Great location. Interesting tasty dishes of a good size & very reasonable. Service was fine. We sat outside in the winter sun. I took visitors from out of town & they were very impressed.
We were a group of 9 adults and 2 children. It was a beautiful sunny day, good service, tasty food and lovely outlook over the park and lake.
TGLC is in a very nice location, staff are attentive and best of all foos is yummy. I will definitely go back again and highly recommend this cafe to friends, family and colleagues!
