Ditto, very good, but #1?

I was happy to get a table at noon on a holiday weekend with no wait, wait staff was good until I wanted my bill, maybe that's just me but I feel it happens a lot! Food was good, fast and $10 range so that is all good, but keep in mind there is no liquor and they close at... read more

Stopped for breakfast as a couple. Crowded and very hard to hear our conversation. To substitute a pancake for potatoes was an additional charge but the pancake was "the best ever" per my wife. I substituted an English muffin for the toast and unbelievably there was an extra charge. My eggs over easy were fine, chicken sausage overcooked and my... More

Kalbi Tacos -skirt steak with kimchi really tasty. The Harvest Frittata with kale, Swiss chard, goat cheese parked on top of a spinach wrap - very good and fresh. The vegetables were all fresh. The potatoes that came with both dishes are crispy and tender-great. We came in 25 minutes before they closed and everyone was still friendly and attentive.... More

Great food a little pricey and almost always a wait but very much worth it. If your looking to cure a hangover though not the place. They don't serve liquor

I come here and I am always impressed with the level of food that I get every time. I have been here for breakfast and lunch on several occasions, and I have found them always to be consistently very good. I love that they change their menus depending on the season and they always find ways to capitalize on what's... More

This is one of the better breakfast places in the area. Plenty of menu options. The food was good but could've been very good if it came out hot and not just warm. Service was okay.

Extremely loud -- painfully so. Acoustics are the big problem. Menu difficult to understand and food just too odd. Nothing totally inedible but would never return or recommend. Our thirteen year old granddaughter was miserable here. She did not touch a morsel and she was very hungry. We could not wait to leave -- louder than we have ever experienced.

This restaurant was recommended and it delivered. We went for brunch and we're able to get generous portions of good food. Several of us had the Korean BBQ bowl which I would recommend. Full of traditional flavors and a good mix. We had to wsit, so call ahead, it's an easy walk from the main drag.

I went to Simple while in town for a birthday weekend. It was Mother's day around lunch time. There was a wait as well as pretty slow service because of how busy it was. The reason I waited patiently was because of the quality of food. All of their produce is from local sources and anything I say them bringing... More
