Three of us grabbed something to eat at Alfresco. I'm not a regular reviewer, but I felt I needed to comment on three things:
1. Food was not tasty or good. All three of us ordered different items and none enjoyed what was ordered. I tried a bite of someone else's wrap, and I liked it even less than what I ordered.
2. I ordered a chai latte. I expected something more than Tazo Chai from Costco mixed with soy milk for the $3 (or whatever it was).
3. No receipt. She did the calculation on a piece of paper and told me the total. I paid without thinking, but after I left, the total seemed off to me, so I re-calculated and she charged me an extra $2.15. Either she doesn't know how to add or she added an extra 10% tip. I did include tax in my calculation.
Bottom Line: Even though I walk by there every now and then while I'm in Santa Cruz, I will not eat there again. I'm not a fussy eater, and usually I'll give another chance to any vegetarian place, but when someone screws with the bill like that and/or is not willing to take the time calculate the total correctly, I will never go back. I would give one cow if I could.
Cons: Taste, Value, Incorrect Bill
