I have been a regular here for the past three years and Tapastree will never let you down. Francis and staff are amazing. Good hires Nicole! The food is consistently excellent. Best ahi tuna in the city. Value for money - right on the mark. The ambience is fantastic especially on a summer night. Patio doors open. Martinis flowing. What better way to spend a night.

I have been a patron of Delaneys on Denman off and on since it opened. More on in the early years due to the exceptional staff at that time. Today a friend and I decided to go there. She has been more consistently on as a patron over the years. We walked up to the counter and the guy with the mohawk just stood there. Never said hello, morning nothing! When I asked my friend what she wanted she told me to go first. I placed my coffee order and when I asked for a muffin I got the burst of air from the mohawk. You know the .....haaaaaa! Gawd you two are a pain. Made this big production out of getting the muffin, got my name and stuck it up where they make the coffees. Now it was obvious that the two of us were on one bill. So, my friend who had been watching all his actions then decided she wasnt wasting her money in this cafe......told him.....no reaction....he just rang in mine.....took my money and put the change on the counter......no thank you, kiss my ass nothing......just went on to the next customer......So I got my drink and asked for the manager. Bertram came along. And told him the story. At first, I wasnt overly impressed with his response. "oh people just think he's super gay"! When did being a bitchy fag/ super gay become an excuse for giving poor service? Being a gay man, just because a company supports the gay community doesnt mean they can take for granted my $$. We also expressed the fact that we arent visitors, that we are long time west end residents and that when times are slow in the winter....its the residents who keep him employed. I would much rather support independents than the "S" of the coffee world but with poor service like that I will take my $$ elsewhere.....and so should everyone who has been subject to the mohawk BS!
