    After reading the Mother's account and accepting that both sides are probably exaggerating, and even taking into account how aggressive the owner's rant on FB was (expletives, seems irrationally mad about it all), I still kinda fall on the side of the owner!! Ha! The mother's account just sound so ingratiating:

    "My baby"
    "my 21-month old"

    I mean please, lady. You have a 2 year old. A terror 2 year old, just like all of us. YOU made her wait 30 minutes for breakfast by choosing that diner, then she waited another 40 minutes for pancakes. No wonder she flipped her lid. Even if she cried for 10 minutes or 40 minutes, and even if the owner screamed at her or not (which is wrong), I still think the parent's created the situation in the first place and are kinda acting like martyr jerks.

    I think making a 21 month old wait that long for food is just asking for trouble!

    Even if the parents' version of events is exaggerated the owner sounds incredibly unprofessional and a bit nutty in her Facebook response.

    Yikes! Although that is just her side of the story (and of course we try and paint ourselves in the best light possible) after squinting to read the tweet with the owners reply I am fully on the side of the mother here.
    In fact, if what she has said is true- that the toddler was whiney and not in full blown tantrum, and that it was raining outside, then I would have done exactly the same as her.
    That owner is a complete lunatic.

    Default Diner owner yelled at 2 year old

    It doesn't matter in the least what that 2 year old was doing. No 2 year old deserves to have someone get in their face and tell them to shut up. The owner should be absolutely disgusted in themselves.
    If my daughter throws a food tantrum in a restaurant or cafe, I take her outside. I think every parent should do this to avoid situations like this occurring. Obviously if it was raining, that can't be done, but perhaps a trip to the bathroom to calm them down would help.

    Hahaha! Totally agree! If we go out to eat we always feed DS first or take his meal with us to feed him while we wait for ours. Never in a million years would I make a hungry child wait for food in a pubic place, you are asking for a tantrum IMO. And yeah - this kid is not a baby anymore lol.

    That said, the owner screaming at them and then ranting on FB is pretty stupid. Just leave it lady.

    I think everyone else has covered what I think in previous comments. We were in the US in June with our 16 month old and I remember one day at Denny's he was getting a bit impatient waiting for our meal. No tantrums but the occasional random squeal despite giving him snacks and toys. The meals were quick to come but someone across the diner still loudly commented "someone shut that baby up". It's just really unnecessary when it's obvious the parents are doing their best to keep them quiet (and they aren't screaming the place down).

    Wow! The expletive filled rant from the diner owner

    This only makes the parents of the toddler look like their side of the story is more plausible.

    It's a highly unprofessional way to handle a complaint and it makes her look unhinged.

    That's just unnecessary. Some people are hyper intolerant to small children making any form of noise.

    I took DS on a domestic flight just before he turned 2 and before take-off he made a couple of grizzly noises - not a tantrum, not crying, just noises. A guy sitting diagonally in front of us turned around and gave us the evil stares. If that was a problem for him, I'd hate to see how he treats parents with a child who's actually screaming.

    The owner sounds like she has an anger problem. My jaw is on the floor after reading her facebook rant.
