Taste in Newtonville- A Bad Taste in My Mouth

Shake N Bake | May 7, 2006 02:35 PM

Went over to Taste in Newtonville this morning for a veggie omelette, Mr Shake N Bake ordered a ham and cheese omelette. The meal went downhill from there. My veggie omelette came within 10 minutes, but the ham and cheese did not show up. After a few minutes, I inquired, and a not-so-nice employee figured out that they gave it to someone else, who had actually ordered a bacon and cheese omelette. She asked if we would eat the bacon and cheese omelette, to which we said no, we wanted a ham and cheese omelette. Minutes later, she grumpily served a ham and cheese CREPE, to our dismay. When we explained we ordered an omelette, and wanted that with the included toast and hash browns, she was miffed. She peeled off the crepe, and threw on some toast and hash browns. My appetite was ruined. My recommendation here is that they implement a system- since they do not have servers, they need to either take your name or give you a number for your order so that there are less mix-ups. I'm disappointed that this neighborhood joint has gone downhill, hopefully the soon-to-be-opened Elevenses down the street will be better.
