Very good food with a large variety to – Good size bar with lots of nice tvs for watching sports and bar games to play. Food is also good for a dive bar. Poor location. Service varies depending on who's working, and if they're drunk or hungover or not. One of the smokiest places I've ever been to, and I have never seen people so wasted drunk on a regular basis. 90% of the people there are way overserved and just on another level, including on and off shift employees. The worst part about this bar is the owner. When he is there, he is always wasted belligerent drunk and harrassing employees, customers, or whoever gets in his way. The way he talks down to and about people is beyond words. I have personally witnessed and heard of him being fall down drunk and firing several employees and throwing faithful customers out for no reason, while causing a seen in front of an entire bar full of customers. Most of them must not end up actually losing their jobs though, because they're usually back. Very unprofessional, not to mention just a horrible way to treat people in general. Makes this place have a very uncomfortable atmosphere. So be prepared to witness things you've never seen before if you step foot in this place!
Cappucino's Cafe bad for Dunedin – Went shopping to Dunedin to cute little shops like Darling Memories,Amanda Austin and Rose Garden. Everyone in these shope were nice and welcoming. I wanted to end my shopping experience with a nice cup of Java.
Whe I walked to Cappucino's Bakery...I saw a couple of customers and once person working behind the counter so I decided to sit and but my bags down. When I sat on the counter...the lady working there didn't aknowledge me but I figure she was alone so I didn't take it personally. Since I really was craving my cup of Java I decided to patiently wait. After taking the order from customers she went to the back and dissapeared for 20 minutes.
At this point I really needed to go to the bathroom. When she came of to serve the people I asked if she can buzz me to the bathroom and she ignored me. I asked again and she SHOUTED at me and I saw a mean lady looking at me. She yelled"don't you see that I'm working alone here...if you need a public bathroom there's one around the corner". I metioned to her that I was a potential customer and I have been patient by waiting 20 minutes and she didn't have to yell at me and send me to a public bathroom. I've had my bags here and that she shouldn't abuse me for no reason.
After that...she yelled at me again and told me that I should leave her shop. SHe mentioned that she was the owne and I was shocked and couldn't believe that she was being so cruel to me for no apparent reason. She basically was taking out her job or personal frustrations on me. I was really shocked and like any women with some integrity I defended my case....and tol her that she was very cruel and bitter and that this is no way to treat a customer who has been patiently waiting. She then did the ultimate...she called the cops so they can escort me for no reason. Since it was so unfair...I figured I would wait and explain my side of the story to the cops...that I was basically waiting 20 minutes for a cup of Java and to use the bathroom and this lady was just cruel with me for no apparent cause...just being abusive towards me from her personal frustrations.
I decided to leaven and not let her ruin the wonderful experience I had with other merchant owners in the area. I saw her as being cruel, catty and bitter and left without take in it personally.
I have travelle all over the world and come from a family of restaurant owners and I ive that the owner of Cappuccino's Bakery a 0 out of 10 rating for cruelty, abuse, and and hateful energy. Have a spirit lady...it's Xmas. She is a lady Scroodge.
If you are visiting Dunedin...stay away if you are happy, attractive and fairly young because this witch will hate on you and give you ill treatment. She represents the haters of the world who hate the happy, sexy, beautiful and cheerful young women. STAY AWAY from the abuse. Oh by the way I saw she did the same to a customer on a Yahoo Travel Review....this MErchant will give Dunedin a bad name.
Prices – Saw the menu on Citysearch and ordered 50 wings. Picked up the order and they charge me $10 more than what was listed! Spoke to two different people and complained but they wouldn't adjust the bill. Pretty much "too bad for me" attitude!
It's a "Sport's Bar" not a Chuckee Cheese – The food isn't bad. Drink prices are average. If you want to eat, watch a game/sporting event they have two large TV's and many smaller other ones to watch it on. You are allowed to smoke there, so if you're a nazi-like non smoker, beware. However, they seem to have pretty good ventilation, and none of my non-smoker friends complained. Good place to hang out, grab some grub and beers.
Editorial Review by Citysearch Editors – Catch the game on one of 18 TVs, play pool or darts, or stop in for daily drink specials.
