This Vitamin Cottage just moved to a new larger location and they carry the really hard to find natural food that even Whole Foods and/or Wild Oats don't have. I might be wrong, but I think all of their products are organic or at least all natural whereas the other stores have conventional products mixed in with the organic stuff. The place is clean and the staff is knowledgeable and friendly.
PROS: great products, great staff
The food at the Evergreen Sports Grill is pretty good - not the best but good enough that we go back every couple of months. The service is hit or miss but the prices are good. I was always unhappy that the smoking section was not separate from the rest of the place so that you could still smell the smoke but now with the smoking ban that is not a problem. The patio is cute and nice in the good weather.
PROS: decent food, good prices
CONS: service is iffy
Barbara (the owner) gives a nice haircut. She is also really friendly and is so nice and easy to talk to you leave feeling as if you have known her for years. Her prices are very good. True, you don't get the fancy salon experience but you get a good cut at a good price. And if you live in the area, it is so nice to have something close by and convenient.
PROS: good cuts, great price
The staff at Vision Care is top-notch - very friendly and knowledgeable. I have been going here for about 6 years and I have always felt confident in the care that I have received. The doctor is always willing to take the time to talk with me and answer any questions. They also have an enormaous variety of glasses for you to choose from in all price ranges.
PROS: friendly staff, lots of glasses
This store has the coolest things. If you need a gift for a child you will definitely find it here. They have all sorts of toys that are unique and lots of educational toys also. The items range from stuff for newborns to toys and games for much older kids. Also, the prices are very reasonable and the staff is helpful.
PROS: good prices, helpful staff, cool items
Dr Deal did a great job on my husband's and my teeth. We didn't have to wait long and he was very gentle. The office was small yet comfortable and the staff was friendly. They were nice enough to give us direction unasked and the whole experience was very no hassle. Dr Deal also has a clinic in the Bonnie Brae area.
PROS: nice, gentle, good service
I've taken several things to this dry cleaner and they have always had things done on time and have done a good job. i thought it was expensive but they are probably comparable to other dry cleaners and they are all more than I would like to pay. They also state that they are non-toxic which is important to me.
PROS: non-toxic, on time, good service
My grandmother is living at this facility and so far it seems really nice considering that it is a Medicaid facility. I know some of the facilities that you pay for are probably nicer but this facility is really great. It is always clean and the staff is always really nice and patient with the residents even though it seems they are understaffed. They always have things for the residents to do, they have a small beauty salon on site and a nice outside are for residents to sit outside. It would be nice if there were more staff to have more one-on-one attention but i guess for a state run facility you can't really expect that.
PROS: friendly staff, nice facility
CONS: somewhat understaffed
I brought my son here for allergy testing and I feel that the care he received was top notch even though his symptoms weren't unusual or all that serious. I've been to other "world class" allergy centers where I was made to feel I was wasting their time because I just had run of the mill allergies. Not at Children's! The staff were so friendly and even the obviously busy doctor took the time to talk to me and took me seriously. I also thought it was cool that they had staff in the waiting room whose sole job it was so play with the waiting kids and do arts and crafts with them. Just one example of the extra attention to detail that set them apart.
PROS: too many to list!
When I worked close by I used to go here often for beauty treatments. The old building is really cool and it is beautiful inside. The services I received were always done very well but the staff is a little snooty. The prices are comparable to other high class spas but of course more expensive that regular salons.
PROS: great treatments, lovely building
CONS: snooty staff
