“Great Quick Breakfast & Lunch Spot”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 21, 2012

The Duck Confit Hash is special. So are the salads and chicken salad sandwich. I wouldn't recommend the Lemon Tortilla Soup. It sounded unusual when I ordered it, and it lived up to those "unusual" expectations.

“Favorite Breakfast Sandwich”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 20, 2012

Can be a little on the pricey side but worth it. I had been there before and my husband hadn’t and it can be a little overwhelming when you first enter. There are specials on the board but finding menus, especially when it’s crowded can be difficult if you don’t know where to look. The staff could be a little more helpful in that area. That said, I love the bacon, egg and cheese breakfast sandwich. It is the best. Also recently tried the chile poached eggs and now I will have to alternate between the two. Oh, and they have orange marmalade, which always is a plus in my book. Really appreciate the fresh take on breakfast.

“Great breakfast and lunch”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 17, 2012

Healthy and SCRUMPTIOUS, food. I have eaten here for years and I have never had anything less than fantastic food here. Get here early or outside of peak breakfast and lunch hours because it's usually very busy.

“Busy and noisy, but for a reason”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 16, 2012

A great breakfast and lunch place,but small and noisy. Try to avoid during summer Saturddays when locals visit the farmer's market on the capital square. Waitstaff is excellent and the kitchen will prepare things to order, like egg white omelettes. Wonderful baked goods and specialty coffees.

“Outstanding!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 13, 2012

Yes, it cost me $14 for breakfast, but it is one of the best breakfasts I have ever had. I got an omelette and a side of yogurt. The table had jam in a jar, spread into the bowl of yogurt - fantastic. The omelette was delicious. If I had known about this place earlier, I would have had breakfast there every morning. Only downside: the place is busy (probably because it is so damn good), so a bit of a lineup and wait for a free table.
