My boss took me to lunch yesterday to the Siding Cafe (haven't been there for about a year) and I can confirm, unfortunately, that it has indeed gone downhill. We both had the soup of the day (Carrot Ginger ) which was not bad but it was luke warm, bordering on cold. Another annoying aspect of the first course was that our soup did not come with any bread or rolls. When I brought this to the attention of our waitress she gave me a dirty look and went off in huff. She later returned with what amounted to four slices of brown sandwich bread and to make matters worse, my boss later told me that they charged us for the four slices of bread.
With respect to our mains I ordered their frittata which I have enjoyed in the past, however, on this occasion the chef had obviously left it in the oven too long because it was cooked for fair. My boss had more success with his grilled salmon sandwich special which he said was pretty good.
As for the service it was rather underwhelming to say the least.
It is quite unfortunate that the SC has fallen to these depths because when it first opened I thought they did a very good job. A good example of " if it ain't broke don't fix it".
