I share troutboy´s disappointment about the Crisco comments and have discussed them with many of JWalk´s loyal customers, who were also unimpressed. Morgan worked hard to promote the new cafe, saying nothing but nice things in person and in email. She heartily recommended that all of her customers welcome their "new neighborhood cafe". How sweet of her, and how foolish to slam a cafe that had earned such a loyal (& local - we all work around here) following.I´d boycotted Stella´s for that very reason until today, when I found myself lunchless and carless. Sigh, off to Stella´s I went. My lunch, and that of my friend, was unimpressive. Bread toasted so lightly it came across as stale. The cookie dry and tasteless. The tofu barely marinated, also tasteless (we are not new to tofu). Look, the sad truth is that Tony didn´t have editorial review of the article before it was published. He might´ve made an offhanded, innocuous comment about the Crisco, very likely in response to the reporter´s prompting. I get that. But the end result is that it just didn´t set well with me, and I really needed to be blown away today in order to talk myself out of being pissed off about it. I wasn´t blown. I wish no ill will to Stella´s but I´ll be enjoying the reliable yumminess at High Nooner.
Inlander, you really screwed the pooch on this one. I agree with most of the other comments - it´s clear you´ve got something against Halletts. Nothing redeeming? At all? That just doesn´t resonate. I think Spokane chocolate eaters are more discerning than to let a sub-par business stick around for as long as Halletts has. They obviously have the affection, trust and taste buds of our community. You guys need to do a reality check (& an apology - come on, this is a small, local business you´re bashing).
