We waited quite some time for our coffee and even longer for our check . After finally getting our check I waited 15 minutes before going to a hostess... read more

You would be better off going to a diner than here for lunch. I cannot speak about breakfast but lunch was terrible. My husband had the cheese steak, the roll was hard as a rock and the actual cheesesteak bland with hardly any cheese. I had the mini reubens and they were ok but not worth it. I would skip... More

We had a late breakfast. First impression was tainted by how long it took to get a regular cup of coffee. My daughter's chai tea came quicker. If they had said we are brewing a fresh pot, I would have understood. I got Eggs Benedict. I couldn't believe how little hollandaise sauce they put on it. Each egg had a... More

Casual, bohemian vibe with booths and tables, sidewalk seating and a back patio with picnic tables. Service was competent and attentive. The breakfast and lunch menu choices are varied and interesting. Prices were reasonable. They don't rush you so it is a good place to hang out with your friends. Parking is on the street, using a pay station which... More

Yummy breakfast and a hip, casual atmosphere! They also have great gluten free options which is always a plus! We had the carrot cake pancakes and waffles with nutella.

Had breakfast there two times in the last year. It was very ordinary and each time the food was cold. Would not return

I have taken my daughter here several times and I love this restaurant and so does she. It has a comfortable, trendy sort of atmosphere with great coffee and great food. The service is great. Weekends in the summer can be really crowded so you might have to wait a bit but it is worth the wait!

Went at an off hour in the afternoon and ordered breakfast food. Good meal but they burnt the TOAST! We found it amusing and didn't send it back. Service was good and the waitress adorable. The locals love this place for breakfast or brunch. The food comes up quickly in a coffee bar atmosphere.
