I am not one to write reviews, my experience at Cafe Bari was bad enough that i feel compelled to. Please, Saturday afternoon shoppers, if you are strolling along Broadway through Soho and feel like sitting down for a snack/ light meal, please walk past Bari. There is a Cafe Miro just a block away, and if worse comes to worse there is a million Starbucks that will be much more satisfying. We went in there because 1) it was right there and 2) it was crowded. We should have looked at the miserable entrees outside on display, and made a simple decision. But we didn't. For a $20 Veggie Burger with a dilapidated patty, a $12 appetizer of hummus, and some other mashed up miserable looking spreads was not only unappetizing, i was scared that after an incident with an incredibly rude waitress that my food had been contaminated. It looked that bad. To start, the waitress brought a glass full of water (the ice had melted) for my soda, when i sent it back, she informed me it was just water. I generally don't dilate Coke, do you? After i ordered, she brought out a beef burger, (fairly strict vegetarian here) i told her i ordered a veggie burger, she told me that i didn't. I was ready to leave, particularly after I saw the waitress recount the incident to the entire wait staff, hands flailing, pointing at our table. When she brought the veggie burger, and I thanked her. she barely spoke, nor made any eye contact. I did notice that this particular waitress had been upset by another table, probably because her ineptness and general lack of hospitality had been pointed out to her. We did not eat the rest of our food, our bill came to $50 for what was intended to be a snack, and we found ourselves completely disgusted by the way we had been treated. Overall, don't waste your time, money, morale, or generosity on this mess.
Cons: food, service, staff
