We went to Stone Soup for breakfast a few weeks ago. Found the restaurant had an odd atmosphere but the food was good so we came away with a smile. This morning we decided to give it another try.
The parking lot was mobbed. We walked in to find that mob of people all standing around awkwardly near the door. Apparently they are renovating. So far they have only concerned themselves with extending the bar to take over half of one side of the this restaurant! There were a few randomly placed tables in that area. No place for people to wait, so they are looking at people who were sitting/eating at these random tables.
The bus staff was clearly not keeping up. Several empty/dirty tables throughout the restaurant while we waited. It was a frustrating wait! Basically hard to watch the staff flounder.
Once seated, our waitress was quick and efficient. Too bad the food didn't stand up to the test. Second visit, ordered the same things and they were anything but the same. French toast tasted like a dirty grill. Overly salted homefries. Grilled Italian bread instead of toasting? Who does that? They ruined a perfectly good slice of bread.
Funny thing was, we never saw our waitress from the time we ordered until we had to ask for her because there were things on our bill we didn't order or receive! Then she seemed offended when I asked if they had a new cook!
This was a 3 strike visit. We won't go back.
