“Best breakfast croissant sandwiches”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 29, 2014

Good food, friendly service and good variety of food options. I adore the breakfast croissant sandwiches and usually choose these for lunch as well.

“Best coffee drinks and excellent breakfast/lunch food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 10, 2014

They serve up the best quality coffee drinks (Illy), and consistently offer excellent breakfast without an overwhelming number of choices. Lunch offerings are equally as good. Atmosphere is more peaceful, and adult like, as compared to the overcrowded cafés.

“Gourmet breakfast/lunch - SO delicious!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 9, 2014

EVERYTHING they do at the Purple Onion is very well done... the food is fabulous!!
They're open from

For breakfast they offer so many tasty items, here are a few of my favorites: 1) bacon & egg sandwich (scrambled egg, bacon, swiss cheese & mayo on sour cheddar bread), 2) breakfast burrito (scrambled egg, potato, black beans, blistered corn, cheddar cheese, spicy crema & chorizo or roasted vegetables.. or made with egg whites & chicken sausage!) 3) granola & yogurt with fresh fruit, organic yogurt & honey.

Do not skip the baked items...everything is home made! The pastries, cupcakes and cookies are super tasty! Love their scones!!

For lunch, try one of the home made soups or a yummy salad! The Thai chicken salad is my absolute favorite ...

They offer at least a dozen delicious sandwiches but my favorites are the homemade MEATLOAF (with beef and pork, provolone cheese, confit onions & sun dried tomato mayo on a francese roll), the CUBAN (pulled natural chicken, ham, provolone cheese, pickle, tomato,
dijon mustard & roasted garlic mayo on a cuban roll) and the MEDITERRANEAN CHICKEN
(chicken breast, mozzarella, roasted red peppers, basil & sun dried tomato mayo on a francese roll).


Note: This is not a place where you order traditional eggs w/ bacon and toast... that's totally boaring and you can get that anywhere else in town!
