I have frequented this place for over thirty years. The food has always been excellent, their baked goods wonderful, coffee hot and fresh. I have never had a problem with service or disappointed by the workers, the food, or the atmosphere. I usually have the sandwiches and they are made to order. The egg and chicken salad is delicious. Their groceries are unique and just browsing the products is fun and interesting. It's a really nice place to have a patio lunch in a park like setting. I highly recommend Pierre Lafond's. I can't believe the negative reviews here which prompted me to write this one after all of these years. John J.D

While I continue to shop at Wendy Foster and the other stores in this complex, I pass on the Pierre Lafond deli. At one time the prepared food was quite good, but in recent years the quality has suffered. The service was never great, but on my last few visits the service was shockingly rude. The staff acts like they resent the customers, and routinely overcharge on orders. There is no justification for treating customers with disrespect.

Yesterday, on a hot Sunday afternoon, my wife and I stopped at Pierre Lafond for some tea and cake. While waiting to order, the clerk had his back to us, chatting to his fellow workers. After my third "Excuse me?" he turned to us without a word: no "How are you folks?" or "Can I help you?" - just a cold stare until I placed my order for a slice of mousse cake and a brownie. When I went up to pay, I was handed a small plastic container - the cake and the brownie were both crammed in there, squashed together. It took a while to separate them but the "service" and the spoiled presentation meant that our pleasant afternoon snack was anything but. I'd heard about the slapdash service at this place and wouldn't recommend it to anyone.
