This is my neighborhood drug store, and I frequent it often. They have a good selection of stock. I get my prescriptions elsewhere, however, as the pharmacy is slow and not always friendly. It is often difficult to find a clerk on the floor. But my biggest complaint is an older woman, sort, dark hair in a bun, possibly Philippina, who is very bossy and a bit rude. On the last visit, she was inappropriately bossy with me and treated the frail elderly woman in front of me in a confrontational and rude manner.
I'm not grading the quality of the massage. I'm rating the fact that they claim "walk-ins are welcome." Yet when I walked in, I could not be served. Before they told me this, they tried to up-sell me from the one hour to the 90 minute massage. Then they tried to get me to make an appointment for that evening or another day. I said no thank you, thanked them politely and left.
What a find! This hole-in-the-wall pizza and sandwich place in West Seattle (the Junction) serves up yummy pizza and sandwiches. Pizza is baked in rectangular pans and served by the 6" slice. The crust is light and fluffy (I'm so sick of thin, crispy crust), and the toppings are unique. Today I had the special: prosciutto, pear, gorgonzola and red onions. Wonderful combo of flavors. So glad this is in my neighborhood. It will be a go-to place when I want a quick bite. Limited seating (stools inside, a few tiny tables outside).
I am usually a Subway fan. But this one in my new neighborhood doesn't quite live up to my expectations. Pay attention or you may not get what you wanted. Tonight I was talking to another patron and got only lettuce when I had asked for "lettuce, tomato and onions." Subway is promoting avocado right now (in all the TV ads), but I have had the turkey-bacon-avocado sandwich three times, and they are extremely stingy with the avocado (the spread doesn't cover the bread). There is a language problem here. I don't care what language people speak, but I do think you need to speak well enough to handle orders, and I have found that to be a problem with the main worker. Not a good place to eat in - three stools at a counter by the window and one booth. Store is very small.
Nice variety of flavors, and there has been a definite improvement in keeping the dispenser full. The place is always clean, and the staff are friendly, but occasionally there is no one there to greet you when you enter. I enjoy Menchies immensely and feel the franchisee is working hard to make sure everything works well. (And my dog loves the water dish, too!)
The frozen yogurt is delicious, and all the toppings are great, Service is improving steadily, and the franchisee really tries to respond to feedback/complaints/ Occasionally there is still no one out front to greet you.. This is becoming an enjoyable stop for me when I am running errands in the Admiral District.
Boy, the reviews of Season range from low to high. For me, they gave me the worst hair cut I've ever had (and I wear a short, basic style). The stylist was less than friendly. I ran into her in public a month or so later, and she was talking (unfavorably) about "her clients." She didn't even recognize me or realize that I was one of them. I can understand having many clients and not recognizing one, but it's best not to say negative things at all since you never know to whom you're speaking.
Finally, a good haircut! This attractive, clean shop is an important part of the West Seattle community. All stylists live here, and the shop donates 10% of their profit to West Seattle charities. My stylist was friendly and made sure she understood what I wanted. Prices are reasonable, and their is a senior discount. You can make an appointment or walk in.
What a great little addition to the Junction! I can't eat pizza as I am Paleo and don't eat grain, but I love the Caprese Salad. The fresh mozzarella was excellent, as was the dressing. I complimented them on their presentation. I like the decor and enjoyed reading all the sayings on the way. The one by J.C. Penney (on wall by wood-burning stove) has always been one of my favorites. Service was excellent too. Place has a sense of class. And it's a bit more upscale - no noisy large families with kids. Glad they're here (and just don't get the negative reviews but respect everyone's right to their own opinion).
After writing a good review for this place, a month or two later, I changed my mind. I was treated rudely on more than one occasion by the owner - someone I previously thought was a lovely woman. I finally decided that even the great job on my nails was not worth suffering through her snide and hurtful remarks. Haven't been back since.
