Short story, long, when I moved to the Bay Area in 2009, I always wanted to go to Flore Cafe because I'd been there a lot during visits in previous years. What I didn't know was that it had really gone downhill and that none of the locals went there anymore. Over the years it had seemed to get better and better, and I always brought people, including many locals, who admitted it was much better than they'd remembered or expected. However, with recent changes in ownership the prices, quality, service, etc, I have fluctuated quite a bit. The prices have really increased to the point where it's not the bargain it once was. It wasn't that the prices were that high, it was that I had ordered hummus appetizer which came with a pile of hummus with a few teeny, tiny celery and carrot sticks and one small piece of white toast. I loaded hummus on each bite, but in the end I had lots of hummus left, so asked if I could get a little more to scoop it up with. The server said, under her breath, "so you want a side of chips?" All I really heard was chips, so I said sure. I was charged for the chips and when I mentioned it to the server she apologized and said the owner would not allow servers to give customers more without charge, even though they'd apparently had a lot of complaints and the server had specifically asked the owner to provide more veggies with the hummus. They lost my business over what is probably $0.10 worth of carrots and celery. This visit will be my last.
