The previous post is a complete twisting of the facts. this employee was fired for a multitude of reasons, which will not be mentioned here. He was not refused pay, but was asked to explain what happened to missing cash drops before he was handed a check. This employee stormed out and made personal threats of bodily harm, and did not wait to get his check. All of our employees are and always have been paid. The ex-employee's mom was asked to leave because she cannot be part of the employee (or ex-employee) and employer conversation legally, as the former employee is 27 years old and not a minor. Not long after, it was discovered the ex-employee also lied on his application. This person and his mother have taken to a internet smear campaign to intentionally hurt us financially, and have unfortunately done so fairly successfully, but not rightfuilly so. His wages were submitted to Iowa Workforce Development over 30 day ago after he failed to claim them, and neither he or his mother has made any attempt to correct any of their negative actions on the internet. Things like this kill small businesses, and this will cost 12 people their jobs if not corrected, and a loss of close to $200,000 invested in this business. It's a shame really that this gentleman can't right his inequities, nor can his mother, after doing so much wrong.
Good diner spot, very popular and very busy on a Sunday at 9am: huge menu with lots of house specials. I tried one: the Waffle Dogs. Sausage on a stick covered in Waffle batter and deep fried, served with maple syrup for dipping: tasty. I also ordered the Eggs Benedict (with sausage): I was expecting sausage patties and not links and the hollandaise sauce was not as creamy rich as it's supposed to be, but the dish overall was good. Service was excellent even when this busy. Cute outdoor seating area (fills up fast).
Stopped here for a cocktail and dessert: Red's Rye and the Ginger Beerchetta. Good ginger beer pairing I think. This looks like a nice place otherwise: they are very slow about cleaning off tables and I'm not sure why parents bring very young children here. Get a baby sitter for your date night people.
I love this place! The food is wonderful; the people very nice; you must try it! I wish other cafes and restaurants would adopt their no Wi-Fi policy. It's my favorite place to eat before going next door to see a movie at The Varsity.
