Good food but owner is a B----
Submitted Friday, March 13, 2009 - 4:19pm [Dine in]

The food is good, and for the most part the service is good as well. I love LOVE the chocolate Babkas and the girls who make my bagels with the smoked salmon schmear always do a perfect job, and with a smile at that. I live in the neighborhood and a few months ago I witnessed the owner berating and talking down to her employees. She was barking orders from the other side of the counter with her day planner and cell phone in hand, bitching and asking why they were doing this or that, and being nasty all in front of a long line of customers. Firstly, I am sure her employees were just doing what the manager asked, secondly if you think that the employees are rude, this is why. I can't say I will never go here again, but the owner is just SO nasty to her employees and I don't really want to support that. What has prompted my review is the same exact thing happened to a friend of mine, today, at the same location.

Cafe Medina780 Richards St, Vancouver
Great food, awesome London Fog!
Submitted Sunday, February 22, 2009 - 9:40am [Dine in]

I went here for the first time last weekend and ordered one of the baked egg dishes, without knowing it was going to be similar to a quiche, which I hate. Turns out that it was really good and I really liked it. The service was very attentive and friendly. We had a crappy spot by a door that people were going in and out of, but it wasn't too much of a nuisance. I also ordered a London Fog, which wasn't on the menu, and it was amazing! I think they may have used an actual Vanilla pod to make it. I'd come back just for those...

Budgies Burritos44 Kingsway, Vancouver
I LOVE Budgies, but now only pay with exact change.
Submitted Sunday, February 22, 2009 - 9:35am [Dine in]

I love love love budgies, I go there on a weekly basis. The food is always great, albeit there's a stray hair in my food every once in a while, but I do still come back. I was reading some reviews below about how they give back incorrect change. I went there again last week and paid for my $6 meal with a $20, I got home thinking that I had $14 in my wallet, but turns out I only had $9. Seems like the guy at the counter shorted me a $5. I am just wondering if it's poor math skills or on purpose, because that's not very cool. Anyways, I do still love the food but am only paying with exact change.

Cafe Hermosa4 West 7 Ave, Vancouver
Good sandwiches but HORRIBLE service
Submitted Thursday, February 12, 2009 - 12:39pm [Dine in]

I used to go to this cafe quite a bit to grab a home made sandwich from their cooler. The sandwiches are really good, and you get a lot more bang for your buck. The last time I went there, which was in the summer, I vowed never to return, no matter how much I like their sandwiches. There are two women who work there, the only two I have ever seen there before and they are the most miserable cashiers/baristas I have EVER encountered in my life. They do not say hello or even look at you when you come into the cafe, and when you purchase your food they dump your change on the counter and don't mutter a single thing, the only thing they do is manage to keep that nasty scowl on their faces. I've tried smiling, I've tried saying hello, but no go, nothing, just two horribly miserable cashiers/baristas who apparently hate their job. I am assuming these lovely ladies are part of the family that owns the cafe because nothing can explain why they were not fired ages ago. I've been wanting to comment on this cafe forever but it was on dinehere, now it is, and here's my comment. I hope they read this, or at least management does.

Service Sucks!
Submitted Friday, October 3, 2008 - 5:41pm [Dine in]

The young male server, maybe there's more than one, you know who you are, is rude and grouchy and goes out of his way to make you feel uncomfortable. Too bad that the food is fairly decent, though I wouldn't call it mexican per se, and the prices are good, but the servers are rude and the hostesses haven't got a clue about anything, period.
