This is their BRANCH on Atlantic Avenue

They are located in the old Hospital building of the Cayce Center (up the hill, 67th street). We had a family-and-friends brunch. Relaxed service, good food. highly recommended

Two of my friends and I had lunch here yesterday. We each really enjoyed our meal. We each had a half sandwich and salad. None of us were eating bread, potato salad or cheese so I can't comment on the bread or potato salad but I did hear someone at another table rave about the bread. I had a scoop... More

Let's just say that this is not my cup of tea. Apparently, though, a lot of people like it. It was packed, and I mean elbow to elbow. (And that means loud, too.) The service was good considering the numbers involved - both being waited on and being served. The adult food was okay though I am not at all... More

The food is really good, with a lot of options to choose from. The patio is very nice to sit on. My family and I especially love the outdoor area behind the restaurant with the chickens. My 3 year old gets so excited to see them.

We saw the segment on Diners, Drive-ins,and Dives and trip advisor reviews. It was better than expected. Very good unique cocktails to start, interesting flavor combinations in chicken salad sandwich and turkey/ surry ham sandwich. Very friendly service. Inexpensive for the quality.

This is my favorite weekend brunch place! Laura is my favorite server! Quaint decor; exceptional food. I feel like I'm in the country when I'm here yet I'm in the biggest city in the Commonwealth! They serve the best crab cakes I've ever eaten!

Great atmosphere, food and great portions. Small but quaint, get there early as they fill up fast. Everything is made to order and they grow most if not all of their vegetables as well as herbs that they use. There is also a great bakery next door that is worth wandering into while you wait to be seated. You will... More
