Respond to Review of Caffellatte
by Flora Fleming
Review: In Florence on a week long break in late November, we went to a lot of trouble to find this place, and just wish we had taken some trouble to read the reviews first. We waited 40 minutes to be served, although there were only three other customers present with two of those being together. Just as we were about to give up and leave, the owner took our order. Being assured that both the soup and quich were vegan, and feeling cold and very hungry, we asked for both. The soup was a watered down, stone cold, plate of something green with no flavour whatsoever to give any clues as to its ingredients. No bread was served with the 'soup'. The quich was laughable: mine, a "mixed vegetable" variety apparently, was a very small, very thin, slice of something that looked like it might contain some vegetable matter but which, like the soup, had absolutely no taste at all. My husband had chosen the tomato variety and, although his slice was even thinner than mine (a tremendous feat in itself), it at least did have some taste - of salt. The quich slices were served on teaplates and still managed to look insignificant. All of this, together with one coffee (cold) and one small glass of juice cost a staggering 35 euros. A total rip-off and it should be pointed out that prices were NOT on display. Anyway, had the whole bill come to 5 euros, we still wouldn't have gone back. That night, we had dinner at Dolce Vegan and THAT was a delight.
