Time for a New Coffee Shop

A comment was made today on a post Sean made last year about the delicious banana espresso smoothies at Silver Lake Coffee.

I still love the espresso-banana smoothies at this place, but that’s the only reason I go there (infrequently) anymore. I think it changed ownership about a year ago, and since then it’s gone downhill. The wireless and computer servies are inconsistent, the food isn’t as good as it used to be, and the staff is inconsistent. Save your money.

Unfortunately, what this commentor says is the truth. As much as it pains me to say it, Silver Lake Coffee has gone way down the tubes. Once my favorite spot in town to get a Chai Latte, the aformentioned banana espresso smoothie, and other coffee delights, it’s now simply mediocre if not horrible. Inside sources (i.e. former workers who I got to know by frequenting the place so much) have told me that it is indeed the new owners that have caused this lack of quality and disservice. Thus, these sources don’t work there anymore. And it’s bad. Now my Chai Lattes are nothing more than warm soy milk and a smoothie I had the other day tasted like cardboard. I wish I could say it was a one-time deal but it’s not. I mean, when Starbucks make a hella better latte, you know shit’s going downhill.
