My wife, 3 yr old daughter and I sat down and had a late lunch here around 3pm. Our waitress was very nice, and so was a gentelman who assisted us a few times - assuming he was the manager on duty at the time.
Then after eating, my wife went shopping for a little bit, my 3 year old coloured and I had some beers while I waited for my wife to return. In that time, the staff changed over. Wow, what a contrast.
The new waitress kept hinting that we should leave without actually saying it, so I kept ordering beers, hoping that it would be sufficient to be a good customer holding a table. Its not like I'm a slow drinker either. And we kept getting dirty looks by an older woman who I figured was the new manager on the floor. Eventually I was asked to pay up, and free up the table. I paid up promptly (including nice tip). But then later explained my situation that I was waiting for my wife and she wouldn't know how to find us if we left, and that sitting at the bar was no good because it was too high for my daughter. The manager came over and she suggested we go next door to a cafe and leave a note at the bar for my wife. Ridiculous. I wanted to keep ordering drinks, and possibly snack food, but they didn't care. And how would my wife know to ask the bartender for a note?
I would have gladly left, but I was in a bit of a bind, and they didn't care whatsoever, despite the fact that I was a paying customer all afternoon. For a place that doesn't have anything more than $10 on the menu, I thought I was doing pretty good racking up a $70 bill in 3 hours, and I wanted to add to it.
I worked as a waiter for 10+ years, and *never* complain or get upset about service, but I was shocked they were so willing to boot me and 3 year old daughter out as we waited for her mom to arrive. How unbelievably petty and money hungry can you be? Not to mention, it was sub-zero (celcius) temperatures, so its not like we could just wait outside.
However, I know this place is right in the middle of a very busy tourist area, so they're business will never suffer because of this review. They simply don't care - and they don't have to. Shameful.
