bread surcharge

While my wife and I were at Celestin in Toronto for summerlicious, I asked to look at the regular dinner menu.

Now, I understand that costs have risen recently and this is reflected in the menu prices which range from $15-20+ for appetizers and $35-45 for mains

However, I was surprised to see that there was a "Bread Surcharge" of 75 cents per person.

A three course menu for 2 with wine might cost close or more than $250 with tip.

I think that this is a tacky not well thought out charge which most certainly will make me think about whether I will wish to dine there.


P.S. to add further insult to tackiness, the automatic 15% gratuity for Summerlicious patrons was calculated on the total check including government sales taxes and not solely on the food and beverage charges.

Thoughts anyone
