Little Pie, Big let down

Has anyone else noticed a decline in service and quality at the Little Pie Co. on west 43rd? I usually love it there, but lately I've experienced really apathetic and unfriendly service, and I got a little pie today that was flavorless and seemed a couple days old. Aren't pies a part of the whole baked-good family where freshness is one of the most key factors in quality?

Another bone I had to pick with them: I asked to get my little pie warmed up, and they told me that they can't warm up whole pies because the tins can't go in the microwave. microwave?? I was taken aback, and asked if they didn't have an oven they could put it in, and they said no, they only use a microwave. I understand that this is for time purposes, but on a slow day that's cold and rainy, if I'm paying six bucks for a little dessert, is it too much to ask that they put it back in the oven it came from for a few minutes?

Any other frequent visitors who've had similar experiences?
