I'm posting a bit of a rant here.I've been going to Macrina on 1st for a long time now because I think they make the best pastries in town AND they are close by (though I have always wished they made a croissant). Lately though, I've just been coming to my wits end with the people that work there. The lines move amazingly slow and getting a coffee can take upwards of 15 minutes from order. Look, I'm all for the idea that good things take time, but picking a pastry out of a case and making a coffee shouldn't be a 20 minute affair. Everyone just seems completely under-trained and a few people there are just downright moody.

I was just there yesterday and to be honest, it wasn't too bad but every time I go there now I am expecting the worst. It's very unfortunate because the quality of food they put out is so high. My other option is La Panier in the market, but that place is just a complete zoo on the weekends...
