Respond to Review of CLOSED: Love Tree Cafe
Review: Arrived in St. Augustine w/ Happy Cow list of Vegan Restaurants. Checked out Love Tree Cafe on Friday and Sat around lunch time and it was closed STRANGE? Are those not good business days to be open? No sign on the door...Nothing! On Sunday I was happy to see the doors were open but there was no staff persons...just tourists wandering around for 10 minutes. My mom and I left and came back a few minutes later after checking out some other shops. A man walked downstairs from this home/shop and ignored us. When my mom asked "do you run this joint?" he became rude and defensive and stated "This is not a joint! It is an establishment! Get off of my property! We tried to explain that we were just trying to get some lunch and had previously walked around in his "establishment" along with other tourists for about 10 min W/O any customer service interaction but this gentleman would not hear a word we had to say and in a frightening manner chased us out of the cafe/home like setting. I am so glad I did not eat here. The man we met seems mentally unstable and I would have been scared to eat anything he may have prepared.
