I really had trouble finding a bakery who makes "GOOD" Princess Cake after Miette discontinued to make one.
A tweet from Twitter directed me to visit this bakery located in Richmond District.
Well, I am going to get another princess cake for 4th of July weekend gathering today.
An overheard conversation like "What is good?" and a store clerk's response "Everything perfect" make perfectly sense to me.
A friend who has never tried their cake say "Why do you need to go to all the way to Richmond District to get cakes from Mission?" and other who happen to know this bakery said "I know that place" when I bring up their cakes.
The friend resides in Hayes Valley gets cakes from Safeway on Market St. I think he needs to learn a route to get Richmond district pretty soon.
Very Slow Service.
Waited 25 minutes to get 4 piece of mix chickens with French Fries & Green Salad without
They gave me not so fresh 2 pieces of Tortilla (shame, shame, shame. You are doing a business in Mission) that totaled about $15 included in TAX.
As time get close to 4 PM, many employees left from a door, but none of To Go orders were left from the door after 3:40 PM. Many customers were very frustrated, but none of employees including a store manager were doing their best.
First and last visit for Pollo Campero.
Can't wait to Popeye to open again on 22nd Street and Roli Roti on Thursday at 23rd Street Farmers Market.
As I recognized a long line, I learned that it was Grimaldi's. My friend and I had no intention to visit this place, but we eventually did because we were hungry, and the line was gone by 3:30 PM on Sunday Afternoon.
A guy with a hat welcomed us into the restaurant immediately as we stood by the door and lead us to sit on a upper floor.
A pizza tray holder on a table gave us little excitement.
As we glanced a menu, we were surprise to find out prices weren't a tourist price, and also noticed that atmosphere in the restaurant resembled with a little authentic Italian Cafe at North Beach in San Francisco.
Although our order was taken smoothly, we had to wait about 15 to 20 minutes to get a pizza with Jalapeno, Chicken & Basile. My friend got irritated, but I remained clam.
Finally, our pizza was placed on the Pizza Tray! Fresh Basil (really), Fresh Mozzarella that don't make different from a Farmer's Market at Ferry Building in San Francisco and Lucca Deli on Valencia Street in San Francisco. We enjoyed our Pizza so much, and a small Pizza became our supper. Whatever other reviewer said, we loved our Pizza, and we fell in love with this place.
They also serve authentic Cannoli. I would have ordered it if I hadn't eaten three scoop of ice cream from Brooklyn Ice Cream Factory.
At this moment, we learned that our server didn't care about our table, so we had hard time to get more drinks and a check while other table still had very courteous server.
Missing One star is due to the server who left us ;otherwise, I give five star.
Thank you Grimaldi's. We all have good Pizza and a wonderful time at Brooklyn.
For New Yorkers, this place might be mediocre for your folks, but your mediocre might be our best.
I stopped this place because unlike other carts on 47th Street, people were making line despite of quick service.
I decided to visit this place over a fancy bakery shop on 5th Avenue.
As I slowly approached this cart, I was able to see a menu that placed on the side of the cart. They have French Toast, Pancakes, Breakfast Platters etc and all looks good.
Two Eggs any style $3, add Ham $1.25, Cheese Omelet $4, I couldn't believe where I were to get a breakfast.
I had Two Sunny Side Eggs, Home fries, and Toast. Then I also ordered a cup of coffee. I gave them $5, and still got change with a bill.
A man & woman who work in the cart seem to have pride to serve a good food.
My breakfast platter was so good and satisfying.
Although this place was so busy, she made sure to check everything I ordered before I took off.
When I passed by around 2 PM, they were already gone.
Thank you for giving me wonderful energy, and you were the one of people who gave me a great memory of New York.
Although my regular white bread has been keeping its excellence for decades, I do not agree with their new 10 cents charge for SF Health Security Ordinance fee.
They have an eat-in corner, but they do not have a wait person to serve. When I asked why I have been charged 10 cents, a sales clerk couldn't explain to me nor gave me a receipt. I found out it when I got the receipt from other location.
My last comfortable 4th stay at this Y was in 2004. I loved this property because the Cafe always served a good food, and unique tours were posted on a blackboard.
3 Airport shuttles schedule from Y and price were posted, so I could head to any airport without taking subway (Including EWR.)
The cafe was gone, so there are no more vibe. Cold cereal with milk became my breakfast, but I rather go to Whole Foods to get some pastry with a cup of coffee.
Tours? No posting at all.
Shuttles? No word.
Baggage storage. $4 for per item. They asked me to buy a ticket from a machine in a hall (not responded.)
Cleaning ladies. Came too early. 6 AM? Also, she gave me only conditioners and soap. Shampoo? I asked you to give me one, hadn't I?
Bathroom. Don't even want to mention. I always go to a shower in a gym because I swim.
Patrons. Occasionally I bumped a woman who walked around a bare foot and complaining about a location of a fountain water. I can only directed her to buy a bottle of water from a robotic cafe in the first floor.
Reception: I have a good and bad experience.
Bed. Can't take it anymore. May be I am too old to sleep that bed.
On 2nd day, I attempted to cancel further stay, but a receptionist treated me very badly which prevented for me to have a further conversation with her.
Laundry. Some site says this property has a laundry facility, but obviously not for us. They told me that they don't have it. So, I had to walk many blocks to do my laundry before I take off from NY.
Conclusion. No more. I don't like this property anymore. Good bye.
Strawberry Cake taste mediocre, but couldn't resist to pay $5 slice because they have a nice seating in front of a shop. I rather go to Cafe Puccini if I only want to enjoy Cannoli and a cup of Coffee. I usually get Princess Cake from Miette, but Victoria's Princess Cake looks good. I would like to try next time.
I've tried many different salons in SF prior to JCBC. When I visited at JCBC first time, a stylist who has magnificent technique caught my eyes. I figured out his name when I made a next appointment. Sohei has been my stylist since and his technique, way to create a style always amuses me.
Although I only ask Sohei, I assume that all stylists have excellent technique as well as superior customer service. I am so glad to know that they have a place that reflect their skills and characters. It is very lovely, cute, and sophisticated.
