Not enough bread and no cakes? - Surprise,surprise
Posted on 08 / 02 / 2014
We've been to the Savory 5 times since it has opened. First for breakfast. At this time, it was fairly new, there was no printed menu, so we had no clue what the breakfast consists of and how much it costs. When we got our breakfast (containing vegan cheese and "Aufschnitt" (vegan ham and salami)), we did not get enough bread to put the slices on, and when we asked, they said they are out of bread but they could pack us the cheese and ham for take away. Well, if we wanted to have breakfast at home, we would've stayed at home! We were a bit puzzled, since if they were really out of bread, they could've easily got some from the many shops in the neighbourhood, and even more so when we saw that other people were already getting their lunch - with toast and rolls (sandwiches)! So they DID have bread. We, however, had to eat our cheese and ham without any, which is not our concept of breakfast. When the bill came, we were surprised at how very expensive this "breakfast" was, and we even had to pay for the coffees separately! The next time, we tried to go for a piece of cake. We were surprised (again) they are closed on a Sunday afternoon, because this is the time when most people want to go for "cake and coffee". So we tried a Saturday. No cake left. We only had a coffee. We tried another Saturday, this time, quite early. No cake and no cupcake left, but we spoke to the girl at the counter, who PROMISED she will bring carrot cakes next Saturday and reserve them for us. When we showed up the following Saturday (and we don't live next door, by the way), she could not even remember having spoken to us, of course there were no carrot cakes, and she said we should really phone beforehand and reserve a table. For a cupcake? No thanks. This was the last time we tried, we were really fed up.
