I remember bringing my son into Coffee Beans and Bistro to use the bathroom so he could blow his nose. We had just walked from the Safeway area. I told him we could get a drink there if there was something healthy, (pure juice, no soda, etc.) While I waited outside the bathroom door for him, a young woman came from behind the counter and said, "Are you going to buy anything?" I said I wasn't sure. She told me I couldn't use the bathroom if I wasn't going to buy anything. I said again that I wasn't sure, (I hadn't checked what they had yet.)
When my son came out he and I looked and found apple juice, which we bought. As I paid I asked for the manager. She said he wasn't there. (I wanted to tell him that accosting people at the bathroom door was bad for business.)
My son and I sat outside with his drink and the girl came out. She said she was calling the manager for me (strange, I didn't ask her to) but he wasn't answering. She asked if there what the problem was and I told her. She said, "Admit it, you wouldn't have bought anything if I hadn't told you only paying customers can use the bathroom."
She was clearly angry. She gave me the manager's name (Charlie) and phone number, (which I hadn't asked for) and that was the last time I ever went to Coffee Beans and Bistro. Before that bizarre little incident I had gone frequently.

No it's not going to be a sports bar. It's going to be more like a typical restaurant.
