I've been to Leah's in the past when in WA, last time, was 05/07. It was a Friday & there were customers being helped so I waited patiently for my turn but things were not progressing. The girls behind the counter seemed to have trouble with everything, the register wasn't working, the credit card processor was broken. It was extreme chaos. One of the girls went into the kitchen to get more help. Customers were frustrated with the lack of choices & the technical malfunctions. No one came to help. I was sitting patiently at one of the few tables when a van pulled up and a man came out, he immediately went behind the counter & helped the girls with the customers & proceeds to solve each problem methodically. I watched him repair the the register & credit cards, take care of customers, answering questions & clear the chaotic line of customers. It was like a ballet watching him weave in & out of the small, cramped space. I then ordered my lunch. I assumed he was the owner/manager but he actually started only a month ago. It was that experience that brought me back to Leah's on this trip. This was a mistake. It seems that the powers-that-be at Leah's bakery felt that retainment of good employees is not important. I was so bothered by my new experience that I am compelled to rehash it here. The store was dirty. There was not much of a selection. The soup was bad, sandwich on stale challah. I went into the kitchen.This place was a sty. The employees were dirty, the floor was filthy. The girl that waited on me was no where to be found & the others didn't speak English, I think. I was disturbed by this & left. I am saddened since there aren't many Kosher eateries. This place won't be a destination on my next visit. What happened to this place? I inquired over the weekend and was told that the owner is looking to close her business. No one knew what had happened to the young man that impressed me in May. All the locals said Leah's has a revolving door for employees.
Pros: none anymore
Cons: another kosher place that gets by thinking we are forced to eat there
