Bulldog Coffee Toronto - A lot of bull, not a lot to write home about

This is the last time we go to Bulldog Coffee. We had stopped going there because of the attitude we got from the owner and his staff. One of the things that they will ask you to do when you are done is to pick up your dishes and put them in the tray (and ONLY in the tray, or you WILL be humiliated). This is not a casual thing that happens every once in a while. You are being monitored and policed so that the moment you get up and they notice you are about to do the unthinkable and leave your dishes on the table, they will give you an indirect order to do so (form the tone of their voices, it becomes obvious that they are not really asking you, they are TELLING you to do so or else). This is not the only issue with the owner and the staff: customers are snapped at for leaving loose change as tips (!?) or told that they “need not come back” (??). The owner seems to have this idea that he has the inherent right to domesticate (i.e. discipline / sometimes abuse) his customers, and appears to have trained his staff to do so as well. One thing is for sure, we are not picking up our dishes and taking them to the tray for the $15 we paid for two small coffees and two scones.
