Respond to Review of CLOSED: Pura Vida Bakery and Bystro
Review: I have mixed feelings about this restaurant. On the one hand, the food is good, but on the other hand, at these prices it should be haute cuisine. The prices at Sunday brunch are breathtaking... $13 for a waffle with fruit on top. Yes it's good, but there are good waffles all over town for less than half this price. The menu is a bit confusing because they have different things available on different days & different times of day, but I noticed that a grilled cheese sandwich is $14. I can't imagine that even Caesar's Palace would charge that much. If this were a restaurant located in Beverly Hills, these prices would probably be considered normal, but this restaurant is in an industrial area next to the freeway. Yes, everybody is super-nice that works there, and the food is good. I guess everybody has their idea of a good value, and I'm sorry, but at these prices I can't find value. If prices had been less than $10, which they are at most veggie places in town I would have rated 4 stars, but taking into account the price paid, I can't go higher than 3. I wish Chef Mayra the best, but she has priced me out of the market, sadly. I know that Mayra's fans are going to flame me for this review, but please let me have my opinion... if you like the place, please write your own glowing review. Thank you.
