“Impressively inefficient service”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 8, 2011

We ate here on a Sunday. The service was exceptionally slow and inefficient, given that there were few diners. We had an oatmeal packet for our son's breakfast and his hot water, while cheerfully offered, was not brought to us until my husband and I were half-way through our omlettes, despite numerous reminders. Brown sugar (also cheerfully offered) did not arrive until he was almost done with his oatmeal, and it looked like it was scraped together from a very old sugar bowl. There were wasps crawling about in the light fixtures of the otherwise clean restroom. The entire place looked as if no one cared about it, and if a Denny's opened up near-by, they would be out of business quickly.
