Add bacon, toast with apple cinnamon jelly, and awesome coffee, my day was good to go. I was seated immediately and food was served expeditiously. Quirky and yet classy environment added... More

Best breakfast in the downtown/ north shore area hands down! Menu is fresh and not over priced. Parking is easy and in walkable distance if you go around the building opposite the aquarium side. Great patio space for nice days!

We probably made a mistake trying to get a meal here on a Sunday Morning around 10 AM. The teenage hostess informed us it would be a 15 minute wait. We were given an electronic notification device and sat on a bench seat directly across from the hostess station. I notice that there were A LOT of staff at this... More

This cute little diner is located overlooking river and behind the ice skating rink. The food was really good & service was quick. There is a good variety of food. We were glad we stumbled upon this jewel.

We are here for lunch while visiting the aquarium-it's just across the street. Everything we ate was delicious and fresh with some unique menu items! Fun atmosphere.

All I have to say is BLUE CHIPS, you must get the blue chips. We have ordered tons of things on the menu, nothing even comes close to being as good as the blue chips. We eat them there and then we get two more orders to go! BLUE CHIPS!

Had time for a quick lunch while visiting the city and decided to try the Blue Plate. Not fancy but very clean. Food was typical diner food but the portions were generous and tasty. Definitely worth considering for lunch.
