“Hidden Gem!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 23, 2013

Found this place recently during a quick stop for lunch. Ordered the chicken salad sandwich on a croissant. Sounds kind of boring, right? NOPE! Sandwich was fabulous---lots of avocado and amazing quality chicken salad. Wonderful place---can't wait to return next year!

“Expensive, but worth every cent”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 16, 2013

My wife loves avocado, and I'm okay with it. We both had the avocado open faced sandwich. It was perfectly served with a bit of sea salt and olive oil...so delicious. I've been trying to recreate it since we got back from our trip, but never tastes as good. Our espresso and latte were good as well.

“Wonderful”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 30, 2013

I've been going here for coffee or lunch multiple times a week since it opened. Excellent food and service. All organic and mostly locally sourced. Great for breakfast, lunch, and coffee breaks. They will be expanding in early 2014 and will then be offering early dinners also.

“lovely little spot”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 7, 2013

Very quality food, nice service, great coffee! Only complaint--and it's not really a fair complaint--is that they don't do traditional brunchy foods, and that for the amt/quality of the food, it IS a little pricey. But they were wonderful about getting us a bowl of cut-up berries for our son, and the ingredients were clearly top-notch.
