Bristol has basically abandoned and shunned a small but loyal portion of his customer base who patronized his business since the very beginning in the early 90's. There are too many quality craft beer establishments popping up in our community, who want our business. That is where my dollars will now go. I used to love to go to the old tasting room on Tejon, because it was more intimate and the relationship between customers and staff made it homey. Since the move to Ivywild, our group feels largely ignored, Bristol and the new staff just want the almighty dollar. Go luck, Mike, it was fun while it lasted. I wont be back, and other longtime loyal customers feel the same way.
I'm all for The Pinery being a successful business. However, as a concerned neighbor of the business, I am concerned that each added business proposal will only lead to more infringements on our cozy little neighborhood. Already, though it was indicated at the initial meeting that parking lot lights would be established in such a way as to not infringe on the surrounding neighborhood, we spend the night with very bright lights beaming straight through our bedroom window. I hope the business is community-minded and wants to work with the community as a good neighbor and not just for the purpose of having higher revenues.
Andre we are so proud of you at the Rabbit Hole and we miss you
, it's hard to get a nice article from Mr. Crawford ;)
So I came in on Saturday and it was wonderful.
We beat th crowd, but your system for keeping things coming and the line moving worked just fine.
The coffee was hands down the best in town...really really just right, flavorful without being acidic.
The food was fresh from the oven...the empanadas were wonderful, especially when topped with your salsa.
I will be back...maybe even tomorrow!
Thanks for your hard work...you deserve to succeed, and we all need to support you so we can have a fun and delicious first class place like this in town..
Good morning Kyndra, there is no minimum to use the Wi-Fi. The empanadas come out by 11 am everyday.
Great...I'll be in. I do like it there, and perhaps you have improved the coffee over the former guy. Good luck! We all want you to succeed!
I'm confused. Is Wi-Fi free or not? Can't wait to try the empanadas...and hoping for some Peruvian ceviche!
Hello TejonTech and thanks for your opinion, but I have to say that we are here for the customers, and the FREE Wi-Fi with a 5.00 purchase it's now free. We will strive everyday to fulfill our customer needs, and hopefully your next review will reflect our commitment with these wonderful community, thanks.

The funny thing about this place is that it is always different than it appears...it is run for the benefit and out of the fantasy of the owners, and not really for the customers, other than those who obediently fawn over what the owner has in mind.
It is cliquish and loaded with funny little rules...like FREE Wi-Fi (with a $5 purchase).
Somehow coffee has become a side product in a Latino cafe...it is not just right for anyone except perhaps Pagan.
Been going to heart of Jerusalem for a year now. Always hot in there and the music drives me up the wall. Staff is not very friendly either, although I'd find it hard to be sociable in that swelter all day too. Great food though.
This guy Bryce should open his own place...I bet it would be awesome
It's a bar with pub food. It can be decent, but there is very little consistency. Burned one day but not the next. Stick with the pizza or a sandwich and a beer. The staff usually seems to have a "don't care" attitude.
Ate at Little Nepal last week...terrific, and they are so lovely to their customers while letting you eat and talk without intrusion...my family left very happy about the food and the experience. What God intended in creating so many spices, textures, and options!
Somehow these brew pubs like Trinity and the The Republic are so cliquish that craft beer lovers who have to attend to job and family don't seem devoted enough to warrant attention from the in-crowd servers at these places on their occasional night out with the guys.
I wouldn't trust food connected to the Underground to be much more than you describe.
For me...the Ivywild School rehab offers a much nicer and cleaner setting with proven food and beer for a cheaper price, nicer treatment, and a certainty that you won;t get food poisoning.
A fundraiser to benefit Adams Mountain Cafe and staff has been announced for Thursday, Aug., 22, 6 to 8:30 p.m. at the Margarita at PineCreek. $25 per person includes Bristol beers, tapas and small plates alongside live music. Seating is limited so call ahead (598-8667) to reserve.
I hope he continues to offer free wi-fi (with a five dollar purchase) as the sign on the door says...not sure how it is free if you have to spend $5, although I understand what the purpose is.
I haven't had a single bad meal from there in my MANY visits. Oh noes, it's a chain! Sorry if that cramps your street cred. It certainly doesn't mean it's not worth eating because they have more than one location. Weak.
Good News Food sounds great! I can't wait to try it!
Pretty sketchy...sort of looks like they hired panhandlers who really don't know what they are doing so what you get in your bowl is a total crap shoot.
I've eaten there several times and the only thing I like there is the Colorado Cheese Steak sandwich that you can only get during the lunch service.
