Fine place for sandwiches and espresso drinks – The sandwiches are always fresh and the espresso drinks are smooth and strong. There is always a good selection of soups to choose from. When I take my son there, he gets the choclate chip cookie that is the size of a pizza so I volunteer to help him finish the thing.
Awesome Lunch! – I frequently this establishment for lunch almost once a week and the service and food has always been good. The Soups are delicious and the salads are fresh. I really love their Lunch special, Half sandwich and soup or salad and my favorite is the Lentil soup.
HORRIBLE – Not only is Cafe Tazzina is an ANTI GLB establishment, they have horrible customer service, its crowded, with average food.
I work next door at UCLA and used to go there sometimes. I called one morning w/ a big breakfast order for me & my coworkers. When I was done the barista informed me they only had 3 bagles TOTAL in house they would not be able to fill the order, so when I asked to give a new order the barista scoffed at me and acted pissed off. I very politely told him that I was calling from UCLA & that we order food from them all the time. His exact words were "What is your point in telling me that?" in the most sarcastic tone he could muster. Needless to say I hung up the phone. I was hoping he may retract his rudness once he found out that I was calling from a place that probably contributes to 50% of their income. I guess he doesnt care that customers are what support his livelyhood?!
After sharing this story with a co-worker she told me the true horror story about Tazzina. After proudly displaying their VOTE YES ON PROP 8 sign, my coworkers dept. got together and wrote a polite letter to the owner asking her to take it down, because alot of people found it offensive. The owner wrote a letter back. Her response, amoungst many other ignorent things, was that she feels that marrying someone who is Gay is the equivilant of marrying a GERMAN SHEPARD! That is how the Biggot owner of Cafe Tazzina feels about her fellow human beings!
Cafe Hate should just close. After hearing this I and many of my co workers vowed to never spend another penny in that place!
DISCRIMINATORS – they supported "YES on 8" by displaying a sign in their window. They discriminate- Don't support these h8ters.
Highly recommend them! Fabulous food, friendly atmosphere and great prices! – Fabulous food and service. This cafe has become our new favorite place to eat. It has a very friendly atmosphere, great prices and good food. I highly recommend them.
disappointment in ownership – Despite my business with this cafe in the past, the owner has promoted in her cafe anti-civil rights. During the November 2008 election she posted and openly supported proposition 8. She believes that same gender couples in the state of California do not recieve equal rights. Further, she has refused to answer my or other customers emails and requests for a conversation on this issue.
I will not support a business owner who uses my hard earned money to publicize her hate in her store.
