Cafe Fanny rip-off?

Alexandra Eisler | Nov 7, 2006 04:46 PM

My chow pup and I stopped by Cafe Fanny yesterday morning for a late breakfast. She had a slice of the apple galette and was very pleased; delicate puff pastry and warm, firm apple slices, without much added sugar.

I ordered the "Seasonal Fruit with Organic Strauss Yogurt" and received 2/3 cup of apple sauce with a TABLESPOON of yogurt on top. For $4.25.

Is this SOP? I expected a bowl (or at least a cup) of fruit and thought the yogurt would be an actual portion, not a garnish, based on the name of the dish.

The apple sauce was just ok, by the way. Seemingly, no added spices or sugar, just tart apples. ("The food was awful. And the portions were so small") Next time, I'll stick with the millet muffin.
