Dear sirs

On 25 at night I went to 85 coffee shop in hubin dong Lu in xiamen (, I ordered black tea and mango juice for my wife and we bought some cakes,

Their cake had really bad smell, we let their staff , first step they didn't believe ,

But unfortunately I ate that cake which had problem ,

After we ate their cakes and tea , both of us went to hospital , dr said their cakes had big problem

We had diarrhea for some days ,because of their cake

Please publish this short news , I hope some babies don't use their cakes and products, I don't like to see big problem for babies ,

If we love our people , we should inform them ,

This coffee shop should change their product

We can not compare at all this coffe shop and bakery with anothers such as andersen, starbucks, bristot and so on

they should stop to develop their shoppings, otherwise maybe they will make big problem for people

You are now in Bistro & Bakery
