Called Beacon just before 1pm on Saturday, asking if I needed to make a reservation for two for lunch today. Was told walk-ins would be fine.
Shortly thereafter, drove about 40 mins from the Valley and was shocked to see a 'closed' sign on the door! (A few people still dining inside).
"We close at 2pm." My phone read 2.01pm. I kid you not.
Yet on CITYSEARCH it states they are open 'till 2.30pm!!
She went off to consult with the kitchen, but the answer remained the same. Closed.
By now, I was furious. "We called ahead! We just drove 40 minutes. Couldn't someone have said something when we phoned?!"
Honestly, I didn't expect a 'cafe' to keep restaurant hours. And who closes at 2pm? On a weekend, when there are so many shops and shoppers around the Helms area?
Don't think I'll be returning.
