From the Burpple community

Service was BAD!!! We requested to change tables after a couple finished dining and one of the staff said “let me check and get back to you” but she failed to return with an answer. We waited for quite a while and my boyfriend walked to find her and asked whether it is alright to change seats (FYI, she wasn’t busy. She apparently forgot about our request). At the same time, a server served me our food and I said “hi, we actually asked your colleague if we can change our seats but she did not give us an answer for a while. So can I check if it’s possible?”

This particular server said “sorry you can’t change it because it is for a customer that is waitlisted and she knows where she’s sitting at so we cannot let you take her table.”

At the same time, the girl who we asked if we can change seats came and said “hi, I can swop the table for you!”

My question is: I was a waitlisted customer too. Why was I not informed which table you have supposedly reserved for me but you claim that another waitlister knows of the table she’s assigned to????

Next, why does it sound like I’m being adamant to change my table when it is a service that I am paying for? We even made the effort to walk and check on the request but why did you have to deny our request Abd claim that the wait lister is going to sit at an empty table? This really ruined my experience here and I do not enjoy this kind of customer service where I constantly have to ASK/ WORK for my request.

If you claim that the table was assigned to a waitlister and she knows that she’s sitting there then why was I not given a choice to choose my table/ not aware of the table I’m assigned to? Next, if you claim that it is already assigned to someone who allegedly knows that she’s sitting at this specific table then why are you ok to swop in the end? And why are 2 direct servers saying contradictory things? If you’re unaware then shouldn’t you clarify with your colleague who was in charge of the tables rather than claiming that I cannot change tables???????

Not worth the service fee paid!!! Do not recommend despite waiting for 45 minutes for a table that I was “supposed” to know of (AKA assigned).

Food review:
Salmon is overly salty and tastes weird.

4⭐ As we reached around 9.30am, we didn't have to wait for a table. I ordered the academics breakfast and chose the scrambled egg which comes with truffle. 😍 WB had the burger since he's not a western breakfast lover. The burger is juicy and good as the meat does not have the gamey smell.

(8/10) Relatively quiet and relaxing corner for a cafe located in town. Went there on a weekend and manage to get a seat without reservation 👍🏼 many were there for tea-break, I think. Food portion was good but on the pricey end.

Ordered food:
Academic’s Breakfast (Yummy with burpple 1-1 bfast deal)
Salmon and Hash (like rosti + salmon, worth a try!)
Umami Sweet potato fries (crispy and not oily, but umami sauce was a little funky)
Jasmine and chia seed tea (interesting and refreshing twist)

we got the crispy fish tacos and 3-meat pizza! the tacos had mango salsa which is ok but our mangos were a little sour. would’ve preferred if the shell was soggier too. the tacos alone weren’t rly filling bc the fish pieces r so small but if u eat with the fries and veggies it should be enough. the fries are goooood!! crispy n warm. the pizza was not bad too- v flavourful with the different meats + the cheese had a deep richness to it which wasn’t too overwhelming either

The pancakes are as fluffy as they look. Soft and eggy, they pair really well with the lemon maple syrup, homemade berry compote and fresh whipped cream. The only complaint we have is that there needs to be more of the berry compote and whipped cream. They were gone before we were starting on the third piece! Priced at $19.50, this is part of their all day breakfast menu but we think that this can be a dessert as well. Recommend to share this with another as it can get quite filling after a while.
