It could be the choice of vegan dishes, but every time we go we are all sorely disappointed with the service. The wait staff and co-owner are very RUDE!! No smile!! No courtesy!! We always feel like we are bothering our waiter when we have to ASK for more coffee or tea. This place is cute, but whatever happened to friendly wait staff and courteous service!! We will not return and ALWAYS choose Madhatters where the food is awesome and their owner and staff are friendly!!! Shame on you Twin Sisters...your location and ""funky"" appeal can only get you so far!!! You've lost 3 of us and we WILL be telling all of our friends!!!

My wife and I heard about this place a few times, and thought we would try it out. We're vegetarian, so we ordered a couple of eggless sandwiches. We thought with the price of $7 that they would be substantial, and that the bread would be hardy, especially since chips and drink cost extra. When the sandwiches finally came, it took a while considering what we got, they were skippy things on bread that could have come right out of a typical grocery store. We didn't even get full. My wife had a cookie, and that was just as disappointing. Our advice, don't waste your hard earned money.

We wanted something light for lunch so stopped for soup and a sandwich. My husband ordered apple juice to start, and our server brought a cup of ice and a juice box, complete with straw attached to the back. After getting over our shock, it took a few moments to tear the top open to pour it into the glass of ice. It was either that or try to squeeze it from the straw. The soup ordered tasted fine but once again was suprised to see our half a sandwich had hardly any meat on it. There was one very thin slice.
I guess the bill was our fault for not looking more closely at the menu as our total for 2 orders of soup & sandwich (cup of soup & half a sandwich) with juice cost us $23!. But get this, that little juice box cost us $2.50. What??
The service was good but I would not recommend if you are watching your budget.

I am surprised at some of the reviews I read.....we ate at the downtown location everyday for lunch while visiting San Antonio. Looking for a place that had healthy options we were very impressed with the food. The staff was very friendly and the food was great. We tried something different every day and was pleased with everything we ate. Wish we had this place in Atlanta, it was excellent.

Wow, I am honestly shocked at all the horrible reviews of Twin Sisters. I am in town on business and the place came very highly recommended by a coworker, so I paid a visit both yesterday and today to the Broadway location. While it was true that I had to wait a little bit for a server to take my order on my first visit, the place was packed both times because I had come in during the lunch hour. No one was rude to me, the food arrived quickly and tasted wonderful. I plan on returning many more times before I leave, and will miss it when I go back home!

This is for the restaurant with the same name on Broadway. The food and service are horrible, don't go there. My friends and I went to this establishment for lunch on August 18th. When we first walked in, the young lady at the front register was very short with us and dismissive, like we were ruining her day even coming in the door. Once we received our food, one of my friends got violently ill after only taking a few bites of her meal. She ran into the restroom, but she still ended up making a mess. I told the young lady who we first met when we came in the door that my friend got sick and there was a mess in the bathroom. The girl rolled her eyes and said ""ok"". We went back to our seats where we were comforting our friend, when an older woman came up to us demanding to know who got sick in the bathroom. My friend said she did, at which point the lady motioned her back to the restroom and demanded she clean up the mess herself. My other friend and I confronted the women, who continued to be rude and told us to get out of the restaurant. We ended up telling the woman we refuse to pay for the food, which had more than likely made my other friend sick, and we left.

I am not sure what the previous person said about the owners and am not even sure who the owners are. I have been there many times and have yet to be treated rudely like they said. The people there are very nice as long as you are not rude or make snide comments to them(not like I would). I am not funky or weird but I LOVE the food and the Twin Sister's ambiance is different but fun. My food is most often prompt only rarely when the whole place is packed does it take 20 minutes. Maybe people need to be a little less rude to people that handle their food and enjoy time spent in a place that you wouldn't normally be in. Twin Sister's is great for healthy food that tastes great.

Wow. I am amazed that an actual owner would be so rude. Currently the cafe is owned by two sisters, Pat and Carol. You will know which one is which by Carol's HORRIBLE attitude. I visited recently and was let down by the food and even more appalled by this womans blunt and pretentious attitude. While I was eating I even overheard her talking to one of her employees like they were dirt underneath her feet. I will never go back to this cafe and would advise others to do the same. With an owner like this, I can not imagine they will be in business much longer.
