As a cake and cupcake lover, I was pleased by the white cake with coconut cupcake that I bought. It was quite large, moist, not too sweet and enjoyable. My father and I both are still raving about it. $2.50 is a bit much to pay for a cupcake but being that it is positively delicious, that is a small price to pay for something so good. I want yet another one.
I have tried some other bakeries in town and have found the one from Joans to be worth mentioning. Anything beats Sprinkles in Beverly Hills.
CONS: long line
Philipe French Dip sandwiches are good but they are not all that many say they are. I think the au-jus is a bit too salty and the bread quite flat in flavor. The prices are great for what one gets which makes the visit worth it. The macaroni salad is nice yet very simple as is the custard pudding.
I ordered a lamb sandwich and was not at all impressed, as it tasted greasy.
PROS: Great prices and service
CONS: salty au-jus
As referred by another orthodontist, Dr. Garlington consulted with me regarding my teeth and how to close the few spaces that I had. He told me that he could try to rectify my problem by making adjustable retainers in order to get my teeth back in shape. Dr. Garlington made a very comfortable retainer that fit with ease. Within two weeks, I noticed significant differences in the way that my teeth were setting. They moved drastically. For months now, I have been wearing my retainers religiously as well as visiting Dr. Garlington and am extremely please with the results. Whenever I am out on the town, I am always getting complimented on my smile and I am grateful for Dr. Garlington for helping me out.
Just Alterations does the best job in any and all alterations that I have seen. I tried to deal with Foasbergs for alterations but had to quit because they were way offer priced for what is done. Just Alterations is also expensive but they do such a proper job that no one can compare. I have never had any problems with my clothing ever being cut too short and/or too long. My garmets have always been available at the given time stated on my claim ticket. The staff is always so pleasant and always willing to assist. If ever a problem, they have always gone out of their way to help in all ways possible.
Olives has some of the best grub in this part of Long Beach. I love the simple selection of gourmet sandwiches and the quality of meats used. I also love the cold salads that they offer. My favorite is the tailgate slaw, as it is crispy and not salty. On occassion I have purchased a rotisserie chicken for dinner. I can honestly say that they have the best rotisserie chickens around, as they are seasoned properly, not fatty nor salty. I suggest that all purchase at least one to understand what I am talking about. As for the prices, they are comparable to those at Bristol Farms so they aren't high enough to scare one away.
Whenever my friends ask about Olives, I always tell them about the rotisserie chicken and sandwiches, which are a must.
When I discovered that I was allergic to nickel a dermatologist suggested that if I wanted to wear earrings to wear earrings made of stainless steel. I looked high and low for a nice simple pair that would not make me look like a freak. A friend suggested going to Somatic because they are not far from where I worked. I went in and consulted with one of the workers. She was more than helpful and made a few suggestions to satisfy my taste and style. I purchased a pair of small gauge hoops and to my surprise, the girl offered to put them in for me. It took a while to get them in but she was kind and patient and within minutes, they were in. I am ever so grateful to her, her spirit and patience. Somatic is a great store.
For many years I have shopped at Fingerprints to buy both new and used CDs, as there is always a grand selection to chose from. There has never been a time that I have walked out empty handed because of the vast selection of various genres.
Whenever a new import has been released, I have phoned the store to request a copy and within two days, I arrived for pick up. From time to time, the store has live acts perform for free as well as offering free promo items.
The staff is always more than willing to offer any assistance as well as smiling faces. Independant record shops are always the best places to find variety but Fingerprints takes the cake, seriously.
When I need a quick something from a hardware store, I don't go to Home Depot or Lowes, I go to Billings on second street. I have always been able to find what it is that I need and the staff is always willing to assist or even just get what I want whilst I stand at the counter. This store has a loyal customer following and rightfully so because of the staff. I have found their prices to be very reasonable being that Billings is an independant store.
As long as Billings will be around, I will continue to shop there. Go Billings!
I have been storing my belongings at Storco for many years now. I have never had a problem with the staff or not being able to access my unit. Never has my unit been broken into, as the staff does a great job in minding the lot.
Periodically I have checked the rates of other facilities to see if any are less and none are or have been. For this reason, I have remained loyal to Storco.
I can say that the staff is always pleasant and more than willing to assist when need be no matter where in the world I may be. They are always a phone call away.
PROS: great staff, clean facility
For years my friends and I have been shopping at various thrift stores and vintage clothing stores. Without driving far from home, we have been able to find stylish pieces at great prices. I have always been able to find pieces that actually fit (shoes and clothing) and look good on me. This store has a wide range of accessories (glasses, hats, shoes, handbags, scarves, ties, etc...), shoes and of course, clothing.
The staff is always everso pleasant and more than willing to assist. The best thing about shopping in Meow is that the staff doesn't hound customers as some other stores do. I like to be free to shop and browse without having unwanted items "suggested." Being in this store is also nice because the music is cool.
