I love quirky, off-the-beaten-path cafés with character, and BARbar did not disappoint. The atmosphere is very funky with a bit of sass, and the hot chocolate (I got milk with orange and cinnamon) was thick and delicious. However, we had the rudest service. Usually, I'm not one to complain about service, and especially not in a review of the establishment itself, but this was too out of the ordinary. Our waiter (I don't think he was part of the couple that runs the place) gave one-word, condescending answers to me when I inquired about the menu, slammed menus down when we asked for extras, and exuded an attitude that made it clear that he would rather be doing anything else in the world than dealing with us. He even turned off the Internet when we were the only customers in the café (there was one other table when we arrived, and when we heard them leave our Internet shut off, and only turned back on when we heard more people arrive), which I've never heard of anyone doing. To make matters worse, he was really, really nice to the next couple that came in, who asked for the same things I did (favorites on the menu, what he recommended) and got detailed recommendations from him.
However, I still loved the atmosphere and content of the café, so that's why I'm still giving 4 stars. Definitely pay this place a visit.
