The Sweet Service Award goes to Dinkel Bakery and its staff member Cain, who regularly offers fantastic service. Recently he was on leave in Zimbabwe. I messaged him via Messenger, not knowing that he was on leave. He passed the message on to his Dinkel colleague, who had poppyseed rolls ready for me to collect. Whenever I want rolls, I message him.
The Sour Service Award goes to Woolworths. I love the retailer’s Cheese and Tomato sandwiches, which the Piazza da Luz Branch has made with its Tante Anna bread. Now an instruction has been received from its Head Office that it must use whole-wheat bread for these sandwiches, not tasting as good as those made with the Tante Anna bread! No explanation has been provided for this instruction.
