Bulldog Coffee: Bitchslap

Brace Yourself.

Bulldog Coffee is a boutique espresso bar revered by some for its bold, delicious coffees and despised by others for its even bolder and rather abrasive staff. This postcard captured the ‘Bulldog experience’ from both perspectives at once and was quickly snapped up by those in the know.

I've heard of places that have a reputation of "rude" staff. I'm just not sure if that's the best route to take. That said, the card is interesting and would catch your eye if you knew the coffee shop. But probably only if they knew the coffee shop.

Doin' it for the points

I wouldn't recommend associating your design to this place.

The owner was super rude and don't respect their customer!!!

I got up to the owner to order my coffee, I excitedly told him I saw them on the show, told him how I thought the cafe looks great. I happily asked if he could recommend me a drink. Instead of appreciating the fact that I was paying them a compliment, he snapped snobbishly at me saying"ahum.. that's not the way it works here...i put in a shot of espresso and your job is to pick which cup size you want. You see..I won some XXX coffee reward (pointed at 1 small plaque from 2005 on the wall ) and that's not how I run my business"...clearly my excitement about the place was gone... geezz all I wanted was coffee... plus the design on the coffee was so sloppy.

Isn't that one of the CD's on the piece? I guess this is pretend work.

As a righty, the left hand slap bothers me for some reason.
