A cool place for brunch

The coffee and food here is delicious... The French toast was mouth-watering. A cool, young atmosphere - would recommend a visit if you're in the area1

This past week my boyfriend and I went to Snooze and had an amazing breakfast! I had the Nutella French toast and ate every last bit of it! The service was great and I loved the fresh and relaxing atmosphere!

If you love eating out for breakfast, Snooze needs to be on your list of places to try. Two friends and I really enjoyed our morning meal--and were glad we met at 8:30 (on a Wednesday), as there looked to be a lengthy wait when we left around 10. The food was fabulous! I had a cinnamon roll pancake (it... More

After a long wait for a table was really disappointed in breakfast after all the buildup from a friend. The potatoes accompanying my entree were cold, hard and tasteless. Don't think I'd wait that long again for a so-so meal .

The long waits at peak times attests to the popularity and great food, coffee and service at Snooze. My wife had oatmeal and I had the ham eggs Benedict, one of the several Benedict choices. The coffee was very good and the service was attentive and personable. Snooze is only open from breakfast through the lunch service, so plan accordingly.... More

Visited a couple of times whilst in the City, both occasions for breakfast. Even at 7am on a weekend people are waiting, it really is a destination place if you're in town. Menu is varied, and food quality superb (recommend the omelets) and the service was first class, personal and engaging without being pushy, as for value for money we... More

This place is busy. Even on a weekday we waited 20 minutes but this place is worth the wait, plus free coffee while waiting😃. The staff is so pleasant and efficient. I had the B.E.A.T sandwich and it was So. Very. good! Love all the unique choices and I look forward to trying them with our next visit!

We came on Monday morning at 9am and waited for about 5 min for the table which is not bad at all! We ordered Bella Bella Bella Benny, breakfast pot pie and blueberry pancakes. The food came out quickly. They are all very yummy. The pancake was so good and much better than I had expected. The service is great.... More
