* A little while ago, an email arrived in my inbox; I was asked to review the CAKE app. Being a foodie, I said yes! What follows is my honest opinion.
I guess I should have planned better in the end; Southern had delayed various trains, meaning I got on the wrong one, and was nearly half an hour/forty five minutes late for my lunch reservation..
Hallys is a small restaurant-not a cafe or a bar-situated in what is a fairly busy part of London; there isn’t a lot of cars, etc-not being near a main road as such, or central London-but there are quite a lot of people. Armed with ,y trusty iPHONE and the CAKE app downloaded and open, I was ready for lunch.
What I really like about the Cake app is the design as well as its branding; the logo is everywhere, the purple stands out.. It is also really easy to navigate. Virtually everything is within a ‘distance’ of, say, two clicks. And the photography is so ascetically pleasing! I also really like that the app is seemingly more personal in terms of its interface; there’s recommendations, need-to-knows, and more. Fab!
The app in use:
As soon as you said how you wished to pay, the staff immediately knew what you were trying to do; which was awesome! As soon as you reach your location-and reservations can be taken via the app-you open the tab, they key in the balance, and you pay either by the card that’s connected, or credit you’ve earned back to again spend at these restaurants.
This was a fabulous place to eat, and I would definitely come again; the food was quick to come, well cooked, tasty. Couldn’t fault it really. (Maybe just a bit busy at points-but with the Holiday, it will be.) This burger was MASSIVE ; consequently, I felt almost like a snake, having to unhinge my jaw. There could have maybe have been a little less spice in its sauce-as there was a lot of it.
Cake is an app that every Londoner should have; I also really like how it has more of a ‘human’ face to it, rather than the complexity of other apps. I also really enjoyed my meal out; after having a bit of a meltdown, it felt so good to be stuffed to the brim. For improvements, it could have a ‘By landmark’ section; so, if you’re visiting a tourist attraction, you can see where to go. This app also needs to be expanded to fit all of the UK; I’m gutted I can’t use it where I live!
