According to recent Craigslist rants, it's not all rainbows and Cuban sandwiches at Old Montreal standby Olive + Gourmando. A disgruntled ex-staff member took to the food/beverage/hospitality section of the lo-tech classified ad website to "warn" prospective applicants of a "horrible experience": "If you have any talent, there are many more places to work, I would keep looking."

Supporters rushed to the popular café's defense. Stop crying, suggested one livid commenter. Another observer thinks the Montreal restaurant scene is just dysfunctional by nature.
