Really awful! The owner is rude and will come over and ask you to leave, or make your friends order more, if he feels you have been there for too long without ordering enough. I sat at a two person table and ordered lunch and two coffees over a period of 6 hours, but apparently that was not enough. I have also seen him ask other students to leave if he feels they have been at a table for too long. He will do this even if there is still plenty of space in the restaurant - it's truly bizarre and quite bullying. Really disgraceful customer service! The food is also mediocre and overpriced by Durham standards. Would really not recommend it, especially not to students trying to find somewhere to study! There are so many nicer independent coffee shops in Durham.
