I loves driving 45 miles to smack my lips on them good breakfasts. Worth the drive!

My wife and I decided to grab breakfast here <br /> while our boys were practicing for a flag folding <br /> ceremony for a Memorial Day servie at church.<br /> When we arrived, we put our name on the waiting list<br /> and waited outside. Not long after we had placed <br /> our order, the "music" shifted from a low key Willie<br /> Nelson mix to a high volume group of instruments <br /> playing with an angry man slurred his words over them.<br /> Not singing - angrily slurred talking is the best way I can<br /> describe this sound - and it was playing directly behind us.<br /> It was overpowering.<br /> It was difficult to even talk or think over.<br /> Now I have a high tolerance of most things, but this was <br /> over the top. We even asked the people next to us what <br /> they thought of it, and they weren't happy about it either.<br /> My wife found someone on staff before I did to <br /> request that it either be changed or turned down.<br /> Now, my Bride is respectful, considerate, and kind -<br /> and at the same time articulate enough to communicate <br /> what she wants to say. She also has a degree in restaurant<br /> management, among other things and ran one of the <br /> top restaurants in Portland in her younger days.<br /> <br /> So I was surprised when she came back to the table and said <br /> that they weren't willing to change the music or turn it down.<br /> After a few more minutes, we decided if the environment wasn’t <br /> going to change - then we would change our environment!<br /> No sense letting good food go to waste :)<br /> We took our food to the outside table<br /> where it was quieter & made the best of it.<br /> <br /> OK, so here is where, had I not seen it with<br /> my own 2 eyes and heard it with my own<br /> 2 ears, I would not have believed it.<br /> I swear, I wondered when the camera crew<br /> was going to come out and say “SURPRISE!”<br /> and that we were on some sort of prank show.<br /> <br /> One of the staff, who I later discovered was the<br /> owner, came out with ‘To Go’ boxes and our bill<br /> telling us we couldn’t have food outside.<br /> And after trying to tell her that we came outside<br /> because we couldn’t be inside with that “music”,<br /> she proceeded to tell my Wife that she was<br /> being dramatic and immature and that<br /> clearly this wasn’t her kind of place.<br /> Seriously – this is where I thought cameramen<br /> would be coming out any second from hiding.<br /> Not only was the woman - THE OWNER - <br /> publicly berating us in front of other customers,<br /> but her accusations were not even on keel with reality.<br /> The only drama and immaturity was from her.<br /> We were completely calm throughout our visit -<br /> and you could ask anyone there and they’d agree.<br /> <br /> After our scolding, another couple came out and they, <br /> too had mentioned that they didn’t care for the “music”, <br /> and they were told they were welcome to not come back.<br /> Really – that happened! They told us - and they were shocked, too!<br /> I guess we were not the only crazy ones.<br /> <br /> The entire experience was unbelievable,<br /> and to be honest – downright insulting.<br /> <br /> This is the first time in my 45 years that I have ever<br /> taken the time to write a negative review - but it is<br /> also the first time I have seen this kind of treatment.<br /> <br /> It was humiliating, insulting, embarrassing, and <br /> the owner of the restaurant should be ashamed<br /> of herself for treating so many others so poorly.<br /> Yes, I said many others. Take the time to read<br /> through the reviews and you will see a pattern.<br /> <br /> Do yourself a HUGE favor and stay away<br /> from Junior's Cafe - it's not worth it.<br /> There are plenty of other places you can go<br /> where you are welcome and appreciated...<br />
