First I get there and are yelled By some nursery school teacher and her red Jair and polka dot dress. To GET OFF THE STAIRS.

Then we wait 20 min after said 5-10 and told we were intoxicated and had to leave because we asked were we outside or inside.

For real! Skip it. Use Uber eats. They should be fired. And the ten people that walked out with is. Good for them. Windmill it is. Won’t go back if it was free

Ruined a special occasion. And now exaggerated they did on intoxication part.

Really low level place to eat out. Can find a more appetizing food establishments like surf taco a few doors down which is way better. Food was just editable (ordered the tuna salad). This is known more of a hang out with the dark interior if that's your thing . More of a local college hangout.

Came here on a Sunday night for birthday light bite and dessert. Came here years ago and always had a great time. Well, times change...poor poor service. Ordered appetizers before birthday dessert/coffee, didn't expect to wait over 45 mins between them. Then waiter took our coffee order, never took dessert order(which is why we went there), then another 45 mins for the check. Best part,waited in line another 25 mins to pay bill and got hit with a garbage can by rude waitress/runner. What a waste of time and money. Staff very rude and needs to be trained on working with the public. Very disorganized and needs new management. Other places in area worth the wait- not this place !

Always enjoy coming here. With the wife or with the whole family. The deserts are as wide ranging as they are good. The many coffees on offer are simply delicious! Would recommend to anyone.

Been here a million times over the years. Open late. Junk food as well as healthy. Something for everyone. Service was a little slow this last time but not horrible. Especially since it was so late. I usually get the grilled chicken salad on a pita with fries/ gravy. Sort of healthy but probably not. Lots to choose from. Inside and outside seating. Plenty of parking in area and lot. Nice people and employees. The occasional drunk may cause a stir but nothing to worry about. We love this place and it's better than McDonalds by far. Always go back.
