Very Good

This is a trendy resturant with two floors. It wasn't my favorite atmosphere, but it wasn't bad either. Great service by college students. Very good half pound burgers.

Tiny little place but it literally has everything you want, great friendly staff, great coffee, amazing tasting and large portioned breakfast at affordable prices, clean tables and floors, and positive environment. I loved everything about it.

Food was all delicious! We had the club, Banh Mi, black bean burger, and salads/soup. All of the sandwiches are huge! We had a short wait at noon on a Wednesday. There was a line but it did seem to move fast. Very friendly service. The breakfast dishes they brought out also looked amazing! No desert but the bakery downstairs... More

Service was fine and dandy, very good. Decor was average and second hand. Cleanliness was average at best. Food was also average. The restaurant website was first class. Floor was slippery and you need to ascend a decent set of stairs to get up to a fairly cramped space. Like I say people and prices are real nice but a... More

We stopped here on our way to Detroit (1/2 way between Chicago & Detroit) upon the recommendation of Trip Advisor reviews. The reviews were so right - the food was delicious and the service prompt and done with a smile. I had the breakfast burrito and my husband had the Mediterranean omelet. Both was fantastic and served with really yummy... More

This place is favored by young folks and is upstairs so do not go if you have limited walking/climbing ability. Food is quite good and servers are polite. Some tables look down on the street below. It reminds me of places that were all the rage in the 60s and early 70s--young staff, young crowd, a little bit of a... More

Service was very helpful and friendly. I love breakfast anytime and they serve up a nice one here. Selected the vegetarian breakfast sausage at the suggestion of my server and loved it.

Good food for breakfast and lunch. I'm not sure if they serve dinner or not I have never been there past lunch. Always had good service but they can be very busy especially on the weekends. You can expect to stand in line but it's worth it if you have the time.

Live close by, always heard this place has the best food, finally experienced it. Long line to get in, very rustic building, but you feel welcome , like your at grandmas house to eat.

We chose to visit this restaurant after reading the reviews on Trip Advisor. Glad we listened, the food was excellent and so was the atmosphere. You know you are at a good restaurant when people are lined up out the door waiting to get in. The line was long but the wait was not. Staff were pleasant, efficient and hard... More
