Bad timing in Guelph

Bob Catt | May 7, 2007 03:33 AM

Yesterday we drove to Guelph for a concert, and beforehand lunched in the dining room of the Ramada Inn on Gordon Street. It was about 1:30 pm, and the Sunday brunch buffet was over, but the menu was available. Our service was delayed because of a heated discussion at the cash register, where the manager questioned the staff about a customer who'd left without paying the tab. Finally we were served by an apologetic, pleasant server. She took our order, served drinks promptly, but we waited - and waited - for the food. We caught her eye and asked if at least we could get the soup quickly as the concert would begin soon. She brought it - so salty it was almost inedible. Then came the "special", the burrito omelets - bland and cold in the middle. Our server had been so willing to please we kept mum, but if you brunch at the Guelph Ramada Inn I suggest you show up early enough for the buffet. We've been there for it and it's much better than yesterday's late meal!
