Cute place

Small and quiet. Great service and food. Would definitely recommend. We were there on a Friday and it was nearly deserted. Don't know why because everything about the experience was very enjoyable.

Crowded, disorganized, and disappointing. Place your order, get a number and wait. Semi-self service. Get your own silverware, refill your own coffee and water. Overpriced brunch for what you get. The lemon poppyseed pancakes with fruit were covered with this huge glop of butter. Any Greek diner would have better eggs, sausage, and potatoes.

Nice little place with a trendy atmosphere. Loved the jazz music. The food is very good and I wish the portions were maybe a tad larger (because it was good). Not expensive, but a little high for breakfast.

We arrived during Sunday brunch. What we found was a busy place that doesn't take reservations but somehow manages to handle a steady stream of customers without making one feel like things are overly crowded or in a state of chaos. You get in line and order your food after which they hand you a number and you wait until... More

This is one of those great breakfast places with good coffee and interesting selections. I had the barley saute and it was delicious and different. Highly recommended. Clean, nice people, reasonable prices, roomy -- get in on it!

This is a downtown restaurant. It is a great location to walk to and a pleasant space to eat in. The staff is very helpful and friendly. You order at the counter and they bring the food to the table. Indoor and outdoor tables are both nice. We ate breakfast here. The menu is creative and our food choices were... More

We were only in Madison 4 days and ate breakfast here twice! First time just two of us-beautiful day to sit outside and chillax-maple latte and egg sandwich was perfect....husband had an almond milk mocha and duck confit hash with poached eggs-only disappoint was that the poached eggs were over cooked-but that was easily overlooked....since we went back the next...

The food is a mix of American breakfast/brunch faire with a fresh take on farm-to-table. The fresh mixed green salad with vinaigrette was a delightful treat with the ham and gruyere omelette. The home fries were well done and the coffee was strong and fresh (but you have to help yourself). No table service but they will bring your order... More

I love a good breakfast to start the day, and this place is rated as a very good breakfast place. Went this A.M. as they opened, and got a bacon/spinach/cream cheese omelette with good potatoes and wheat toast. Add in a nice strawberry jam, and smooth local coffee, and it's a winner! BUT, be aware you probably will have the... More
