Got the below rant from my My Space friend Elaine..
I went into Yummy’s Bakery yesterday with my 3-year-old daughter. We shared a grilled cheese sandwich (and soup, and we each got a drink). The sandwich was $3.95. Neither one of us has a big appetite and we do this all the time (share a dish).
I saw they charged a $2.00 sharing fee. When I asked the waitress, she whispered to me, “It’s the owner, if I ring you up, I’ll take it off.” Well I decided to ask him. He’s sitting at the register, this ugly big fat thing that was leering at me all through lunch. I asked him why there was a $2.00 sharing fee on a $3.95 sandwich, that I never heard of this before.
He YELLED at me that I’m lucky it’s not $3.00, that restaurants everywhere do this. I told him they do not, I eat out with my daughter for lunch a lot, and never had this happen. He told me I was lying, that yes they do. Actually, he’s sputtering and yelling. I asked him why he was being such a jerk. He said “You’re just bitching because you’re pouting and not getting your way. I’m not capitulating to you so you’re just being a brat.” I was so shocked he said that to me. I’m so embarrassed but I had to choke back the tears and told him he is being very mean to me, that I never heard of this sharing charge before, and I’ve been coming to this bakery since my 12 year old daughter was in diapers. He looked at me and said I never saw you before.
I said you’re a new owner! That’s why! He then pointed his finger to the door and said “Get out of here!”
As I was leaving with my daughter (and yes I paid the $2) these customers that were eating (a table of 6 with an old man and lady and their daughter and her daughters) said I was in the right, that he was a jerk to me. He yelled from the counter “Stop talking to them and get out the store now!” He screamed back “You’re a big bully!” and got out of there. I went to Kid to Kid with my daughter to have a good cry in the aisles while she looked at all the toys.
The customers that were in there came in looking for me (or maybe they just happened to go to that store – I don’t know) and gave me tissues and told me they told the owner he was wrong, and he threw them out of the store too.
He threw a 60 year woman out of the store!
I was in there about 3 months ago and saw him scream at a waitress who then broke a coffeepot, which then made him scream more. And we had to send a turkey sandwich back because the turkey smelled rank.
He is the new owner and the cafe is so small – about 10 tables. He re-did the place from white to black and red and now it looks like Satan’s Den and he is Satan, ha!
I’ve been going to Yummy’s since I was a little girl and I love their orange cake and got all my birthday cakes there, but never again!! I just wanted to relate this story so that my Delaware County friends can pass the word.
Have a good weekend!
Now I have never been to this Yummy’s Cafe before, but I seems to me that the owner is not a nice or polite man. I also (with some digging on my own) came across this rant, I gather from Elaine’s fiance.
Chances are that I will never patronize Yummy’s. But for thoese who are curious, here is Yummy’s business listing.
