Whadaya want? Service?

Bacon Cheese Egg sandwich

Whadaya want?

Here at Sparrows cafe in Beaufort we are all about service.

There is service and then there is service.

It is not always easy to match what people expect as far as service goes. Too nice, sometimes, too aloof other times and hell I thought I treated everyone the same?

Maybe that is the problem, maybe the key to good service is to be manipulative “Match needs with customers!” Maybe insincerity is what it all about. “Darling you are fabulous!”

Maybe we, all of  us are customers, are a little out of kilter with our expectations. Acknowledgement, polite respect and listening, from both serving staff & customer, is all that is really needed. Should not be hard but I suppose it involves people and peoples is hard.

My coffee is getting cold, next time.

Oven Progress report :)

It seems such a long way away until the middle of February when we can have this wood fire oven fired up for the first time. It is one of two we have planned for the building, it will be awesome when wood fired pizza, roasts and bread will be available in Beaufort.

While this is only one of  a few Wood fired ovens in Beaufort, this is certainly on the only one in a commercial kitchen, well almost we are still building that around the oven 🙂
