My grandmother and I stop in to Halepaska's when in Victoria shopping every now and then. We went just this last Thursday, and I have never received bad service there until that day. The two (very young) girls behind the counter were actually rude to my 84-year old grandmother and didn't have patience with her when she couldn't hear them (she has hearing aids and can hear quite well with them if a person is speaking normally - these girls were sullen and mumbling and didn't even look her or myself in the eye when speaking).
It is sad to say, but I will definitely think twice before going there again. The pastries are always excellent; in fact, I bought my grandmother's last birthday cake there and it was just as I ordered and delicious. But I was so put off by these little girls that I am not sure I ever want to spend any money there again. I would have complained to the manager, but it appeared nobody else was there to watch over these girls, and I sure wasn't going to ask them to fetch the manager; I had enough interaction with them already.
Will I return to Halepaska's (this was the one on corner of the loop & John Stockbauer)? I doubt it.
Halepaskas is wonderful. My grandmother use to make divinity and taught me, however, she taught me in west Texas and when I make it here the humidity makes it sticky. Sooooooo I will swing by for a little piece of heaven and remember my grandmother and the smell of her kitchen at Christmas. Thanks for sharing.
