Brunch before the Farmer's Market

10 to 15 minute wait on a Saturday morning is really not that bad. Once seated, we were waited on promptly and efficiently by Andrew our waiter. Food was prepared nicely and presented very well.

2nd time at the Fatted Pig in 6 months, service was very accommodating - we were running late to catch the local Theater. As I asked the unsavory question "we have 19 minutes before the show, what's the fastest thing out of your kitchen" That must drive them crazy :-) However the servers never blinked, got us our soups, salads...

It's been a few years since we wrote off this place. Waited on the street for 1 hour to be seated, 20 minutes to be waited on, and 40 min for our meal....brunch for my birthday

Atmosphere is upbeat and fun with a casual modern decor. The staff is professional and very accommodating. The service is exceptional. Our party ordered pancakes, spinach omelet and huevos rancheros. Food arrived promptly and the only real criticism is the lack of seasoning. I'm not a lover of salt but for both egg dishes, the salt was lacking. Other than... More

We eat here about once every three months and have been to their holiday buffets. It is very good and we have had nothing disappointing. The brunches Are dry good and their homemade strawberry preserves are worth buying more to take home (in fact they are for sale at the Satirday morning farmers market just outside, along with fresh bread...

Just had lunch at FC. Very busy lunch hour today so the service was a little slow and somewhat spotty. Nothing major, but the young lady waiting on us did things like forget to bring ketchup after asked for it, had to be asked for coffee or tea refills. The food was good as it consistently is here. I had... More

We decided to try something new other than the organic coffee house we usually do eat out breakfast at and we are so glad we did. Although the coffee is just ol regular coffee, the food was great. We had a strawberry waffle, omelet, and biscuit sliders and all were equally delicious. Service was consistent even though they were busy.... More

I have eaten here 4 times in the last 3 weeks and every visit brings a surprise. The brunch is absolutely the best in my opinion, however the service can be surprisingly good or disappointingly bad. It does seem better when the young manager is around. And, I must say that the hostesses are always a delight. On Tuesday night... More

We love this place. We usually visit once a week for breakfast or lunch. The food is excellent! The service isn't always the greatest, but the quality of the meals more than makes up for it.
