CREAM PAN NEED TO HAVE MORE ITEMs MADE FOR AFTER WORK PEOPLE ESPECIALLY SINCE OPEN UNTIL 7PM!
Hope the Fountain Valley location has friendlier staff with better service and provides a more streamlined way to get platters than the Tustin location.
Tustin opened a line for grab-and-go trays (skipping the long line). I grabbed a tray, walked to the cashier (which the sign said to do) and was told I had to stand in line, that the “express line” was closed… all while she was WAITING for a customer to appear from the long line.
Tried reasoning with her; no luck.
That was final straw and I dropped the tray to the ground. While walking out, I saw an employee put the SAME TRAY back into the display case to sell!
Sean’s 100% right. No croissants are good enough to put up with the poor service at Cream Pan.
Sean sounds like a dildo.
