I have had the pleasure to dine at Old Vine for Breakfast many times and have always had a perfect meal. Their clever distinction between sweet and savory on the menu directs me to what suits my mood. I love the Vegetarian, Smoked Salmon, and Gourmet Sausage & Eggs. The Pistachio Nut Butter goes well with Whole Wheat Toast, a... More

The Old Vine is a great food and wine spot. I've eaten here many times. They offer ideas for wine pairing on the dinner menu. Breakfast and lunch items are very creative. There is something for everyone's taste. I really like the Rueben sandwich. They feature a variety six-pack of wine for $60 with a selection of international wines that... More

I can't say enough good things about this place. I had the pleasure of dining here for dinner with a family friend who adores this place. We ordered from the prix fixe menu. My friend and I had the "Original Tasting" and her husband had the "Chef's Menu." I loved the wine pairing with each course. It eliminated the task... More

Loving this place a lot. Though it was small but it was able to accommodate my family. We arrived just before the lunch crowd. The food was good for the price we paid. However, my wife ordered an English muffin and it didn't look or taste like English muffin. For my dish, it had too much biscuit in between. My... More

What a neat little area - really laid back but clean and tidy and definitely upmarket in the best way - for America it is a small area but there are great eateries here along with good shops. We ate breakfast there - Southern Brunch and Roger Rabbit - definitely good quality, good amounts and excellent service . The brunch... More

Expect long waits for seating at this popular café. I have eaten here three times, and the service is excellent. The food is good, but not great. It's certainly not as good as the hype. The popular biscuit reminds me of the Bisquick biscuits of my childhood. Why would someone go through so much trouble to perfect that? Still, if... More

Food's pretty good, service is pretentious. When we arrived, she refused to tell how long it would be. She explained that it's her policy, but we overheard other greeters giving out approximate wait times. We waited a long time, but it's a small place. We ordered mimosas (over $10, but pretty good) and sandwiches. Then waited (again). Server never came... More

Ambiance - quaint, hip and relaxed Service - wonderful without being intrusive. Waitress made great recommendations based on both popularity AND personal preference Breakfast - delicious. We ordered the open face biscuit with chipotle gravy, bbq omelette, a side of biscuit with apple butter & strawberry jam. All soooo good. Open faced biscuit was way too good. Will definitely go...
