Bad Experience

I finally made it to 'La Continental' for my English breakfast today.

Gone is the cheery warm interior and happy staff of 'Berties', to be replaced by dull and soulless plain walls and polite but perfunctory staff. 

I'm afraid the place just didn't do it for me - the pile of out of date newspapers on offer, the absence of sauces on the table, the music on too loud, the watery tinned tomato and an egg fried to the consistency of rubber all made for a very unappealing cafe experience.

If the vibrant and busy Berties couldn't make it work financially, then I worry greatly for the future of  La Continental. 

A few blog readers have commented favourably on the place, so hopefully I just caught them on an off day.
