Good food; sit outside

Burgers are superb. Organic plates ordered by family were excellent as were the fish tacos. We sat outside. Atmosphere was relaxing for us - we ate there in early afternoon. Would do it again!

Went based on recommendations from locals, bit of a disappointment. First of all were made to wait over 20 minutes even though restaurant never full. Seemed that the front of the house is a little disorganized. Secondly once we were seated took over 5 mins to see our waitress. Then it started to rain and the partial umbrellas outside did... More

Waiter didn't what "Seltzer" or "club soda" is. Service was really unfriendly and unprofessional. My wife found hair in her salad. Returned it and what do you know hair again! Coincident? I don't know but I saw it with my eyes. I laughed. It's crazy! My wife canceled her food altogether. The waiter gave a reserved apology and almost make... More

This was my first experience eating at a restaurant that uses fresh, organic, locally sourced goods. I was taken back at how fresh the produce was. Upon walking up the steps, you think you're walking into a farmer's market, with fresh produce sitting in boxes. We arrived around 11 a.m., but were pleased to find that they were still serving...

Love this place because of the dog friendly patio, plus the food is delicious. We came starving and ready for some huevos rancheros and would told it would be a 15 minute wait, usually less. Hostess doesn't really know what she's doing and the manager has to come in and clean it up for her every once in a while.... More

The menu is sure to please. Lots of delicious choices so you have to keep going back to sample your next favorite dish. I had the California Scramble. I don't know how they can make a scrambled egg combo so delicious, but it was the best I've had. Must be the fresh ingredients, abundant portions and customization for every preference.... More

Nothing fancy here. They have the cool, surfer, basic funky healthy lifestyle here. Simple wooden tables and booths with an outside area. I ordered a bison burger with their sweet potato fries. It was good but I thought it would have more flavor than a regular burger. So I was a little disappointed. Fries were, well regular sweet potato fries.... More

From the moment we arrived and were seated at the open table of our choice, to the huge fresh fruit filled acai bowl and over sized seared tuna sandwich, these people know how to smile and provide excellent service. Will definitely return.
