Ana's Cafe is the best place to go for ice cream. They have a wide variety of homemade ice creams, as well as many options for the health-conscious. The prices are a bit high, but once you take a bite of the ice cream, it's well worth it. This is my son's favorite place to go for a treat. We are always treated very well, and my son feels special with the attention he gets when we go here. When you walk into Ana's, you don't feel like just any other customer; they take time with each and every person who walks in the door.
PROS: Friendly staff; amazing ice cream
CONS: Very cold; bring a sweater
From the outside, Cappuccino's doesn' t look as though it would be your first choice for a good dinner. The name implies coffee and desserts. But don't let that fool you. The food here is wonderful. The atmosphere is very cozy and homey. It is very family friendly, so I was able to enjoy dinner out with my young child. This restaurant is a great change from the same old places many of us find ourselves going to. It's affordable, and a wonderful place to enjoy a family dinner.
PlayMobil Funpark is a wonderful place to take your kids. First, you can't beat the price of $1 per person. Second, there is no time limit on how long you can stay. You are welcome to bring your own food, and there are tables for you to sit and eat. The set up is done so that the adults can sit at the tables, but still watch their children. There are staff members in the play area to assist the kids and to play with them.
My only complaint would be that the staff consists of young high-school aged kids who seem too intimidated to tell children to behave. Frequently, there are children running around or being destructive (and their parents are paying no attention), and the staff seem hesitant or unsure of how to handle this. Also, it is really easy for kids to escape or for someone to take a child that isn't theirs. I do wish they had more stringent safety guidelines in place.
PROS: Fun, cheap, safe
The barbers here do a wonderful job and get you out in a short amount of time. They are fast, friendly, and very affordable. It's a great place to take an older child, as they are great with kids as well as adults. I had to take my son for a haircut, and our usual place was too busy. I happened to pass by this barber salon and stopped in to see if they would do a child's hair. They made my son feel instantly at ease, and treated him like a little king. He loved it so much he wants to go here for all of his haircuts now. The atmosphere is very welcoming.
PROS: Wonderful service
I took my pet for his annual visit at Community Animal Hospital. Before our visit, I called and asked for the price of an exam, shots, and all tests we may face so that I had an idea of how much I was going to spend. When I arrived for my appointment, I was told about a test I'd have to pay for, but it was never mentioned in my phone call. Since it is a "routine" test, there is no reason I should not have been told about this prior to my vist.
The waiting time once in the exam room was unacceptable. The vet tech came in and out a few times, and I waited well over 20 minutes for the vet, even thought I was the only person in any of the exam rooms. Then, the vet spent most of the visit trying to sell me a variety of products, rather than focusing on my animal. When I thanked him for his recommendations, but said I'd prefer to research medications/treatments before I gave them to me pet, the vet acted as though I was being irresponsible just because I did not buy every product he was pushing on me.
The staff is friendly, but the focus at this clinic is on how much they can sell you, not how well they can care for your pet.
PROS: Friendly staff
CONS: Long wait; focus too much on selling products
This clinic is a great alternative to a busy, impersonal ER when you need to be seen, but the doctor's office is closed. Medexpress provides a very clean, professional atmosphere. There is hardly any wait at all to get into an exam room, or for the doctor to see you. They have the XRays and ultrasound machines on-site, so there is no need to worry about their ability to treat any and all problems. They do a great job of taking care of their patients.
This is the place to go if you are getting into gardening or landscaping. The staff are educated and caring. They are willing to take time with customers, making sure that customer gets what they need and what will work for them. I am new to gardening, and Domeinco's has helped make the learning process much easier for me.
This is a great place to relax and browse for books. There is a wide selection of used book, and at very affordable prices. The hours are somewhat limited, but other than that, it's a great place to shop for books.
PROS: Great selection
CONS: Limited hours
This is the place to go if you need a repair in a hurry. They do a great job of repairing any tennis racket, and they do it for a very affordable price.
The prices at this vet are very affordable compared to other local vets. The staff are friendly and helpful, and willing to explain the bill to you by breaking it down prior to the appointment, so you know what to expect. The doctor was gentle with our pet and very knowledgable about issues that this breed tends to face. The visit went well, and my very tempermental dog was calm and happy the whole time.
