Re: “Fish, Aquariums & Stuff

I went into this store with my 2 young boys and was immediately greeted with the owner Judy yelling at my child to not touch the fish tanks and then she proceeded to tell me, " looks like I am going to have to put up a sign to tell parents to control their kids!" baffled by what she had just said to me, I continued shopping, keeping a close eye on my children. I waited for over 10 minutes and not one employee, not even Judy would help me. I called to speak with a manager or the owners to lodge a complaint as I was driving away. I got Judy on the phone who again told me I need to learn how to control my children! I couldn't believe that she would talk to a customer that way and told her I would never go back to her store again! Sad thing is, I usually enjoy helping out small local businesses, but went to PetSmart instead where I received acceptional customer service!

Re: “High Desert Harley-Davidson

I am curious if this dealership has attempted to resolve your issue?
Have you made any progress with them?

Re: “Dawson's Downtown

In addition to serving up tasty liquid crack and artfully crafted espresso drinks, the fine folks at D's spread good will and cheer 364 days a year to loyal patrons that span the breadth of the socio-economic spectrum.

From Power Brokers to La Bohème.

If you're looking for safe, predictable and sterile, there's an - almost always empty - Thomas Hammer Coffee shop directly across the street. Though, you might run into Governor Butch Otter there.

Re: “Boise Co-op North End

While I have enjoyed some real treats from the Co-op, the arrogant attitude displayed by the majority of the employees prevent my return.

Hint to employees: Non-members pay more! That is what funds your salary, not
a grant from Obama or sales of Pravda.

Whole Foods will bury the Co-op, and many will say good riddance.

Re: “Treasure Valley Fitness

I LOVE this gym and have been a member for over a year now. TVF offers a vast array of fabulous classes to keep my interest and the staff has always been friendly and helpful. The interior of the gym has been undergoing maintenence remodels and aesthetic upgrades to better accomodate it's members. At 38 years old, I am in the best shape of my life thanks to this place. I just wish I could take more of the classes that are offered (they are always adding something new) but realistically, I can't fit everything into my schedule.
Keep up the great job TVF, you guys are awesome!

Re: “Floating Feather Day Spa

Floating Feather is seriously one of my favorite places to be in Boise! Every service I've had there has been a positive experience. I had a 1hr and 30min massage and it was worth every penny. I can't remember the gal's name that massaged me but she was wonderful! What's even better is that they gave me a complimentary make-up refresh after my service! They also support local businesses which is wonderful. I go back every month! If you want great nails go see Joellee!

Re: “Moxie Java-Hillcrest

This is now by far my favorite Moxie Java. The new owner has completely changed everything. She has brought in nicer furniture, allows reservations of the stage area (or even the entire restaurant) for gatherings, is very supportive of other business owners (especially women business owners), and not only has free wi-fi but even has printer services. Her fresh made-to-order deli-style food is always yummy! The number listed above is wrong though... the correct phone number is 323-5578.. I had to look it up on the Moxie Java website!

Re: “Cracker Barrel

great down home food at reasonable prices with a wonderful decor & fireplace & a gift shop that is to die for for anything nostalgic that you remember from your childhood--be it candy or food or toys or tv show dvds or knick knacks or whatever--you could spend a couple of hours in the gift shop alone! fun to hit this before or after a movie at edwards theater on cole/overland.

Re: “Library Coffeehouse

This coffeehouse is a great option for those who love Rembrants in Eagle but live in Meridian! The atmosphere is cozy and the coffee is wonderful. I just wish I lived a bit closer.

Re: “Groove Coffee, Espresso & Wine Cafe

Nice little coffee shop. The staff is friendly and the location is comfortable. They make a nice Mexican Mocha and the kids always enjoy the hot cocoa. Nice alternative to the Tullys in Fred Meyers.

Re: “Idaho Athletic Club

To: "Q"
Thank you for your comments. I am trying to eliminate this from happening to someone else, especially a child. It is something you cannot see or even smell, but can do great harm to the body in a matter of minutes. it's been 19 days since I was burned from the hot tub at the Lake Harbor facility and my skin is finally beginning to heal. I do not wish this on anyone, the thing that gets me most is that the IAC management did not even drain or clean the Hot Tub after this incident was reported, it was more important for them to continue selling more memberships instead of being concerned with the welfare of the many loyal members that use the facility!.

Re: “Idaho Athletic Club

To Agent007GolfGuy,

The chemicals used are liquid pool chlorine (usually 12% chlorine or bromine) and Hydrochloric acid. I heard about what happened the week that the hot tub was being faulty, and what happened was the device used to automatically detect and dispense the chemicals had reached a point so high that it reset and started calculating again, similar to a dial gauge going around again. The percentage of hydrochloric acid was extremely high and that is what caused the burns.

Re: “Le Cafe de Paris

Le Cafe will always have a place in my heart, but the last three evenings I have been in to share a dessert, I have been incredibly disappointed with the service. The waitress (same one) has obviously been in a hurry to close early on a Saturday evening and spent the majority of her time flirting with customers or chatting with friends instead of serving us. Obviously this doesn't invalidate the entire establishment, but it has been frustrating.

Re: “Le Cafe de Paris

As I age, I have found that I am experiencing less ‘Perfect Days’ than I did when I was younger. Between the ages of 7 – 11, they were the rule rather than the exception to.

Today, however, was one – perfect that is. It was overcast, gray, but not too wet Monday morning. It was the 4th of October but it was the first day that actually felt like autumn (fall has become my favorite time of year as opposed to summer when I was a younger man). I needed to meet with a client to tweak her new website and we both were in the mood for a light breakfast.

I got to choose the spot and I was in the mood for good house coffee, buttery eggs, flavorful breakfast potatoes and crispy, thick lean bacon. Now there are a couple Boise eateries that can fill most and sometimes, even, all that bill; but none can claim the next two items only offered by Le Café De Paris: fresh, in-house made, aromatic, European, east coast bakery – Artisan bread and Pastries. Add these two items to your requirement list and all other establishments fall away.

Nestled right downtown Boise, across from the capitol building and just at the edge of the office district (read: a parking spot is always available nearby) Le Café De Paris is truly a Treasure ‘hidden’ in plain sight. I was running a few minutes late and arrived to find the owner visiting with my client at our table. I was immediately greeted warmly by the hostess/waitress and the owner as he graciously excused himself and wished us bon appetite. There were plenty of available tables at 9:30AM but nearly none by the time we made our departure at eleven.

The breakfast I described above was perfection and not a tad less exceptional than identical orders I’ve had there a half dozen times before (on weekends I am more experimental and will order new items knowing that even if I were to be disappointed, which I never have been; I could correct the situation by ordering one of their incomparable nutella croissants.)

Our meal lasted about 30 minutes and then we proceeded to break out our laptops and get down to business. Although I would not presume to keep our table if there had been a line, we were made to feel doubly welcome by our waitress who continually kept our delicious coffee hot and our water glasses filled. My meal was $8 and I promised our waitress a good tip for her graciousness in an effort to alleviate my guilt for having taken up a table for so long for a relatively small order. She good naturedly reassured me we were fine and as we readied ourselves to finally (and wistfully) leave… she filled my travel mug with one more cup of their excellent French joe. That, my friend, was the topper and made a great morning – PERFECT.
