I was shocked to see the horrible decline at Bumble! I will never step foot in there again!
#1: We had reservation at 1pm and arrived at 12:20; we were told by the hostess there are no tables available until 1pm. While waiting there, we could clearly see empty tables available but she made us wait the 40 minutes. And even after we were seated at 1:00pm, there were still empty tables around us!
#2: It was a bright and beautiful sunny day but all the window shades were drawn closed and all lights inside were off, therefore creating this gloomy and claustrophobic "attic" atmosphere.
#3: The hostess was arranging the chairs around the table behind us and was literally banging the metal chairs so loud on the floor that we noticed all customers were turning heads to see what the noise was.
#4: The comfortable chairs/sofas have all been replaced with very uncomfortable metal chairs with narrow backs, making it even more uncomfortable to lean back and relax.
#5: Their menu items have been drastically reduced. The flat breads are gone, the salads that were so delicious before are now just 'so-so' and very bland.
#6: The sliced carrots in my child's meal was old and stale with black skin (old) and the soybean was wrinkled up (old) - not fresh at all whatsoever.
#7: The chicken wrap indicates, "shaved red onion" but you get thick sliced onion rings which overpower the taste of the whole wrap. The salad was so wet with dressing.
#8: We had two orders of chicken wraps and one order of sliders (kid's menu). They brought my child's sliders so late (because "they were cooking") that by the time they brought it, we were done with our wraps.
Unfortunately, we will never return there again and what a waste of $$ for the food and service.
Bumble was great. Great decor, cute fish in the fish tank will entertain young and not so young for sure. Very home like feeling, which I adored. The food was really good, especially the sunrise sandwich. And I loved their cappuccino.
Maybe not the best spot if you don’t like kids, but amazing if you have your own or don’t mind the noise.
This place is so lovely, cozy and friendly. The food is fine, but the ambiance is what makes it truly special. We had a wonderful time and if you have little ones, Bumble truly makes it very welcoming
Such a cute, cozy place- but we went there for lunch and it was extremely noisy. Lots of little ones screeching and banging silverware. I love kids but I couldn't even hear my friend across the table and there were a lot more young children than most restaurants. The food was OK- nothing special. Great service. Best thing is the atmosphere- I would go again if I could find a time when children didn't dominate the scene.
Very loud. Food not really good this time. Last year we had a better experience. Kinda hectic.
Service was good, everything else was average. Ambiance for which we chose this place was non-existent. Private party had overtaken the main room, the kitchen area was incredibly smelly and noisy, the only option was outside which again gets no points for ambiance. Great idea for play space and restaurant but doesn’t work as well in practice.
Met a friend for brunch. Love that there is a gluten-free waffle option. Wish there was also gluten free bread available so that I could try the avocado toast!
Friendly staff and quaint atmosphere. Will be back again soon!
Went here on a Saturday morning because they take reservations and we were afraid there would be wait at our other two options. Upon walking in, no one was at the greeting station so we waited a moment (no big deal) but as the hostess approached we did not even get a smile as she asked if we had a reservation. She asked if we wanted to sit outside or inside so we chose inside as it was a chilly morning out. As she led us to a tiny table right next to a big party with children lying on the floor on scattered throw pillows, my husband's face must have shown the panic he was feeling as one of the parents of aforementioned children took one of the pillows off the floor and placed it on the seat we were to sit it. The hostess then offered to seat us outside on the patio. If she had told us previously that the patio was heated and for adults only, we could have avoided that awkward encounter.
Anyway, I ordered the avocado toast to see what the fuss is all about and my husband ordered the breakfast burrito. I feel that $15 is a bit much for a slice of thick bread smeared with some avocado and arugula plus 2 slices of bacon, and the breakfast burrito was a little bland compared to others we have had. The salsa verde made it better but there was such a small amount of it on the side that we had to flag someone down to ask for more so my husband could finish his breakfast.
Bottom line, I wouldn't come back but if you have kids and want them to be able to roam freely or lie on the floor, then this might be the place for you.
Our experience was horrible, starting from the front of house who would only give us a table that fit the 3 of us if we promised to give it back in an hour. Bees and hornets surrounded our table the entire meal. The food was tasteless.
The best entrée is the pink waffle with bacon. I would never recommend this place to anyone.
The service is bad. The bathroom were dirty. The playroom was close and didn't tell us when we did the reservation. Not a high scale restaurant for Los Altos neighborhood. Very disappointed.
