A few things you should know prior to dining here:
1. We are a small team and we do homemade food, means that you will have to wait a little bit longer ... grandmother use to say 'good food need time' we hope you will enjoy it. And also means that sometime we can run out of food, or bread and we are forced to close the place for an hour or more (especially on a Saturday lunch time if very busy before the usual close at 3.30pm).
Tell us if you share the meal or not, and pick up all your tools (dishes, fork and knives and glasses) at the counter, the food will come to your table as soon as we can unless we are overwhelmed by people, please we are human being so be patience with yourself and with us
you order at the counter, pay at the end of your meal
tell us if you are allergic to anything, otherwise no changes allowed
try to understand that our food comes out separately, appetizer followed by entree followed by dessert, instead of coming out at the same time
it's a BYOB place! so you're welcome to bring your bottles no cork fee
some people are not receptive to what we do and why we keep prices so low, we will keep doing it but please some respect on your side also as a customer, Gaia is based on food not on service.
8. Our bread is homemade daily, we try to bake as much as we can however is a community sharing. you will receive the right amount but do not ask for more.
