One Girl Cookies off Smith St - What a scam!

wanderluster | Jul 30, 200711:08 AM     32

I went to Cookies, the little bakery and gelateria on Dean St on Saturday night. The BF and I each got a small gelato with two scoops. When we went to pay, we were charged $10! I.e. 5 dollars for two scoops of gelato!?! We paid, more out of shock than anything else, but then looked at the chalkboard menu, where it said quite clearly: Small Gelato $3. WTF?? We then asked the cashier why we were being charged $10. Her response: oh we have a different menu at night, because we have table service and there's a different ambiance. Umm, there are neither tables in Cookies (and if so, maybe, there are two if that) nor waitresses. We ordered to-go from the counter. So tell me, is this a total scam? The higher prices were NOT posted anywhere, and last I checked to-go isn't exactly table service. If we hadn't already started eating, we most certainly would have put down the gelato and asked for our money back. Is this absolute b.s. or what? Anyway, be forewarned if you have a late night gelato craving, you will be charged dearly for the privilege of eating at Cookies.
