We have eaten herd dozens of times, but almost always for breakfast, as the omelets are great, the ingredients fresh, and the service excellent. Thus time, we stopped in for lunch. What a great assortment of well prepared sandwiches, all with the freshest of meats ad vegetables, and served on varied bread codices. The sandwiches are accompanied by the establishment's... More

Everything here is delightful. Good service and wonderful food. A great neighborhood meeting place. The only reason I didn't give it a 5 star is that I have a hard time hearing in there. The accoustics aren't very good and it's usually very loud.

Ate breakfast one Sunday morning while passing through the area. My son met there, and we had a fine breakfast. Very good food in a very busy cafe. It is very popular, and had a waiting list by 10 am. The coffee was very good too. I'm picky about my coffee.

We actually picked up this place because it had good reviews on TripAdvisor and went there on Saturday for breakfast. We were kind of lucky, because we got a table immediately and after we sat down the line started forming in front of the entrance and remained there until we left. Despite being very busy at the time, the staff... More

They remodeled and although it has a more open feeling, nothing was done to address the noise level. It can be a difficult place to hear others at your table even if you're a table of 4. If I am meeting with friends, I go elsewhere because you can't hear. They have increased their pricing at least twice in the... More

Good food but at premium prices. Coffee is excellent. Service is very good. Portions are on the small side. Atmosphere is just OK. On the whole just very good but..........

Mid -July. They have changed their menu. All the good stuff is about gone. Not much reason to eat here any longer. Too bad. Had a long run.

The extensive menu has every breakfast offering on the planet as well as some unheard of. Coffee thermos keeps refills warm, and staff is friendly and helpful without being intrusive. Very popular, so will be busy especially on weekends.

The BLT was fresh as well as the fruit . Everyone at the table enjoyed their selection. We sat on benches that look like park benches? The coffee was fresh and served in very distinctive ceramic mugs. Even though they were busy, they didn't rush us as we were catching up with family. Friendly and efficient staff. Would eat here...
