First of all, I haven't eaten eggs for breakfast since I was six years old during the seventies. My instincts and eyes kept going to the Shrimp & Lobster Omelet. I decided to take a chance and it really paid off! I had generous chunks of shrimp and lobster throughout my omelet along with a green salad and olive bread... More

We parked in the neighborhood behind and waited a bit in line before ordering. Got the Wild Rice Salad, which was excellent, but the hummus and pita was some of the best I've ever had. Both the inside and out were beautiful. Great place to grab lunch.

Wonderful super healthy choice menu, Gluten free, Vegan, plus great choices. You order at the bar/cashier. Don't be put off by the brusque less then welcoming woman there. Everything else is charming. Great totally pleasant outdoor setting. Fast -- Good with tons of options.

Went on a Monday at 830am. The place was immaculate and beautiful. The staff is courteous. Nice artwork on the walls and very relaxing. Bring your iPad or paper. I highly recommend the Carnitas Benedict!

There's a reason that there's always a line out the door and sometimes down the block. This restaurant is a neighborhood favorite, serving good food in an energetic yet comfortable environment (a converted house, actually). The portions are large enough to share, so be careful that you don't order too much food.

Their egg dishes are superb. We recommend either their "Salmon Stack": poached eggs on smoked salmon atop a potato pancake with hollandaise sauce over it, or their "Huevos Rancheros" (also with hollandaise sauce). Both are excellent. Also try their chocolate brioche bread pudding muffin. Sit out on their side or back patio. Pleasant informal café atmosphere.
