We went shoe shopping over by McHenry Avenue the other day. Afterward, my wife sprung for lattes and pastry at a local bakery. She paid with a credit card and even tipped the girl for counter service. We sat down to relax and enjoy for a few minutes.
On Monday she notices that the bakery charged her 25 cents for using her credit card and $1 for table use. Mimis, Elephant Bar and Velvet Creamery dont charge for these things!
I think these charges are chintzy. The place was packed, so they didnt need the money. Their lattes werent any better than Starbucks and they dont charge to sit down. They even provide Wi-Fi, free. We gladly pay for good food, but well choose Mimis next time.
