I wish their service was as good as their food. I'm really tired of the lackadaisical attitudes. Maybe I see you, maybe I don't...Sorry I'm not as cool as you but I am hungry and have money in my pocket (enough to tip well if you treat me respectably). This is a service industry, not just an industry.

I'm amazed Le Reve (in Tosa) isn't listed here, but perhaps suburban venues weren't permitted or encouraged for this poll. Le Reve has creative, delicious French-style patisserie and great baked goods. Definitely a few steps beyond the usual cheesecake, creme brulee, molten chocolate cake, and other clichs found on local menus.
