Respond to Review of CLOSED: Stephanie's Bakery
Review: My sister and I went there yesterday. I was starving and had wanted to try the goodies for so long I was excited to hear they have pizza too. We got there at about 2pm and ordered a cheese pizza with artichokes & got some other goodies. The brownie was disappointing. I'm a big brownie lover and it was more cake like and too fluffy. My sister got a brownie tart with cream on it and it was an odd combo. My brother-in-law said it had too much salt in the cream. The Tollhouse cookie bar was really great though. Unfortunately we sat on the bench inside the very hot bakery waiting for our pizza for nearly an hour. The flaky blonde girl who took our order was standing at the counter almost that entire time and never came to tell us if our pizza was ready. I waited until the other woman was done talking to some customers and asked about our pizza. She said it was right there on top of the oven and had been waiting for "quite a while". My sister said she seemed nice but was shocked that the woman did not apologize to us for making us wait. I was absolutely famished and had just spent my first Mother's Day without my mom (who died last Feb.) and I hadn't eaten all day. I was really mad. If that's the kind of flaky service Stephanie's Bakery offers then even the Tollhouse cookie bars won't get me to go back there. Plus, once we finally drove all the way back to La Mesa to eat our pizza it was rather gross. The cheese is too salty and cream-cheese like, and the pizza is as greasy as the kind we had in Junior High School that had to be toweled off. Not worth it at all!!!
