Post subject:  Not bewitched by the Kitchen Witch!

We had a bizarre and disappointing experience recently at the 'Kitchen Witch', near Kensington, PEI. Although the free drink refills were appreciated, meals were slow to arrive, and portions 'slender.' More annoying was the owner's behaviour: she would not leave us to eat our meal in peace, hovering intrusively at the table and constantly talking, long past the point where it was welcome. What we initially took for 'Island friendliness' gradually descended into annoying over-friendliness, and then into outright cheek. We were asked repeatedly to nominate the cafe for an award, with business cards pressed upon us for emphasis. Then, unbelievably, after paying the bill (well over $100), including a decent, healthy-sized tip, the owner later surreptitiously approached another diner in our party, claiming the tip left had been too small, in view of "all she (the owner) had done for us"! (To be clear, she had done nothing unusual for us at all, beyond talking incessantly). The unsuspecting diner approached was embarrassed into leaving an additional $20 tip. We are completely horrified by such disgustingly rude, underhanded and greedy behaviour! What to tip is at the discretion of the customer, to reward good service, not that of the restaurant owner, to be taken for granted and then disparaged. Needless to say, we were not exactly enchanted by the the Kitchen Witch; my family will not be back.

....... and the dead Ford Taurus in the number one parking spot with the weeds growing up both side does not enhance the place either.

The place is vastly overrated in reviews (likely submitted under duress from the owner). Much nicer place to eat, that do a much better job of representing the Island.
