Lunch with a friend on a rainy afternoon ended up being Birchwood Cafe. I have to admit, my main reason to going there was to try the savory waffle! My dining companion seldom steps out of her box to order anything but a turkey sandwich or turkey burger and this time was no exception. I had planned to have a... More

My last experience here was TERRIBLE. But thankfully, this one was much better. Our server was quite nice, we were able to dine outdoors, and the menu items we wanted were actually available! It was kismet. I would suggest the corn risotto or a flatbread... and the fries are terrific!

Their food is just awesome. You could feel it from the first bite. Great ingredients plus creative options Perhaps they need to be more open to foreigns and explain them the self-service system, as I stay long in the terrace without knowing they will not going to serve me.

Famous for the Savory Waffle, I decided I had to find out what's so good about it. We arrived in a pouring down rain storm and had to walk a couple blocks as there was no available parking on the street right out front. The dining room was completely full when we arrived so we had to wait about 30... More

We had lunch today outside at the Birchwood, and we very much enjoyed our food there. I had the tofu sandwich and salad while my husband had the turkey/bacon sandwich and French fries. Everything was tasty, and we loved sitting outside on a beautiful day (not too warm). We did not dessert, but they looked wonderful.

I LOVE this place. We go there for lunch after yoga every week. Fresh, locally grown food prepared by excellent staff. Always surprising us with the ingredients in the veggie scramble, my favorite!

Great casual café, always busy, reliable breakfast and lunch menus with organic fixings, sandwiches, eggs, etc. Bottomless coffee. Bicyclers venue. Eat outside or in. Often meet adult kids here on weekends, but expect to come early or wait a bit.

Have been here several times before but it was great for mother's day. Very creative farm to table with a very helpful staff and nice atmosphere. I like the savory waffles and the homemade peri-peri sauce. Not the cheapest around but the food is fresh and very good. I lie the Sunday and Tuesday night specials.

It was my first time dining out in over two years. Needless to say, I researched menus online and was quite excited to find such healthy options. We got to the restaurant and our server was terrible (and she was training someone), they were out of the two menu items I was interested in, and we didn't find out about... More
