late note on cafe con leche

patricia@phila | Feb 19, 199807:51 PM    

just to note - we had a disaster early in january,
attempting to have brunch at cafe con leche on
amsterdam. the cook apparently showed up in bad shape
- we waited nearly 90 minutes for soup and huevos
rancheros. finally left cash for coffee after FOUR
other tables were seated and served while others - us,
and three other tables seated earlier, sat and waited
and waited and waited for a soupcon of recognition from
an admnittedly harried staff. we'll never go back -
and feel fortunate that ccl isn't the ONLY spot in town
for a decent cubano.
