‘Baked Expectations’: A Coffee Shop Or Perhaps A Den Of Thieves?!!

‘Baked Expectations’: A Coffee Shop Or Perhaps A Den Of Thieves?!!

THE DIRTY ARMY: Baked Expectations is a coffee shop on Osborne Village, Winnipeg, but it might also be a den of thieves, based on my own terrible recent experience there… A few weeks ago I went there with a few friends. Service was bad, and one of us found a hair in his cake. But it is what came next that really shocked me. We all left at their closing time, with me forgetting behind, on the table, my small wallet and a pair of expensive sunglasses. I came back the day after, and was referred to the owner, a scary looking short and fat woman whose name, I later found out, is BETH GRUBERT. She said they have found my wallet, but not my glasses. She pulled it not out from any lost & found box, as I expected, but rather out of her own purse. When I got home I realized that all the cash I had there was somehow gone. I went back to the store to speak to this Beth. She now became rude and aggressive and said that she handed me the wallet back exactly as found. I then noticed that she is wearing my glasses. When I suggested the glasses are mine, she denied it, turned red, and quickly threw me out of the store. I left to save myself the confrontation. I will never again go back to such a place, and thought of now alerting others too. I did some online research about her, afterwards. Her (late) father, Oscar, a wealthy Jewish businessman, apparently bought her this business years ago. And so, she is not a needy person and in fact comes from a seemingly good family. Why will she then behave like this? Is she sick (kleptomaniac), or is it simply a case of pure greed? This way or another, Be-ware my fellow Winnipeggers! !

    Place sucks anyway. Can get just as good cakes anywhere else for cheaper.

    Wait for this…:
    Last year the private Jewish school this Beth Grubert’s children were attending had to take legal action against her for an unpaid account.
    And she has inherited millions.
    She fought the case and unsurprisingly lost and had to pay the full amount.
    A shameless person, indeed!

    It’s unfortunate that your not old enough to keep track of your personal belongings my 4 year old nephew has the same issue , he thinks it’s some one else’s responsibility to find his misplaced items. You must realize that a restraunt or bar atmosphere is at the best of times not place to be leaving your things behind! And does not turn into the establishments responsibility to take care of those things for You!
    As for your hair in your food, I find that hard to believe given the circumstances and probably fell out of your own head during tour tantrum.
    Your sounding really bitter that your fashion model career didn’t turn out the way you wanted and feel it is your responsibility to rip people apart based on their appearance, like the modeling agency did with you. I go to Baked expectations on occasion and find the staff knowledgeable, friendly and very helpful. As for the food ,, I have never had a bad experience to date and have been going there for about 30 years.

      And there was also a pubic hair on the toilet sit there. What would you say to this, idiot?

    As is no surprise to all who know her, this Beth is divorced and single for many years.
    Ugly in so many ways, and not just at work.
    I’m not even sure she is a woman
    Take another look at the pic to see what I’m talking about.

    My daughter Anna works there , there’s been multiple times she had phoned me
    Upset on how this woman is treating her. My daughter does have history of depression and other psychological issues that she is working out and been taking medication for, but the way her boss treats her sometimes I think it would put my daughter back to where she was a few ago again. Beth is the meanest woman ever.

      Sorry to hear this.
      Put Beth herself on this website.
      Or encourage your girl to do so.
      Best of luck to both of you.

    Could tell she was a fat Jew just from the picture, stealing from the goyum

    This woman is absolutely insane
    I worked there very briefly and after experiencing the most ridiculous level of workplace bullying and essentially feeling like I was being hazed as a new employee by her immature staff I brought up the issue to her and she went mental and essentially told me I was lying

    What a stupid and pointless thing to lie about, you would think a business owner would be concerned with how her employees are conducting themselves

    I’ve also heard many other horror stories, and they seem to always be hiring and not able to keep staff (wonder why..)

    I am sorry for your experience. Not all business owners have integrity. I will not frequent this establishment again and will alert all I know to be loyal customers about this post.

    Beth has now turned 55, and I was just at her birthday party in her store.
    She has fully charged her own guests for all that we have ordered.
    That’s no way for someone to show hospitality.
    Her father must be spinning in his grave.
