Our service while visiting was ok from the young man who helped us at our table. We had a problem with a credit card charge and upon calling the store to speak to someone about it the woman on the phone was incredibly rude and unhelpful. I will NOT be back, nor would I recommend you go.

I came here to see if this place was as bad as the reviews say. They're all true. I walked in with my friend and the owner gave us dirty looks and acted as if we were and inconvenience just as another user said, not to mention she rolled her eyes when we asked for milkshakes. i ordered a strawberry milkshake, and it was in no way a milkshake; more like cold milk with clumps of syrup in it. You think you would get more quality after spending $4 (and it wasn't even a large size). I don't know how anybody would enjoy coming back here when the lady who runs the place is always so grumpy. word to the wise: DON'T WASTE YOUR TIME OR MONEY HERE.

They have great prices and they just do.yes i would recommend them to people who like sweets such as myself... Tip: if you are getting ice-cream ask for the flavor called black forest

From the reviews I read, you either love Gourmet Junction or hate it. I can't help thinking that now that the politics of Plainfield (the owner's husband is no longer mayor) is out of the way, there may be fewer bad reviews. Also, as with the Whole Foods and Wild Oats debacle (where the owner of Whole Foods maligned Wild Oats so he could take the stores over) there does seem to be some nasty competition in town. That being said, Gourmet Junction is not for everyone. It sometimes seems to be from a bygone era, where people in a small town would congregate, sit a while and catch up on local affairs. This is not a fast food place. And for many of us that adds to the charm. The owner prepares the food to order, and incorporates some of her gourmet items into her recipes. I have personally never had a bad meal there.The items in her shop are interesting and eclectic. The mood is very casual - as it is in many small shops in small towns throughout the country. I always feel that I am on vacation when I walk into the Gourmet Junction. BTW - check out the names of reviewers who hate the place!

In spite of reading some of the bad reviews of this place on line, I took a couple of my friends here around Easter 2009. Well, the woman working behind the counter (the owner? an older woman with obviously dyed black hair) and the woman at the door (an older woman with a rather unpleasant disposition) acted as if my friends and I were an inconvenience! They made my friends feel uncomfortable with their unwelcoming attitude. And even though they weren't welcoming, they seemed to be at our table an awful lot (hovering about), which took away from OUR time together (really sad because we don't see each other very often). Now, the food wasn't as bad as the service. I had the American Dream Sandwich (minus the mayo), and I had to take off some of the turkey, because it was a rather thick sandwich. IF I was to go back (I'm not), I would also order it without the champagne mustard. The sandwich lunch came with a delicious brownie and fruit.

SO... if you're thinking of going but are unsure because of the bad reviews--believe them.

Have been in a few times and other than the owner (who is the Mayor's wife ) is rude and did I say rude. She was behind the counter talking over the waiting customers to what seemed like a friend. The line was just 2 peeps deep and she ( the owner) was more concerned with gossip.
NOt a spot we will re-visit. The ice-cream wasn't all that wonderful and the ambiance was pretty dated and lifeless. This one's a thumbs way way down.

I've been hearing alot about this place as of late so I checked the internet and came across these reviews.
Geez, the slander. I will stay the course and see for myself if everything is as good as I am hearing in the neighborhood.
It seems that this lady shouldn't have to bear these nasty reviews just because of who her husband is. Grow up people!

From gourmet gift items to wonderful high tea events, there's a little of everything at Gourmet Junction. If you prefer shopping at cookie-cutter stripmall stores, Gourmet Junction is not for you. There's always something new and unique available - from table scarves to purses, teapots to jewelry. The shop is old fashioned in the appealing, vintage way with tin ceiling and wood floors in a historic building.

I have never been disappointed with Gourmet Junction. The food is always fresh and tasty and the service is beyond reproach. This shop has been part of our community for a very long time. It is a wonderful place to sit, sip and shop. You will never get tired or bored when you visit this store. It is chock full of items for young and not so young! There is something for everybody and Mary Ann is very generous with her time and her assistance. We are having a tea party for our daughter's 21st birthday at Gourmet Junction in May and we are really looking forward to a special time. I believe we are going to have a wonderful day with spectacular tea and treats.

I went in to Gourmet Junction one afternoon on my lunch break for a "gourmet coffee." The employee couldn't get the cappuccino machine to function properly, so she called the owner, who was in the back room, for help. In front of me, the customer, the owner berated the employee for being incompetent. The owner then tried to get the machine to work herself, but could not. The owner yelled at the employee and blamed HER for the machine's malfunction saying, "if she cleaned and took care of the equipment, things would not break down." The owner stormed away without acknowledging me, no apology, NOTHING. The embarrassed (and unfairly harassed) employee turned to me, apologized and told me that the owner was the Mayor of Plainfield's wife and "was under a lot of stress." Does "stress" give her the right to freak out unjustly at her employee, all the while doing so in front of a customer? I certainly DO NOT think so. Needless to say I left WITHOUT coffee or anything else and WILL NOT RETURN. If you want rude customer service, Gourmet Junction is the place for you.

These people need to spend a little money on an exterminator. I don't want to go into detail because it would make you sick. Just stay away.

Never again!

I purchased a basket of assorted items from this shop to gift to a friend, and to my horror, there was a dead beatle inside the packaging that could not be seen until the basket was opened. I am still extremly embarrassed although my friend ensured me that these things happen. We agreed that the best course of action would be for me to return the basket to store. Upon returning to the store the Woman behind the counter told me that it was impossible and that the bug must have got into the basket while in my possession and that there would be no oppertunity for return or refund. I was outraged! When I expressed my displeasure, I was told that she was the Mayor's wife and that I would sorry if I tried to raise issue with her. Needless to say, I will never return to Gourmet Junction!

I always get warm fuzzies when coming into the Gourmet Junction.
Her chicken salad sandwhiches are out of this world! The chicken soup is PERFECT, not overly salted like other places.
The Ladies are so nice and accomidating to your needs and strive to make your visit memorable.
I recently perchased an tea pot with a tea flower that opens up in side so Beautiful! this place has got so much to look at and really amazing things!
When ever you are in downtown Plainfield, Stop in for a sandwhich and pick-up any kind of gift for that up coming Birthday or special event. Hey, try booking a Tea Party for a Baby shower, Bridal shower or Red Hat Society.
What ever the occassion I am sure you will find what you need here!
