...

...Went shopping to Dunedin to cute little shops like Darling Memories,Amanda Austin and Rose Garden. Everyone in these shope were nice and welcoming. I wanted to end my shopping experience with a nice cup of Java.
Whe I walked to Cappucino's Bakery...I saw a couple of customers and once person working behind the counter so I decided to sit and but my bags down. When I sat on the counter...the lady working there didn't aknowledge me but I figure she was alone so I didn't take it personally. Since I really was craving my cup of Java I decided to patiently wait. After taking the order from customers she went to the back and dissapeared for 20 minutes.
At this point I really needed to go to the bathroom. When she came of to serve the people I asked if she can buzz me to the bathroom and she ignored me. I asked again and she SHOUTED at me and I saw a mean lady looking at me. She yelled""don't you see that I'm working alone here...if you need a public bathroom there's one around the corner"". I metioned to her that I was a potential customer and I have been patient by waiting 20 minutes and she didn't have to yell at me and send me to a public bathroom. I've had my bags here and that she shouldn't abuse me for no reason.
After that...she yelled at me again and told me that I should leave her shop. SHe mentioned that she was the owne and I was shocked and couldn't believe that she was being so cruel to me for no apparent reason. She basically was taking out her job or personal frustrations on me. I was really shocked and like any women with some integrity I defended my case....and tol her that she was very cruel and bitter and that this is no way to treat a customer who has been patiently waiting. She then did the ultimate...she called the cops so they can escort me for no reason. Since it was so unfair...I figured I would wait and explain my side of the story to the cops...that I was basically waiting 20 minutes for a cup of Java and to use the bathroom and this lady was just cruel with me for no apparent cause...just being abusive towards me from her personal frustrations.
I decided to leaven and not let her ruin the wonderful experience I had with other merchant owners in the area. I saw her as being cruel, catty and bitter and left without take in it personally.
I have travelle all over the world and come from a family of restaurant owners and I ive that the owner of Cappuccino's Bakery a 0 out of 10 rating for cruelty, abuse, and and hateful energy. Have a spirit lady...it's Xmas. She is a lady Scroodge.
If you are visiting Dunedin...stay away if you are happy, attractive and fairly young because this witch will hate on you and give you ill treatment. She represents the haters of the world who hate the happy, sexy, beautiful and cheerful young women. STAY AWAY from the abuse. Oh by the way I saw she did the same to a customer on a Yahoo Travel Review....this MErchant will give Dunedin a bad name.

Wedding Paradise, with a downside

Our daughter's wedding was set for 2:30. At 2:25 people were still arriving, yet Julie told our DJ to wrap up the background music. She then turned to the bride's aunt (my sister) and told her to immediately start her piano medley. Guests continued coming but when our DJ pointed it out, Julie replied in a tone and the assurance of a drill sergeant, ""The wedding WILL start at 2:30."" SHE WAS NOT NICE, and when trying to reason with her, she interrupted with, ""I'll take care of it"".

Julie took care of it alright. She sent someone to the parking lot to divert guests from the main entrance. Instead they had to come through a side door and wander down a narrow hallway where the wedding party was lined up. One guest tripped and nearly fell trying to avoid stepping on the bride's wedding dress.

We were the only event scheduled for that day at Lakeside Gardens. In fact we'd purchased an extra hour of time just in case. THERE WAS ABSOLUTELY NO NEED to start the wedding precisely at 2:30 and Julie knew it. No need to humiliate our guests. And sadly, some names never made it on the guest book.

Julie should have asked the bride or her parents what they wanted to do. Instead she rushed us. As soon as she cut off the background music my sister immediately started playing the piano as ordered. BUT THERE SHOULD HAVE BEEN A MOMENT OF SILENCE, or a small chime or something. No one realized the wedding was starting therefore the piano began while people continued filing in the back door. The chapel remained abuzz with talking that continued through the entire piano performance. Then, as if that wasn't enough?Julie came up (WHILE SHE WAS PLAYING) to whisper more instructions.

There's more but I'm limited on space here. Let's just say the place was clean & beautiful, the food good. Just don't turn Julie loose on your wedding day without full communication and most important...designating someone for her to ask if there is a question.

Great Venue, Terrible Service

I had my wedding there in the winter season. It was absolutely beautiful. The staff was very helpful up to the point of the wedding day itself. I will not go the nitty gritty of what all they tried and did pull off. A couple of things to note: they serve dinner on salad plates! They charge for bottles of wine that were unused. We were told when we purchased them that we would be able to leave with the left over food and wine. When my mom went to pick it up the next day they said there absolutely nothing left. I personally saw the kitchen after the wedding and saw them boxing up the food and wine. We were really taken for all that they possibly could. AND, they were very rude after the wedding. They are great before they get your money but terrible after they do.
