It was odd that my burger was raw but hey, who wouldn't love an odd ecoli experience? The management and waiters made an odd appearance out of the shadows now and then and even then, oddly, did not bother to bring menus. For that pleasure I paid a small fortune for a glass of wine.

THEN, only when they bring the bill do they bother to tell you the card machine is out of order. Odd? Yes, although that is not the word that springs to mind. Undaunted by their oddity the waitress then frog marches you to the nearest 'ATM' as if you are a prisoner ready to run away from the oddness of their 'odd' food and service. The so-called 'ATM' turns out to be a teller branch which I found was ... Odd, but I live to wait in long bank queues because the Odd Cafe couldn't bother to let anyone know of their lack of service.

Everything was oDD ... Although that would not be my choice description of the bad service and food.

Odd Cafe is under new management with great plans. Their menu entitled "this is awkward" is simple, yet has some great meals. Look forward to seeing a new revamped experience in the new year.

The cafe was not the kind of place I would normally visit - more suited to the more student/trendy generation of my kids, but the cheesecake is amazing.

Great place! I love the decor. Good food! I recommend the leaning tower of odd, it's delicious! Great service. Relaxed, chilled out vibe. Really great place to hang out with friends for lunch.
