It's Good!

Had a Saturday morning breakfast meeting here-good choice. I arrived at opening and had my choice of seating. Surprised it was not busier-and even 2 hours later there was open seating. The menu was diverse emphasis given the waffle specials. The portions and presentations looked really good... read more

Been here many times. The omelettes are very good - love the potato hash. Waffles are their specialty. Excellent coffee. Staff is always friendly.

While famous for its waffles, Mosaic is equally superb at its soups, entrees, and desserts. Our family travels throughout the world for public health work, but we always return to the Mosaic as our favorite when we are in our hometown. For lunch, we recommend the half sandwich and bowl of soup. The tomato-basil is consistently tasty, and the mushroom... More

I've been to this place twice, one for breakfast one for lunch last week. Their menu indicated that due to the avian flu they didnt have all the regular brunch items that contain eggs. That was fine as they had plenty of other things to choose from. I had the tuna melt in a waffle with french fries. It was... More

What a Great place to eat. I give this a five stars. Their unique waffle roast beef is excellent! This is a must return to place. The only thing that was a knock on them was that they were out of gluten free waffles. They did have a lot of gluten free options though.

Our four entrees were all pretty good, although non really stood out in any way. Ambiance is also very average. Not sure why some customers rate this place as highly as they do.

I think this is the best gluten-free meal (of normally glutinous foods) that I have ever had. Pork medallions, soup, waffles!! If you must be gluten-free, try this little gem hidden away behind the REI on the Pike.

Again complete honest, only at Mosaic for brunches. I love their brunch, the place is fine, nice ambiance and good vibe. Service is average, you know me I am picky. Please order the Angus Ground Sirloin! You will not regret it. And of course Waffles! Bon Appetit!!!

This is one of my favorite places to eat and has been for years. Bonus in the summer, they have iced decaf brewed coffee with free refills. The food is excellent, particularly the wild mushroom soup. Their "thing" is that they serve waffles with everything, including sandwiches, but other bread options are available. The omlette is great, but I have... More
