I had the extreme pleasure of having my 2000 Pontiac Gran Prix broken into right in front of where I live. After calling my insurance, they pointed me to these guys to get the repairs completed. I must admit that at first I was a little leary of the name of this business as it does sound like it's trying to overcompensate for shoddy work. After working with the folks in the front office and seeing the wonderful work they did, my opinion changed completely. They even detailed my whole car when it was done! That, and the repairs are under warranty for as long as I own the car, which is also very nice.
I've been bringing my dog and two cats to this clinic for about two years now. All in all, they do provide good, quality care for all three animals. The only issue I have with them is their tendency to rack up the charges on tests that include several undisclosed charges until all is said and done. I may be looking for a new vet soon because of this.
I've performed here with my band (SweetDuration) as well as been here on my own to grab some drinks with friends. They have good bar-type English foods available including the usual fish and chips, among others. If you're looking to catch international soccer games live, this is one of the local spots you can go.
Mim's is a great restaurant to hit up if you're looking for good American cuisine at a fair price. Be forewarned that the wait can get decently long on weekend nights. Call ahead to put your name on the list so you don't have to wait too long. Also, the service can sometimes be a little on the slow side, but it is well worth it for the food!
I have no problem with the food or coffee at this establishment, but I do have a big problem with its owner. On three occasions, I have performed at this coffee shop with my band, and on all three occasions have I been treated with the upmost disrespect. Customers seem to be at least tolerated, but almost unappreciated. I urge others to avoid any business that is owned and operated by someone who is basically a mean-spirited person--this business included.
I had these guys come out for some insurance work to find out what was wrong with my house heater. They quickly and professionally found the problem and replaced a faulty thermostat. I'll definitely be contacting them in the future to replace my home heater and air conditioner--I know they'll do a great job.
If you're looking for a nice local bar to just grab a drink and relax, this one is for you. I've played here with my band several times and we always have a good time surrounded by good drinks, good ambiance, and good people. You'll find a sampling of the local East Bay culture here.
I've been to this coffee shop several times both as a customer and as a musician performing. The coffee and atmosphere are great at this little place. I highly recommend the white hot chocolate--it's a favorite for all of us in my band each time we perform.
