Amazing Breakfasts, delicious Lunches

Amazing food, friendly service, watch the chef create your meal as they are in the same room as you. Seating is very limited I would say to 30 people. Popular downtown eatery for breakfasts and lunches. Yes you can pre order and take out. Don't forget their desserts which are delicious.

Maybe I ordered the wrong thing but the food was just alright. I ordered a sandwich and it was ok could have been bigger for the price. My husbands salad was ok. Nothing horrible but really nothing spectacular either. So probably won't go back or if we do maybe try breakfast instead.

I had the Quinoa Porridge and it was great! The service was pretty good despite how busy it was. I will definitely be returning.

Small and cozy for Breakfast and lunch. The soups are outstanding, eggs bennies are outstanding. The pastries are beyond amazing. Get there early or you won't get a seat. The two chefs are friendly and genuine in their interest of their customers being satisfied with their dining experience. They also do catering.

We have had breakfast and lunch here several times in the past month. It is funky and a bit tight, but the food is superb and the service professional. They make many gourmet offerings at attractive prices.

Seriously. My toddler and I were the first customers the morning we went in. The server was so nice, as were the chefs. This place was so cute and I really loved how it was set up. The food. My God the food. I'm still disappointed I decided to share two things with my son rather than order us each... More
