We were out late at a music event the some friends suggested Crow's Nest because they are one of the few restaurants open that late in the area. The menu was extensive for such a small dining area, and surprisingly diverse. My french toast with apples & cinnamon was excellent, and my husband really enjoyed his omelet. One of our... More

This place is no secret. From the time that they opened they have been very popular. One often has to wait on the staircase for a table, but it's worth it. There are lots of good choice for vegetarians, as well as for those who like meat.

When we arrived, the line was all the way down the stairs. We had to wait half an hour but was luckily seated at exactly noon. Service was fast and staff are friendly. I loved the ambience in this restaurant, it was a full house and you can see everyone's enjoying their meals. I had the baker's benedict. The eggs... More

Early dinner for a friend and me. She chose breakfast and had a skillet scramble with several veggies and red potatoes. I chose the Tofu Thai Stir fry. Mine was full of vegetables and wonderful flavors- spicy enough to have a nice lingering burn. Both of our plates were completely clean. Great service. I will definitely come back.

We knew this would be a good place when we saw the people lined up to get in. My scramble was hot, fresh,and tasty. The bread is homemade. David had the tomato soup and salad. The Greens are high quality with homemade dressings. Service was fast and friendly once we were seated. We will be back to try the specials.

When my mother and I arrived at the restaurant we open the door to a line all the way down the stairs. This was our first time dining at the Crow's Nest, I heard it was popular and the girls in front of us in line assured us that it was "worth it" to stick around, so we did. 30... More

We came at the suggestion of friends. It is located in the student section of town. We walked up an old stair case and found the hard wood floors in need of work and the tables/chairs "modest." Then came the food. Just awesome. Innovative choices, really fresh ingredients and large portions. Very friendly staff. We'll go here again!

Have dined there 3 times and each time the food was top notch. The place is small and unadorned but usually full. Wait staff excellent,and food is always fresh. My favorite menu item is the Bahn Mi sandwich. Pork barbecue on toasted homemade sour dough bread with a spicy, garlicy sauce and a slaw on top the meat. A PERFECT... More
