Respond to Review of CLOSED: Juicy Jones - Cardenal

Review: I really don't know what to make of this place. Positives: awesome place with amazing funky murals on the walls. SO MANY JUICES/SMOOTHIES, I have never seen so much choice! The hummus was absolutely delicious -- I always thought hummus was pretty much the same everywhere, but this was magical hummus. So good! My partner had one of their sandwiches which was HUGE and he was extremely happy with it. I had the seitan pinxos (skewers), and loved those too, lovely sauce, beautifully cooked, good portion size. The staff were very pleasant and attentive but not too attentive. Prices were decent for the starters and mains, all of which were pretty massive. Yay! OK, negatives: the place was FREEZING COLD for some reason. It's kind of underground, don't know if that's why? The puddings are utterly mediocre - no other word for it. We all ordered different ones and no one finished theirs because they were just not pleasant. The apple tart sounds delicious but is actually cold, slimy and pretty awful. Sorry Juicy! Has to be a middling three cows from me :( UPDATED from previous review on Saturday July 21, 2012 OK, I went back to Juicy Jones this week, ONE year on, and I've decided what I think of it now... and it's not good :( This time my bloke and I went in to have breakfast -- we were really excited as we don't know of any other vegan/veggie places in Barcelona that have a breakfast menu. Breakfast starts at 10am, we got there at around 10.45am and the girl at the counter told us, "I don't have muffins, I don't have gofres, I don't have toastadas." That is THE WHOLE BREAKFAST MENU. She wasn't apologetic at all, just gave us the lunch menu to look at instead. She also told us we couldn't take a seat to discuss/think about it/look at the menu because "you have to order and pay first." Needless to say, we left. Sorry JJ, there are just too many other good vegan places in Barcelona. Downgraded to two cows :(
