If you read about my experience in Roggen Meyer bakery cafe, you will know that I was disappointed that the waitress did not care about the bakery’s products.
Since then I have come across many examples of my students who are clearly concerned about their shop’s products. And I also received excellent service in two places in Fujieda, an izakaya called Yukichi, and a bar called The Alehouse.
In addition I discovered that one of my students now works at Roggen Meyer, so I asked if she could give me some information about Meyers pie. You can read her very interesting answer here:
‘Hello,Pat. I am a student who started to work at Roggen meyer three weeks ago.
I said I will tell you about Meyer’s pie last your class. I asked my seniors why the pastry is called Meyer’s pie. It is maybe a speciality of Roggen Meyer because most of products of this shop are specialities. I think that name means Roggen Meyer’s special PIE because we have only two pie products, apple pie and Meyer’s pie.’
It also clear that this student takes an interest in the products.
So now I have come across so many examples of good service I must think that the poor service in Roggen Meyer is a rare case, and that most young people try to give good service in their restaurants, shops and bars.
