Cafe Rani on the skids?

gymbeau | Aug 20, 2009 07:14 AM

The last two visits to Cafe Rani left much to be desired. The next to the last visit they appeared to be short handed, and the food was barely ok. Much was left on the plate. The last visit,
more of the same only worse.

The common denominator for both visits, was a young woman that seem to be in some position of authority, (manager, owners daughter?) that was obviously resentful that she had
to bring food, drinks, etc.... When she 'slung' the plates on the table some of the food landed
on the table.

Had they been busy, I could have understood the wait. But there was only one other table
occupied inside, and about half outside were vacant.

I hope that this is a transient problem and will be resolved because I really like the atmosphere, and diverse menu. Any clue what is going on?
