Considering how many times this place was recommended to me, I was slightly underwhelmed. Everything was average, from the ambiance/decor/actual place itself to the food. I had french toast and it was nothing special. Service was a little slow, the waitress disappeared nowhere to be...More

When the restaurant is packed at 8:30am on a weekday you know it's a great spot to grab breakfast. There's nothing truly special on the menu (though the banana bread French toast sounded intriguing) but the restaurant executes well on traditional breakfast dishes. I ordered...More

I sat on the patio on a lovely July day, ready for a nice lunch to treat myself. The kale salad looked interesting, and was nice enough but came without the candied walnuts as described. No bread came with it. So, I asked for some...More

The breakfast sandwich for $14 is half a sandwich. “Excuse me where is the other half of my sandwich?” “Oh did you want the double?” The double?! No thanks. Anyway, no great loss - it wasn’t that good. An egg, a slice of processed cheese,...More

We went here for breakfast. It's always busy when we stop by, but I guess that's a testimonial to how good the food is. We ordered cappuccinos and pancakes and got huge portions! After a wholesome breakfast we rolled out there and didn't need to...More
