THE CAROUSEL CAFE IN CLIFTON, NJ - Review by kim y | Carousel Cafe

Carousel Cafe



I went into a cafe that I used to frequent often. I hadn't been there in a while and when I went in today, the place looked closed, empty and dank. I asked if they were open and a hispanic woman said yes they were. There was a television set on blaring a spanish channel which I don't particularly appreciate since I am not of hispanic descent. At any rate, I ordered soup (I know, I'm crazy since it's 95 degrees, LOL) and a bagel toasted with cream cheese. The woman had to go nextdoor to the bakery to get a bagel and when she returned with the bagel, she dropped it on the floor behind the counter. I was sitting at the counter and clearly saw it right in front of my eyes. She looked back and saw that I had witnessed her dropping the bagel on the floor and she gave the bagel to the cook to toast it. AFTER IT FELL ON THE FLOOR! I waited a few moments thinks maybe she would go back to the bakery and get me a bagel that had not fallen on the floor. I couldn't help but think, if that's what she does in front on the customers that she feeds then WHAT DON'T WE SEE. I was astounded and the cook little a but bewildered when she gave the bagel to him because he too, caught a glimpse of me when I made a face after I saw the bagel hit the floor. SORRY, NO 5 SECOND RULE WHEN PEOPLE ARE PAYING YOU TO EAT THERE! The place looked dirty and much different than it used to. The previous owners were Romanian I believe and always had their family members there and the place was always cheery and they WOULD NEVER FEED THEIR CUSTOMER FOOD OFF OF THE FLOOR! I am disgusted and appalled. Maybe where she is from this is acceptable but I will never step foot in there again! Wish the old owners stayed because I cannot see this place making it. more
