I have been going to this donut and bake shop infrequently over the years. Their baked goods are excellent; especially, the lobster tails and the coconut donuts. However, in my last three visits, something strange is going on. When paying for my order, I feel like I am playing three card monte. The first incident is when I handed them a $20. There was a delay in cashing it out, since they lacked the necessary $1 bills. After moving around between two registers, they made change, but the attitude of the counter help during the process was not friendly. The second incident, I presented them with a credit card. My $9.40 purchased was entered into the credit card approval for $34.90. They would not process the credit, but gave me the cash difference. The most recent incident involved cash again. After my recent credit card experience, I decided it would be better to use cash. A mistake. After ringing up the order, they again played with the cash between and envelope near the register and the second register. Once they had my change of $11.10 they gave me $11. No big deal right. What's a dime. Beyond the principle, just image over the course of a week with hundreds of customers, what this could total. Bottom line, the food is good, but watch your change. It had left and uncomfortable feeling and I will not longer frequent this local merchant. I like to support local business, but this will be definitely an exception to my rule.
