Respond to Review of Junior's Cafe
Review: TREATED HORRIBLY - Will never go back! My wife and I decided to grab breakfast here while our boys were practicing for a flag folding ceremony for a Memorial Day service at church. When we were finally seated, and after we had placed our order, the "music" shifted from a low key Willie Nelson mix to a high volume combination of slurred talking over loud noisey instruments It was difficult to even talk or think over. Now I have a high tolerance of most things, but this was over the top. We even asked the people next to us what they thought of it, and they weren't happy about it either. My wife found someone on staff before I did to request that it either be changed or turned down. Now, my Bride is respectful, considerate, and kind - and at the same time articulate enough to communicate what she wants to say. She also has a degree in restaurant management, among other things and ran one of the top restaurants in Portland in her younger days. So I was surprised when she came back and said that they weren't willing to change the music or turn it down. After a few more minutes, we decided to eat at the outside table. No sense letting good food go to waste :) We took our food to the outside table where it was quieter & made the best of it. OK, so here is where, had I not seen it with my own 2 eyes and heard it with my own 2 ears, I would not have believed it. I swear, I wondered when the camera crew was going to come out and say “SURPRISE!” and that we were on some sort of prank show. One of the staff, who I later discovered was the owner, came out with ‘To Go’ boxes and our bill telling us we couldn’t have food outside. And after trying to tell her that we came outside because we couldn’t be inside with that “music”, she proceeded to tell my Wife that she was being dramatic and immature and that clearly this wasn’t her kind of place. Seriously – this is where I thought cameramen would be coming out any second from hiding. Not only was THE OWNER publicly berating us in front of other customers, but the only drama and immaturity was from her. We were completely calm throughout our visit - and you could ask anyone there & they’d agree. After our scolding, another couple came out and they, too had mentioned that they didn’t care for the “music”, and they were told they were welcome to not come back. Seriously! It was humiliating, insulting, embarrassing, and the owner of the restaurant should be ashamed. Do yourself a HUGE favor and stay away!
