The BOYCOTT thread - who are you boycotting and why?
The place is Cruda Cafe in St. Lawrence Market. They have sold a bunch of vouchers on different websites. I have been there 10 + times and introduced friends to it. The owner was never really super friendly but they had some other staff there that was nice. The previous time before this last time I went they tried to charge me $2 for a takeout container even though I was eating in. Once I made it clear I was eating at the tables across their booth they waived the $2. Well, I went again on Saturday and they insisted there was a $2 charge for a plate/container for all voucher holders. They weren't charging normal customers this charge but just voucher holders. I feel that this price doesn't reflect the actual cost of the container and it was just a method to make more money off voucher holders. Again, a business shouldn't sell a voucher if they feel they can't make enough money off of it, or it isnt' a good marketing technique. I was reading reviews on Yelp and other voucher customers have said the same thing so their idea is definitely back firing on them. They also just added it into the price and didn't make it clear that the $2 was for containers. The balance seemed high then I realized what she had done. I also got over charged for an item by 50 cents but noticed that too and the lady tried to tell me they put the item in the wrong container even though the name of the item/price was written on the container.
So in summary
My Boycott: Cruda Cafe - lower level of St. Lawrence Market
Reason : shady way of dealing with voucher holders
