Friends took us here for Sunday breakfast. Interesting decor with many reclaimed items, but the harshness of the decor meant no sound buffering. It was too noisy for a pleasant conversation. Not the place to go if you want to catch up with friends. The food was good, not outstanding compared to other breakfast places that I have frequented. We... More

We had a reservation for 12:30 and waited a half hour for a table to clear. I find this unacceptable for lunch. We won't be back. But I have to say that the food was very good.

What a cute brunch place in Clayton area! Feed the parking meter before you go in or park in the lot behind. Relaxed vibe. Many coffee selections as well as anything else you can imagine for breakfast /brunch. Open only til 2P. We had Clara cakes, pancakes with marscapone cheese and raspberries in the layers, topped with a selection of... More

Get there before 10 or else be prepared to wait. A very popular breakfast place on weekends. The breakfast choices are extensive and the French toast is great.

Came here for breakfast with my daughter, a student at WashU, on a weekday. The menu featured all the basics of a good breakfast place, and they were flexible in letting me switch up their combo breakfast with my individual selections. Their iced coffee is good too. Not sure what all the fuss is about but I would go back... More

I think almost everyone I know has recommended this charming breakfast spot to me but I've just never had the chance to go. Well, I finally went this morning and it was great! The lemon and lavender champagne was definitely the highlight of my morning. I had the Half and Half breakfast which is just a basic eggs and potatoes... More

I was hungry and needed to eat, stopped here to get some energy. The food was bland and basic, would I visit again? Maybe not, , it's a small place and you have to wait for a table, the food is not that good for the price. The service was good. I had the chop and hash.

First of all, do yours of a favor and download the No Wait app. Then, on a Sunday morning, log into the app and get in line. Then shower, dress, and drive to the restaurant. You'll still have to wait. Don't worry - you can get a Bloody Mary with a fried pickle garnish that's an appetizer in itself. Chat... More

The wait staff are great, the food is amazing. The place is small so be prepared for a wait, but you wont be disappointed. The food is fresh and extremely tasty!
