Loved the menu choices and the food!

The breakfast / brunch menu has a variety of standard items, along with healthy alternatives. I had a roasted vegetable bowl with a poached egg and tomato chutney, and a side of masala potatoes - both were great, although I could not finish it all with the extras they brought us!

Fantastic, foodie brunch. We had cornmeal pancakes and a ham and egg sandwich (with honey mustard, micro greens and a side of masala potatoes). This place is so cool! It's staffed completely with young people who are learning culinary arts. They must have an incredible training program, because the menu and food are top notch. Prices are crazy cheap. They...

We were driving through Santa Rosa and decided to stop here for breakfast. It's a small restaurant, but very cute. I believe it is a restaurant where the owners hire teens who need a chance at a better life... to teach them responsibility and make them feel good about themselves. The food was delicious! The service was great! The prices... More

I ordered the chicken and waffle. Neither the menu or the Napoleon Dynamite waiter warned me that it would be soaked in onions and onion juice. So gross! Onion waffles are NOT good at all. I had a nasty after taste for an hour after this meal. My husband ordered the palenta and it was average. The coffee was good.... More

A friend found this place during a wine tasting weekend getaway with some friends. The place is simple but cute and homey. We were greeted by a very friendly staff as soon as we enter the restaurant. As we wait for our food, we were given slices of fresh fruits and baked goods to start with. My boyfriend and I... More

The bread pudding and scones that were on our table when we were seated were just the beginning if a wonderful breakfast. It is sad that they could not make it on a donation basis because the food was amazing. However the prices on the menu were more than reasonable and we tipped quite generously. Do not miss this place... More

After reading all the glowing reviews about this place, we could not miss the opportunity to visit and were lucky not to have to wait for a table. The food was simple, but very well prepared and thoughtfully presented (and absolutely delicious!). The service was excellent. After such a great dining experience and after learning about the apprentice program, you... More

We know the story behind this place so the family and I went for breakfast one Saturday morning. WOW is right. Great service, food was excellent and the value is outstanding. We dropped a $45 'donation' for their service and great food (2 adults and 2 small kids who split a meal plus coffee and juice). Go there, enjoy and... More

We came in for brunch, and the 6 of us enjoyed our meals, and walked away feeling good. I had a very well prepared eggs benedict, yum. I understand that the restaurant trains young adults and teens, who experience significant hardship or adversity, culinary skills and food service training. The food was good, the service was great, and when I'm... More

We had the pleasure of finding this quint, hard to find, culinary special restaurant. This restaurant employees students who are getting first hand education in the art of cooking, serving and presentation of brunch specialties. The service and food were very good. The hours of operation are only Saturday 9-2 and Sundays 9-1. Recommend you call ahead to make reservations... More
