We did a lap of the esplanade and chose this venue for brekky having arrived late the previous night and only in town for two nights my wife and I were looking to fuel up prior to packing a lot into a day of adventure, Eli the waiter was very friendly and gave us some tips on places to go and we commented on how good his nature was for a young waiter.
Upon ordering an omelette that contained mushrooms on the menu I made it very clear that I was very allergic and they said they could make it without, meals and coffees arrived and about 1/2 way through I was very upset to find a half eaten mushroom in my omelette- I flagged it with the waiter who said he had told the chef, upon further investigation Eli informed me that the chef had noticed too late and tried to remove the mushroom but must have missed some he ten laughed and said there are plenty of bushes on your bushwalks- this made me even angrier- they new they had made a mistake but tried to cover it up, this is unforgivable with allergies, they offered to give free coffees $8- this is poor to say the least considering I paid $16 for a meal that I ate half of and subsequently made me very ill.
Around 20mins later I was seriously ill and vomiting in our hotel room I was sick for the rest of the day and evening ruining our long planned first anniversary - UNFORGIVEABLE!!!
For the record I was really enjoying the omelette prior to the mushroom discovery
