Fresco freebie

Had a call this afternoon to tell me I was a winner. It's the type of telephone call I like but on further investigation, my success was pretty small fry. The call came from those fine folks at Cafe Fresco and I was now the proud owner of a $10 voucher, as one of the runners-up in their on-going monthly draw to reward their customers, which has a top prize of a free 2-night stay at the FCC Angkor hotel. You can enter their draw if you spend $5 or more in any one visit. At their prices, you can't help but spend that amount. But beggars can't be choosers and anything free is always welcome. I frequent the BKK Fresco on a very regular basis and though I haven't managed the big prize yet, my fingers are crossed. A nice break in Siem Reap is just what the doctor ordered. You may recall that I wasn't happy when Fresco's completely changed their waiting staff a few months ago. However, I'm pleased to report that the new staff have quickly got up to speed and they always make me feel welcome, even though they still raise an eyebrow when I ask for 4 sugars in my latte.

Average and over-priced. You should try Brown which is locally owned and run and of a surprisingly much higher standard.

Anon, we all have our own favourites for our own reasons.

And today Fresco's gave me a free umbrella, so I don't get wet when walking to and from my office - now that's what I call service. Especially with all these afternoon showers we're having now.
