My God that looks like it would kill a diabetic on sight alone.  Much too sweet for my morning taste.

It was outstanding.

 

At home it's either an omelette or oatmeal. 

 

Once in a while you have to mix things up.

Food poisoning from a clients in-house café. Went to the hospital. The hospital beat me to it, by notifying the local health dept.

Took Mom to lunch at Coasterra today...  Spectacular views, great service.  Food was okay.

I stole this photo from Yelp:

 

 

Things like this really piss me off...from their online menu:

"A 4% surcharge will be added to all Guest checks to help cover increasing coast and in our support of the recent increases to minimum wage and benefits for our dedicated Team Members."

 

Just raise the food prices by $1 on every item and be done with it.  Don't nickel and dime with surcharges to try to make yourselves look like heroes and that you "take care of your employees".  I would love to ask the employees if they got a raise or increase in benefits upon the addition of the surcharge.

 

Also, why don't you use a portion of that charge to hire yourself an editor for your website, as I don't think your need to charge more money to cover your increasing coast...

Drives me crazy also.  

 

With a 4% surcharge I would normally reduce the tip to 16%, although our server yesterday was outstanding so I didn't this time.

Same reason why cell phone companies charge you a $5.99 "administration fee" and a $3.99 "regulation compliance fee" jumbled in with the taxes (to make you think its a tax) but its really just a extra charge to their big number in bold print "monthly service fee" above the line.
