Elephant Grind Coffee - unethical restaurant owner!

UPDATE: Proof of the metal found in the bottom left corner of the picture! I’m so glad I took this picture!

Please share this review with your foodie friends and on all of your social media platforms!

Small metal piece found in food. Richmond hill cafe owner shouted at customer “get out”! This behaviour is intolerable!

This group won't grumble about your experience unless you gave them some story about the restaurant refusing to accept your AMEX card....

The restaurant charges everything upfront including food and service charges (tips) before sitting down.

The restaurant owner responded very unprofessionally when we brought to his attention the issue of a small metal piece found in the food. We demanded for a refund but the owner refused to talk or listen and harshly shouted at my husband to “get out” pointing the restaurant door! It was extremely disrespectful!

Thank you op. I have never heard of this place so I will visit it.
A life spent making mistakes is not only more memorable, but more useful than a life spent doing nothing.

The business has been reported to both York Health Inspection and Toronto Public Health. If anyone thinks this is a joke, you can go experience it.

So do all the big cafes. Do you go to Starbucks and pay after you drink and eat?

He said he didn't capture a picture because he trusted the waitress or something like that.

Jesus Christ, talk about making a mountain out of a molehill. The Ministry of Health? Really? Get a grip. You survived, you were never in danger, and in the grand scheme of things, this was a non-event. Grow the hell up and move on; you sound like an overly dramatic fool.

Thank you everyone for your heartless comments! You have all made it possible to promote an unethical business! Clapping Hands Sign

If anyone ever gets sincerely hurt in the future, remember you are all part of it!

My family will definitely move on. I will leave the drama for future ignorant consumers. As for the business itself, only time will tell the truth.
