Good selection of salads (prearranged and an option for you to build your own), sandwiches, and entrees. I thought I ordered the turkey panini and instead received a cold turkey sandwich. The sandwich included shaved turkey meat, blue cheese, and sliced green apple. My friend ordered an entry w/ tuna, pasta salad (excellent!) and kale salad (bland). This location had... More

Met up here with a very good friend to eat some dinner. Parking was a little frustrating because there weren't any spaces available in the lot designated, so we parked on the street. Parking is always such a huge deal with me though, so if you don't mind hunting for a spot then it shouldn't bother you. I loved the... More

I Love this place. One of my favorite places to go where I can eat because I am so picky about food. And I don't like a lot of surprises in my food. I had the tortilla soup which said nothing about huge chunks of avocado in it. So of course I returned it. They were fast on getting me... More

This was our first visit to this restaurant and we were impressed! The pan fried salmon was prepared wonderfully and was very tasty. The pita chips and hummus side were delicious with a fresh herb-y flavor. The "Grilled Deliciousness" was unusual - it was like a savory fig newton in a little tart crust. The oven baked sweet potato "fries"... More

I work in nearby Newport Beach and have had many great meals here. Their turkey burger is arguably the best I have ever had. Their Cobb salad is outstanding as are their gourmet pizza's. They have hand picked a nice selection of wines as we like to have a nice wine for dinner. Their breakfast is a nice kept secret... More

The anti-oxiodine salad is terrific. Great good and great prices. Highly recommend this restaurant. Great for take-out food, especially for parties.

The food is great! You get to build your own salad or choose one that is on the menu! They have a nice wine menu! Seating is inside or outside! Parking is limited but that was ok.

Wow, what a super experience. I dropped by for breakfast, altered my breakfast burrito slightly to omit some spice and stayed to soak up the gorgeous details of the open air restaurant. The burrito was not at all typical, it was truly gourmet. There is so much seating both indoors at separate tables or at a long wooden community table.... More

We have been here about five times in the last couple of months, as it is close to our home. I love all of the vegetarian options! Breakfast was a little disappointing, but dinner is always great.
