Have eaten here a few times and would eat there more if we lived in Manhattan. Good food and fun little atmosphere.

My husband and I have been here multiple times, tried various dishes and we love it, it's always on point.The service is smooth, staff friendly and the food has never been disappointing. It can get a little busy, but it's a good sign of it's consistency. I definitely recommend it to anyone.

I've eaten here before and it never disappoints. Despite being early on a Sunday morning the place was busy. Good service, atmosphere, and food.

We love The Chef! The food is unique and delicious! The homemade strawberry Jam that is served hot will change your life! OK, maybe not but it's worth licking the bowl. The "Dang Quesadilla" is one of my favorites, as well as the biscuits and gravy. The wait staff is always friendly, the owner greats you at the door. It's... More

Heard about this place from friends and from TripAdvisor. It's my daughters first year at Kstate at vet school. We arrived at 9 am on a Sunday and had about a 20 minute wait but they give you coffee as you wait. Inside you'll find a great atmosphere and a full menu. I had the quesadilla which was unusual but... More

Great food. For a person who loves to eat breakfast, this is the place to go. They have some many choices of dishes to choose from. I'll be going back for sure.

Breakfast restaurant that has a cozy urban feel to it. Usually a wait but they will serve you a beverage while you are waiting. If they don't offer one ask for it, it makes the wait seem shorter. I've tried several things on the menu and it was all good but I didn't order anything creative. The brewed coffee they... More

This is a cool place to go for breakfast because options are really limited in MHK. I really wish the restaurant would cut the menu in half, focus on a few dishes and perfect them. There's always a long wait, so either plan on going really early or head there for a very late brunch to avoid the weekend crowd.

I tried the Eggs Benedict, one of my favorite dishes. The plate I was served had some sort of abominable squirts of yellow glue squeezed onto it that was supposed to be the Hollandaise sauce. It was awful. It was the worst Eggs Benedict I ever had in my life and I could not eat it. My wife had bacon... More
