Respond to Review of CLOSED: Avanti Cafe
by irlandaise

Review: My husband felt VERY VERY SICK after eating here. Seriously, he couldn't eat anything for the next 24 hours - he even went over to the Urgent Care the next morning to get checked out by a doctor, it was that bad! We will not be going back, that's for certain. The food wasn't very exciting, and the menu was pretty limited for vegan choices. It's a shame too, because the staff was very friendly and it seemed like a cute local place.

What you have written is just not appropriate for posting anonymously on HappyCow.

By insisting on posting this you are hurting a business.

I request that you delete & rewrite this Review.

Bug's can be picked up from toothbrushes / door handles / keys / any number of places.

Even if the bug was on one of their ingredients such as the bread these things are microscopic / cannot be avoided.

Hello Irlandaise, We are sorry to hear that your husband was ill the day you visited Avanti Cafe. We wish you would have brought this to our attention directly instead of posting such a negative accusatory review of us on Happy Cow. We taste every batch of everything we make & pride ourselves on freshness & quality. We have heard no other reports of anyone ever being sick from our food. Also, we completely reject your statement that we have few vegan options. Over 70% of our menu items can easily be made vegan. We appreciate that you and your husband did not enjoy your visit to Avanti Cafe, but we suggest that when writing reviews, please keep comments professional & not personally insulting and accusatory. Many thanks, Avanti Cafe

Yes, it was his FIRST and (thus) LAST meal of the day. He felt great before eating at Avanti Cafe, and nauseated directly after.

Sorry to hear about the sickness of your husband.

Why do you include it in a restaurant review?

Did he eat / drink nothing else that day?

Could he have picked up a stomach bug from any other source?
