Being a gluten free vegan, I was excited to happen upon Zero 8. We came in and were seated, my friend had brought in a green tea she had gotten from a cafe down the street in with her and was just finishing it off. The waitress curtly informed her she was not allowed to have it in the restaurant, and moved to take it. My friend was a bit surprised, and firmly told her that she would finish it outside if need be. The waitress started explaining that the restaurant was for people who suffered allergies, and that was why she needed to remove the drink as quickly as possible, then left to serve the other couple in the restaurant. My friend went to the washroom, and I waited patiently for the menus, which did not come. As soon as my friend got back, the owner of the restaurant came up and said "She wasn't kidding about the drink" at which point we felt very unwanted, and the whole thing was getting ridiculous (it's green tea for god sakes.) I suggested that we leave, where then the owner launched into a tirade into his gluten free lifestyle. When he got to the part about his gluten free soap choices, we sharply left to eat at a noodle bar across the street (which had gluten free rice noodles and much less pretentious service.)
