“Sunday brunch with kids”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 22, 2012 via mobile

I recently visited the Birchwood Cafewith wife and two young girls for Sunday brunch. There were a few choices for kids: waffals, scrambled eggs, or oatmeal. My girls went for a bakery item. They both had muffins, and they were great. I had a bite of the bran blueberry muffin, and it was the best bran muffin I had had. Moist and not overaly dense.

I had the brunch scramble. It was good, it had beats mixed with the eggs I thought it made the eggs watery; my wife though it made them great. I guess we haves differing opinion. I would also agree with other reviews, the Birchwood can be very loud so if that bothers you make sure you await for warm weather and sit outside.

I would recommend, and go again. Next time to get just bakery items and to sit outside.

“Tasty but crowded”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 12, 2011

I like this cafe, the food is organic and interestingly prepared. It is always tasty. It is a little pricey considering the portion sizes, and there is often a wait because it is usually crowded. The inside eating area is very noisy. There are a few outside tables and they are good in nice weather but hard to come by.
If you can get there at an unbusy time, it's much better.
