Good food, but be prepared to wait for it

Advantages: Food is good quality
Disadvantages: Waiting time, moody staff
I have only been to the cafe in my local Sainsburys a couple of times and I don't think I would go there again.
The food is pretty good, they have a lot of different meal options and they are all relatively cheap, the last time I was there I had fish, chips and peas, and for £5.00 it was excellent quality. They also do a lot of jacket potatoes and sandwiches.
The only real issue I have with this cafe is the time it takes to get your food. I went with my Dad and it wasn't very busy but it still took a good 20 minutes to get our meal. I know it takes a while to cook food, and I wouldn't expect it instantly but I think 20 mins is a bit too long. It might just be me, and I don't know if this is the same in all other Sainsbury's cafe's but for a supermarket where everything else is great the cafe is a real let down.
Also the staff were so miserable. I don't expect much of the staff, but the lady on the till was so moody, she just grunted at us, so I found that a bit irritating.
It's such a shame about the service in general, as the food is actually quite good, but the waiting time and the miserable staff really let it down, and I wont be going to the cafe again.
Summary: Really disappointing experience.
