“Excellent food and concept - but not so clean or friendly”
Reviewed April 6, 2009

Wonderful food, excellent quality and the decor is creative, comfortable, shabby chic and it works very well. But for all the lofty goals attained, these folks have slipped on some basics like cleanliness and friendliness.

We found the waitress unfriendly bordering on rude. We arrived mid-afternoon and there were many tables that had been cleared but not cleaned, presumably from the lunch hour. The waitress spend a great deal of the time sitting around, looking out the window and ignoring the customers. We had to ask to have our table cleaned, it was done, but none of the other dirty tables nearby were wiped. Wait staff just passed right by them and seemed not to notice the bits of food on the tables.

We ordered several courses and the food was splendid. However, the wait staff did not clear the dishes from the previous course when bringing out more food. We finally started stacking our own dishes to make enough room to eat comfortably. There were few other patrons at the time, so it wasn't because they were busy.

We love to support local businesses that serve healthy food and fair trade coffee, but really, is it too much to ask for a clean table and a little service?
