to be honest, I’m torn between getting up and paying, and just walking out.

    I’m still here. Having been ignored for 30 minutes (and only eventually served after ordering when asking another staff member the whereabouts of my order) and since around 3pm for my bill.


    Ignore everything I’ve said in my post above. It’s not worth it.

  5. Oh the joy, I’ve finally been looked at long enough to request the bill. Gestures only, though. It’s not like the muppet would actually approach the table and speak to me face to face. Jesus.

    Let’s see how long it takes to arrive.

    Just to add… as you mentioned no breakfast choice! When one is killing time in the general area for a work reason, and you are in need of light but tasty, then try the Italian Toast and nice cwafee! Crusty and toasted ciabata, drizzled with lashings with Olive Oil (Extra virgin no doubt) then sprinked with crushed rock salt and black pepper! One must be careful not to bite ones fingers! and the coffee and toast came to about 3 euro!
    I must agree with the author re the slightly tardy service … however being one of the aforementioned males who get served … I have not experienced anything near  as annoying! I overlooked it … but again I am biased …as the aforementioned Italian staff … can be pleasing on the eye, so any excuse to wait .. well I kinda took it in my stride! :)

  7. lol – Well, I’m sure if there was some pleasant scenery it wouldn’t have been too bad for you, so!

    You are right about the “breakfast” options – not entirely breakfasty in the familiar sense, but they are tasty, as I recall.  In fact, I do miss the food in Parigi. And the good prices!

    But I’m sticking to my guns – the boycott continues!
    : )

    We were so thrilled with your original review of Caffe Parigi in 2009 and I am sitting here horrified to have found this blog and heard about your really poor service. Sorry it has taken me a year but I didn’t know that this blog existed!! I really hope that we can show you that we have improved. Are we still being boycotted? Any chance I can tempt you back with the offer of lunch and to hear any other feedback you might have.
