This restaurant is a hidden gem. The food selections are very out of the ordinary with great taste and imaginative creativity in the preparation.
The wine is some of the finest and good prices; ones that you don't see in the grocery store.

Great menu for breakfast or lunch. Omelets, salads, sandwiches--everything looked wonderful. Went for lunch recently with some business colleagues and can't wait to return. Parking is a little limited so you might want to avoid peak times--come early or late.

We stumbled upon the Old Vine while shopping... to say the least it was amazing! The bloody mary is a perfect side with the Reuben omelet, and like others, get the pistachio butter on a homemade english muffin. You'll thank yourself!

We visited this restaurant on a quiet Sunday afternoon. There were quite a few choices on the menu. I had a beautifully prepared and presented spinach salad. Lots of interesting fruit choices: fig, apricots, strawberries. Also goat cheese and almonds were plentiful. My husband had scrambled eggs just how he asked, runny! Mostly all wine was imported, and a bit pricey by the glass, which is why I did not give a full rating.

Came for early lunch. Good thing, the parking gets horrendous pretty quickly. Love the ambiance. We sat outside taking in the Camp. Small water feature that adds to the auditory ambiance. The service was great. Tried the blueberry french toast and the smothered. Warning: the portions are quite large. We weren't ready for that. The french toast was good, had layers, and texture almost like bread pudding. I liked the smothered better. It was so good!!! Slightly sweet corn bread covered with egg, cheese, gravy, jalapenos. Also some picked vegetables on the side. It was soooo good....

I can't wait to come back and try dinner.
