As part of a group brunch, our hostess has chosen Farmicia. What a surprise that was. I chose the Mexican omelet and while it was extremely spicy, it was excellent. Of the nine in the group, there were diverse choices and everyone commented on how good their food was. Also, at 11 am on a Sunday morning, the service was... More

+1 BYO permitted! Great spot in old town within walking distance of attractions, businesses and hotels. Fair price. The service was wonderful. We stayed and talked for a long time, the waiter checked on us at appropriate intervals. We never felt rushed. The food was above average, well prepared and very fresh. The octopus, first course was excellent! Our entrees... More

Was walking by and found this place. It was a great sunday happy hour treat. The food was delicious and the waitress was kind enough to add an extra apple for a treat for my daughter. Waiter Tim is living the dream.

We had a great brunch at Farmicia. I had huevos rancheros and my boyfriend has a breakfast burger with hamburger and sausage. I would definitely eat there again!

Farmicia is a neighborhood gem. I had a business lunch there on a Saturday. The restaurant offered a tasty brunch menu as well as a lunch menu, all accompanied by a good, though modest in length, draft beer list. The food was interesting and different, showing a chef's hand. I had a burger of good beef and chorizo ground together... More

Farmicia was a wonderful find and such a great place it was hard to fault anything. Staff efficient, menu appealing, variety tremendous (including vegetarian and vegan options), BYOB at no charge, lovely bread, good... More

There's a half price drink happy hour which, following tradition, is more than an hour. The bar selection pairs quality to price. For example, there's one Riesling listed which is... More
