I can't believe how many people claim Trendz is one of the best cafes in langley with great food. Ridiculous.
Sorry but as far as the coffee goes, it's fairly good (although none of it is fair trade) but the food? Please. The wraps and baked goods in the display case are all just pre-packaged from costco, all of it is Kirkland, costco's brand. How do I know? I used to work at the Shell gas station, which happens to share a dumpster with Trendz. It's all pre-packaged crap, very little of it is made fresh.
The sandwiches which are actually made fresh, are poor and overpriced, unless you get them with a combo. I had the unfortunate expieriance of trying a sandwich that was supposed to be bacon, cheese, and tomato.(at a heafty price of 7.99)
The girl serving me took a good 20 minutes to make it as well, and there were only about 2 other customers in the place. I used to go in there fairly often, because it was close to my work, and I found all the girls to be slow, inefficient, and hired simply because of their looks. (I only ever saw one "ugly" looking girl working there and she managed to be more efficent and quick than all the others) so back to the sandwich. What I got was 2 pieces of pre-cooked bacon the girl had quickly microwaved, after they were heated she threw them on with the other ingredients and put the sandwich into the panini press. What I ended up with was 2 shriveled pieces of bacon with 2 thankfully good slices of tomato that were absolutely drowned in cheese. Greasy and disgusting.
Now, I guess it could be said that I am biased, basing all this off of one bad expierience, but every time I have gone in there, which is quite often, I am met with incredibly slow service.
Sorry but I work at a pizza place right now, where everything really is made FRESH - like we cut the veges and everything. And, during a 1 hour rush when we have 200 pizzas on the board and only 2 people working we still manage to pump out about a pizza every 8 minutes. So 20 minutes for a microwaved wrap, or pressed sandwich is kindof ridiculous when you have 4 girls working in the coffee place.
All well, at least they have their looks.
There slogan is "Come Meet Your Friends at Trendz" and it is true..the place is alwasy pact and has something for everyone.. Homemade Soups & Sandwiches, Excellent Breakfeast wraps and Bagels to Fresh Salads and Lunch Wraps. You also can just have a great piece of Pie or Dessert and top it all off with your choice of this awsome Ice cream from a local family dairy farm. Oh ya I forgot....dont forget the coffee, capaccinos and what everelse they are dreaming up for a drink that day....This place has an excellent ambiance and probably the friendliest and nicest staff.
