I have gone here three times for Brunch, and have had an excellent experience all three times. Food is great, mimosas and Bloody Marys are awesome! Go before 9am and no wait to sit outside.

I suggest you call the cafe directly to confirm your reservation. When we went there for lunch, we were a party of six and we didn't have a reservation but we readily got a table.
