We arrived early, because we had seen the lines driving by before. Worth it! Really friendly staff. French press coffee, strong! Wonderfully inventive egg dishes. And incredible french toast. We'll be back!

This place is so popular that there is a long line to get in, especially if you are in a big group. The food was good but its so busy that you have to wait for it, not a good idea if you are in a hurry. Servers are nice. Prices are high, but I guess its due to the... More

Our food took a really long time to come out around lunch time on a Tuesday, but it was worth the wait. The servers are very nice and there is a huge selection of healthy food to choose from. I had the tofu scramble. There are a couple kinds but I tried the southwestern one. It had a lot of... More

Perfectly-cooked Florentine Benedict and a good coffee. As an Aussie, I'm used to small coffees, but this was easily accommodated (asked for it in a tea cup following the advice of the next door table). I started asking for certain items off and adding others, then decided to just go with it as standard and glad I did. A genuinely... More

Had the gourmet burger and it was fresh and tasty . My wife had the Capresi and it was also great. The table next to us ordered the Crusty French Toast which apparently this place is famous for. We admired it from afar but as we were completely stuffed we ordered a coffee. Imagine to our surprise when the waitress... More

My wife and I stopped by here for a very late breakfast on a weekday around 2:30pm. This is a busy place, however we were able to get a spot on the somewhat limited patio dining area. There are around 6 tables, however since it is on the north side of the street you get the sun shining directly on... More

We lucked out between World Cup matches & had zero wait for a sidewalk table. Service is very thorough, attentive & quick but not rushed!! Had the crunchy French toast & the Norwegian eggs benny. Wow were they both to die for!!!! We actually struggled to decide on an item as everything sounded delicious. That will mean return visits the... More

THE BURBON BAR! Everything here is always so go, and fresh. The water taste very clean. I wish i lived closer. If you are undecided, you have to try this place. You can't go wrong! Hope this helps. Best- Riley

You're not gonna want to go on a weekend unless sitting for two hours on a dirty curb gets you going. It's worth trying on a weekday. Don't try to be all healthy and get the oatmeal or the eggs. You'll only end up secretly disappointed that you didn't get the French toast when you see how great the one... More

No matter what I order from the menu, I am never disappointed. There is always a wait but well worth it. I don't think I have had the same thing twice. I am determined to eat my way through the menu. The owner is always pleasant and checks on the tables to ensure you are enjoying your experience. Gotta love... More
