Respond to Review of Mother's Market and Kitchen - Huntington Beach
Review: Where to begin-- let's start with the restaurant... I had ONE horrible experience in 2010-11 where my meal was infested with dead fruit flies/gnats/Fungus gnats (whatever they were). I literally could count 15 before the embarrassed waitress took the plate away. Sure that may have been a one time thing BUT i will never eat at there again. Now onto the store... I LOVE that I can find almost everything Vegan at Mother's-- All Mother's are like that so let's stick to this particular store-- IT'S SMALL. Not much anyone can do about that... Honestly looks like a hole in the wall instead of a market based on how everything is piled on the shelves. Also isles are very small and cramped-- annoying looking for something constantly having to get out of peoples way so they can walk by. The entrance is awkward once you walk in-- registers with people checking out are literally in the entrance way. ON TO THE GOOD: The worker bees their are always super helpful!!! Very nice! Always saying Hi! Always asking if they can help! Parking is never an issue! Greenpeace is outside that store often but as long as you know the password they will leave you alone. Bottom line-- if you want 1 or 2 items go to this store... If you want to go shopping GO TO THE ONE OFF OF Newport Blvd in Costa Mesa! It's MUCH BIGGER, MORE ORGANIZED, MUCH MORE PRODUCT. Oh one more thing... It takes much longer than the Costa Mesa store to get a juice! Usually because it's one person and they are usually off to doing work in another part of the store like the restaurant. I can get a juice at the Costa Mesa store in 5-7 mins even if there is a line where it takes 10-15 at the HB store with no line.
