Bonjour Brioche - shouldn't they know the price of a brioche??

Just wondering if anyone else has had the same experience at Bonjour Brioche... I've been several times for brunch, but this time stopped in for just a brioche on Sunday.

However, when I ordered my brioche the cashier didn't actually know how much the brioche cost. She said "I think it's around $4.50." I asked if she could find out the real price and she proceeded to ask a few other servers near the cash, but no one knew. She then left to find the manager, but couldn't... she came back and said "Everyone else says it's at least $4, so I'll charge you that." I was surprised that no one knew the cost of a brioche at Bonjour Brioche! Is this a common occurrence there?

  1. Not for me - perhaps the cashier was new? IMO, Bonjour Brioche's brioche, while not the best in the city, is the best for the money. I find them quite inexpensive compared to, for example, Ma Maison. I needed two large rectangular loaves of brioche a little while ago, and it would have cost me $18 at Ma Maison. It was $8 at Bonjour Brioche, and light, buttery, and perfectly crisp (when toasted in the oven, to be served with a foie gras torchon). Bonjour Brioche is not without its flaws, to be sure, but my positive experiences there most definitely outnumber the negative ones.

      All the reviews seem to say the food service and the food quality are diametrically opposite.
