The buttercrumb pretzel rolls delivered were not as pictured on the order form. I instead received 2 packages of pretzel hamburger rolls,
one of which was to be used by yesterday 9/29, and is now molding. And the publican Pullman loaf is dated to be used by today and has white spots on it. Only 1 /2 duck breast was delivered ( out of 1) and no chicken pot pies ( ordered 2).
Best to text customers to ask if they would still like the food if it is expiring on the day of the order, and best to text to ask if something else can substitute for items that are not available.
I think it is best to go to Local Foods to take advantage of their full offering of meats and to choose your own fresh baked goods.
