“Delicious breakfast in a cozy, chic setting”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 5, 2010

From the strong coffee to an appealing, long list of options to whet any breakfast preference, this is a mouthwaterng find in the heart of Metro Denver's shopping district. I was promptly seated and served within minutes of making a selection by friendly wait staff. The omelette options are varied, and with crispy home fries and toast, this is a hearty breakfast with a right-sized portion. If I lived in Denver, this would be a favorite and a great place to treat guests.

“How Do You Screw Up Pancakes?”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed August 16, 2010

First of all, there are so few good breakfast places in denver (there are two great ones, but impossible to get into). The wait for 2 was about 25 minutes, although there were open tables. It took about an hour and a half to get our food, other tables were complaining about the service time, and many were getting up and leaving. The pancakes were terrible...completely tasteless. Not to mention the hair that was found in both of our dishes. You would think that at Sunday brunch they would be at their best....

“Bland food...would not return”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed August 4, 2010

Nice location and pleasant atmosphere. The food was horribly bland and cold. The toast was stale and hard. The bacon was barely cooked - had to be sent back for cooking. Hardly any flavor at all to the food. Poor choice for breakfast

“Wonderful brunch”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 29, 2010

This was recommended by the concierge at our hotel as the ideal place for sustenance before attacking the local shopping centre. Do have the strawberry cheesecake French toast, my wife complained when I ate half hers! A perfect brunch on a wonderful spring morning, . Address is now 235 Fillmore
