Facebook pages, including one "boycott" page pop up, while CEO explains closures.
While Caribou Coffee is planning to shutter some stores and reopen others as Peet’s Coffee & Tea, customers across the country are commiserating online about the loss of their Biscotti Mochas and Café Milan Lattes. Some were vocal about closings; others didn't want to see a changeover to Peet's. The company, in the meantime, is trying to minimalize negativity. The store’s Facebook page began deleting comments but postings today remain, primarily sympathizing with those who are losing their jobs. One “friend,” Jim Skinner, took offense to an April 8 posting promoting the stores breakfast items. “Out of respect for the employees who are losing their jobs the least you could do is stop these posts,” Skinner wrote. “No one cares about your …

My trip to Viva Fernando got off to a rocky start. We had selected the Westlake restaurant at 24600 Detroit Rd after it was featured on a list of Cleveland’s best patios, but the weather had other plans— a downpour drove us inside. I arrived at the restaurant a few minutes before my friend and quickly learned that I should have made a reservation. Fortunately, since there were only two of us, they were able to seat us.

When someone finally came to take our drink orders, I selected their very strong sangria and my friend had a beer. When we ordered dinner, I learned that many of the dishes come with a side of saffron rice, steamed vegetables, …
