Food was amazing. This small restaurant is in an area of small shops off the main drag. Service was fun and attentive. Chef put together an amazing menu. Loved it!

I had a nice Apple salad here on the terrace. There are not many gluten free options but the salad was very nice. Loved the ambiance.

We at here for breakfast at the recommendation of our hotel. It's a cute restaurant in a little patio just off state street. There is indoor and outdoor seating. The menu while not huge has a wonderful selection of food with great flavors. We had a party of 8 so we tried a lot of food and it was all... More

Went with a group of 8 for Saturday brunch. Strong recommendation from one of the folks at the Canary Kimpton Hotel and it didn't miss. Tucked behind a building it was a little tough to find and we had to wait about 20 minutes but should be expected with a big group with no reservation. When the food came it... More

Love this place - great food, especially the biscuits and lovely location. Food was tasty and service prompt. Going back next time - no two ways to it. Enjoy!

Different delicous breakfast/ brunch. I tried some quinoa oatmeal that was excellent. Atmosphere is really nice. Be prepared to wait for a table (we waited about 30 minutes) worth the wait. Service was great.

The breakfasts are really good, but it's the maple bacon biscuits that are the BOMB! The pumpkin French toast and soft scrambled eggs are solid choices.
