Not to be missed

Fun, delicious, healthy (not necessarily lo-cal but wholesome), fresh food. Have some blueberry pancakes with real maple syrup (what else?) and a fruit cup (actual fruit that is not just melon) to cut the sweetness. Great!

White stable-type booths and counter ordering at reasonable prices keep this a simple straightforward experience. We had brunch but there were good lunch options too. Serving size is generous but not gargantuan, for a change (eg 2 large pancakes rather than 3; 4 very thick slices of freshly made French toast; breakfast in a medium skillet). The only failing was...

This was a surprise to me. We were lured in by the sandwich board outside that listed lamb and lentil stew. Breakfast food served all day, great small assortment of sandwiches with bread made in house, soups, salads, quesadilla, etc. Their home brewed mint kombucha was fantastic, as was the rest of the food, including the brisket hash with eggs,...

Good solid breakfast place, good portions, and reasonably priced. You order at the counter and staff brings it to your table and/or you can take to go.

We saw the good reviews for this place and headed over for breakfast with high expectations. Sadly we were very disappointed. The service is an odd mixture of waitress and serve yourself. You have to order at the counter (fair enough) and I was told our order would be brought to our table. So we sat down and waited. Shortly... More

Following the excellent reviews on TripAdvisor we were really looking forward to breakfast here..What a let down. Toast was burnt, bacon cremated ( I like it crispy but this was dried up and unappetising). Eggs were covered in what looked like specks of burnt fat, the potato hash was unseasoned and bland. The French toast we ordered was greasy and... More
