Re: “Le Monde Bakery

Amazing bakery, with even better staff. My favorite for lunch is the spring rolls, my boyfriend LOVES the chicken curry soup. We meet for lunch at least once a month here!

Oh my goodness! You have to try their Black Walnut cake and the Cheesecake Cake! They serve delicious dinners on Wednesdays. You have to go.

Re: “Bloom Baking Company

TLDR version: Be cautious using debit or credit cards here. I recommend paying only with cash, especially if your transaction is under the minimum $10. Ask for a receipt and check it before you leave.

I was very disappointed with my experience at Bloom yesterday. They were quite busy, which is normal for a Saturday morning. I realized as I was in line that I didn't have any cash with me. I asked the gentleman behind the counter whether they take debit cards, and he responded affirmatively but did not mention that there is a $10 minimum card charge. I didn't discover this until I got to the register, prepared food in hand, and my total was only $8.36.

I quickly asked the woman working the register what else I could easily add to the transaction to get over the minimum amount. She told me not to worry about it and she ran my card. I really appreciated this and thought it was very nice of this small local company to give a customer a break in a pinch. I wasn't offered a receipt, but I figured it wasn't important and I didn't want to delay the long line any further, so I collected my purchases and left. I actually walked away thinking happily that this was a great example of the terrific service that small businesses are able to offer their customers.

Not so fast!

Today I logged in to balance my bank activity and realized that rather than giving me a break on being short of the minimum transaction amount, the employee at the register had simply added $2 to my total and charged me $10.36 for my items, without asking me if this was OK, or allowing me to quickly select something like a baguette to tip me over the minimum. It's only two dollars, I realize, which is far from a large amount, but in principle it's incredibly offensive to have been treated this way.

Eight dollars is pretty hefty for a croissant and small coffee to begin with. The two dollar involuntary tip makes the price more or less unconscionable.

I would like to give this business the benefit of a doubt and assume that their employees have not been specifically trained to do this, but regardless, I will certainly never return to Bloom on the basis of this experience. Their food, although dramatically overpriced, is excellent. But unless you're paying with cash I would be very wary of them.

Re: “Classic Cookie

It's the coziest, most charming place for breakfast or lunch! If you order lunch, you automatically receive a basket of the most delicious muffins & cookies. The place is popular, so we usually wait a bit for a table, but not too long -- and it's always worth it. Such a lovely place with the BEST home cookin'!

Re: “Dave's Bakery & Deli

I liked Dave's top; it was nice. I liked Dave's apron; it was clean. I liked Dave's breath; it was fresh. I liked Dave's face; although, it looked mean! I ordered from the top: I like the right price. I ordered with aplomb; I like to look keen! The waitress: coquettish? It wasn't me she'd seen [ :( ]. n' above all else (!), the prices were lien.

Re: “Le Monde Bakery

We are fortunate to work near Le Monde. While we enjoy the Chicken Curry Soup on a regular basis, we are both partial to the Seafood Bisque served on Tuesdays.

Re: “Vee's Sweets and Treats

I am a regular customer of Vee's and I am never disappointed. It does not matter if I am getting a sandwich, chicken noodle soup or a slice of cake!!!
When my daughter is sick, the only thing she wants is Vee's soup. Once you try anything, you will be back.

Re: “Vee's Sweets and Treats

Vee's is excellent for her baked goods. She and her staff are very friendly, very courteous, and very attentive. Her prices are more than reasonable, and they are always ready with helpful descriptions and suggestions.

Some day, hopefully soon, we will get there in time to sample her breakfast and lunch menu. If it is anything like her baked goods . . . it will be wonderful.

Re: “Le Monde Bakery

One of the best bakeries I've ever been to. I travel over 2 hours to sample the goods. Croissants are perfect...flaky, buttery, just plain great. I've samples the sandwiches also, they too are very good. Well worth the trip.

Re: “Jay Wale's Bakery-Bistro

After being assured that the perfectly beautiful sugar cookies were made in-house, I tried to eat the most beautiful, worst cookie that I have ever eaten. THE COOKIES ARE NOT MADE IN-HOUSE AND ARE HORRID. I WILL NEVER GO THERE AGAIN...IF THEY LIE ABOUT THE COOKIES...JUST HAVE TO WONDER ABOUT THE REST OF THEIR FOOD.

Re: “Jay Wale's Bakery-Bistro

THE FOOD IS FRESH AND LIGHT AND NEVER LEAVES YOU FEELING LIKE YOU NEED TO HIT THE GYM:) FAVORITE WOULD HAVE TO BE THE BELLA PORTABELLA AND CHICKEN ARTICHOKE. THE WORKERS ARE SUPER FRIENDLY AND THE ATMOSPHERE IS PERFECT FOR A QUIET LITTLE LUNCH. *MUST TRY THE RED VELVET CAKE TOO
