The Saddest Vanilla Bean

For a restaurant name as sweet and cute as "Vanilla Bean" (Adamson Center, Leviste St., Salcedo Village), its a sad sad place to eat in. I don't know if its just bad timing but out of the three times I've eaten there, there always seems to be an unhappy scenario. First I witnessed the owner shout at the a waiter for not properly pronouncing the name of a dish. On my second visit, the cashier was barking orders at someone who looked like an OJT because the place wasn't clean. Last Friday, the waitress didn't care much for our order and took it from the counter without going to our table. Tsk tsk tsk. Talk about really unhappy staff =( The food's great though (love the apple pie and the dishes are tasty) but being surrounded by negative energy is enough for you to loose your appetite...but if you're on a diet or practice shadenfreude, then this might just be the place for you.
