The Sweet Service Award goes to Foxcroft in Constantia, which allowed me to enter during their split break (the door was open) yesterday afternoon, and to order a cappuccino. The coffee was made by supplier Tribe’s Christopher Gaag, who was at Foxcroft at the time, and contrary to Tribe’s flat white policy, he made me a dry cappuccino.
The Sour Service Award goes to Pontac Manor in Paarl, a guest house in which I spent a night during the Nederburg Auction. I was ignored when checking in, the manager sitting in an office off the reception and therefore he was unable to see guests, and was on a long call. The desk lamp in the room did not work, and I had to request a replacement bulb. The credit card machine did not work, instructing the manager to swipe my card instead of inserting it into the machine, and not accepting payment from it.
