Fun and funky spot for brunch. There was a continuous assortment of fresh platters brought out for the brunch. Great flavors. The interior is cool too. A good place that’s one of a kind off the beaten path.

I would not come back or spend money here again. They don't maintain the place nicely and didn't act professionally. Wouldn't come again

Though it is only open Thursday through Sunday, this place is well worth the wait. I love their blend of Asian, middle eastern, Indian, Greek, and American cuisine. Even fussy, non-adventurous eaters will find something delicious here.

We had brunch here with family and friends the day after our wedding. I loved the buffet offerings - they were creative and mostly vegetarian. We had people from ages 4-87 in our group, and everyone enjoyed their meals.
