    What has happened to Chez Dre? Desserts are gone. Waffles were soggy and tasteless Toast was served with minimal jam straight out of a jar. Not impressed

    Flavors were really good but the food was slightly cold. I wouldn't recommend the roast duck crepe. Filling is alright but the crepe is worst I ever had

    Pro tip - sit inside on days with even a slight breeze, or you, your food and your coffee will be covered in leaves and twigs from the neighbour's peppercorn tree

    Not that all their waiters are bad, but one needs to realize its a restaurant and not a fashion show runway. More service, less strutting.
