I was a little disappointed today.
We were visiting the VUE cinema at Cribbs Causeway, to see a film. I thought I would like a coffee, and I could see the Lavazza brand, so I asked if they could do me a flat white? They said yes.
However as I watched them make it I was not impressed.
They did the espresso coffee and then topped it off with hot water and finished with some cold milk.
Sorry that’s not a flat white!
I did reject it and they tried again., this time they managed with a little guidance from me, get it right.
I did actually quite enjoy the coffee, however if I hadn’t watched them make it I would have been very disappointed. The fact it was quite expensive at £3.49, would have made me even more disappointed if I didn’t get what I ordered and paid for.
I shouldn’t be too surprised, I am always a bit wary of cinema food and drink. It’s usually overpriced and often not very good.
Next time, have coffee before I get to the cinema.
