Bagel Uh-Oh - SFoodie dug up the behind-the-scenes of Phil Roland's recent abrupt exit from Terra Bakery and Cafe. Says Roland's partner Jennifer Westmoreland: "'Unfortunately Phil and I were not able to provide the same quality customer service and baked good as we did in the Lower Haight, so we left. At this time I cannot give details because we are pending a lawsuit over ownership , the use of Phil's name and unetical [sic] business practice. We are currently looking for a new spot and will keep everyone updated.' She asked that we mention that the duo are seeking new investors. Done." [SFoodie]
