    I remember my very first visit to Citizen Cafe in 2010, that cold winter day I discovered it, peered in the window, and decided to walk inside. The cozy couches, the amazing bread, soup, salad....I fell in love that day.

    I hope that feeling will come again, but on my last few visits sadly it has not. Waiting 30 minutes for eggs that came out cold, staff nowhere to be seen, watching other customers walking to the bar to ask for their bill. Waitresses more interested in pouring my Starbucks coffee into a different cup. Pleeeeeeease.

    The last straw was waiting 20 minutes for my favorite Niçoise salad. While waiting I noticed a Cafe of the Year award on the wall.....from 2010. How I long for the past. Is there any bread while I wait? No it's baking now....maybe it will be finished when you have customers in the restaurant?

    Finally my beloved salad arrived...and I discovered it is now served in a tiny side dish bowl.....for the original price. I guess all good things do come to an end :-(
