Had a Good Lunch

Despite all the rave reviews, I believe that our experience was basically average. After trying to get into its sister restaurant "Barnaby's" and leaving because of the wait, we headed over to this restaurant for breakfast.

Very small place but very hip, montrose area. The entire inside seating area is possibly only 400 square feet so not much room. Be ready to wait. The service is great once you're able to be seated and the food is really good. I had the eggs over-medium over corned beef hash. Very good. I'll go again and try something... More

Great little place off the main drag. If you like fresh breakfast food with excellent service, try this place.

Get there early. To get a table, go find the clipboard and write your name down, if you want to get in quicker make sure to put down "either" which just means you're not picky on where you sit (outside/inside). The staff is super friendly and doesn't rush your meal. I'd recommend everything, seriously. You HAVE to drink the orange... More

Yummy eggs with artichoke hearts and spinach. Delish! Hubby had the Breakfast Plate with bacon and hash browns. Nice place to hang out but finally had to go cuz the line was out the door.

First visit. Waited 30 minutes for a table at 11am on a Saturday. The coffee was excellent, fresh squeezed juice, green eggs, apple sausage, husband's ham steak, even the wheat toast...it was all a cut above average. I would have given it five stars, but it was cramped, crowded and noisy. Friendly staff and from conversations with other diners, lots... More

This was our first taste of Texas cuisine having arrived from the UK late the previous night. We had a smile on our face from the moment we set foot inside the place. It's right in the heart of the 'Montrose' district which is trendy Bohemian. BB is contained in what can only be described as a wooden shack, painted... More

When's the last time you saw a line on Wednesday morning at 10am for breakfast. Green eggs were phenomenal and so were the breakfast tacos. Give it a try.

We are drawn to Baby Barnaby's often for the great atmosphere, stimulating conversations, and friendly service. That said, the food still plays the starring role! Vegetarians and vegans will find plenty of options.

Visited on a Sunday afternoon for "brunch". It was crowded but I knew it would be based on the reviews I read. The environment was a bit of a turn off to me (kinda dirty looking...and dogs everywhere. All i could think of is pet dander floating into my OJ if I sat outside. Gross.) The waiters looked overwhelmingly busy... More
