Based on real-life absurd encounters, experienced working in an array of food service and hospitality establishments, these sketches take us to various restaurants, bistros and cafés across the country. With a flair for diversity as the setting alternates between Canadian cities, the sharp dry wit is never served up the same way twice.

Servers, managers, cooks, busboys, dishwashers, locals, tourists, customers young and old all pay a visit to add a little spice to this tasty dish.

A little sweet, a little savoury, never predictable.
