Bringing in your own cake

luvarugula | May 19, 2008 10:13 AM

I may be opening up a huge can of worms here...but here goes.

I was just wondering what people's thoughts were on restaurant policies that refuse to allow customers to bring in their own birthday cakes to be served up after their meal.

I am on the fence about this subject, since I try to understand both sides. On the one hand, I understand that restaurants are in the business of making money, and selling the desserts on the menu is certainly one way to do that. On the other hand, in order to try and accommodate most situations, why not allow outside cakes to be brought in, and simply charge a plating fee. That way, the restaurant can still make money. Is this an unfair suggestion?

Just wondering...
