have been here several times for brunch and always had a good meal but also came for dinner for my office holiday party and everyone loved the food. Everyone ordered an entre and then a salad to share. Loved everything

We came here based on the Yelp reviews and they did not disapproval. There was a bit of a wait, about 30 minutes for two people. I had the caramel apple french toast and it was amazing!!! If I am in the area, I will definitely be back.

My boyfriend always come here for brunch. One of the first few places we tried together when we started dating. They have great portions and everything is made in house. I love the potatoes and blueberry French toast. Although it's more like cake. I am obsessed.

This place is awesome. I've been going for the breakfast since they open and I've never been disappointed. Food, service and ambiance s great! PS: they have a waiting list that sometimes goes up to 1h, on weekends

Quaint cafe with patio. Food and coffee was delicious! Service was quick and friendly. Breakfast was more expensive than your typical restaurant. But once you see the creative and unique dishes prepared by the chef, you understand why.

Amazing setting. The service and management of the restaurant is excellent. All of this would be immaterial if it were not for the transcendent goat omelet. Tender and flavorful. My new favorite spot in OC

I came for brunch last year and it was amazing. We decided to try their dinner. It was truly amazing. They offered several "tasting menus" each had 4 courses and price includes wine with each course. They also offered alacarte options with wine pairings. We opted for the tasting menus as it took all the guess work out of selecting... More

Pet friendly outdoors. I enjoyed the Lengua Omelet (Slow Cooked Beef Tongue, Queso Fresco & Spicy Tomatillo Sals). The kids had a nice menu that fit them. My wife enjoyed Vegetarian Omelet (Zucchini, Eggplant, Shitake Mushrooms, Gouda, Queso Fresco Pecorino & Basil Pesto) Overall excellent food and service. Thx. Keep it up!

In April I made the mistake of using this forum to editorialize on how Southern California has changed in the 45 years since I was a "Local". I want to set the record straight and review the Restaurant: Service was 5 star and I have only given 5 stars twice before !! Menu was amazing. Never have I seen the... More

Nice pleasant restaurant, not too much noise. Professional and gracious service. Food and wine pairings quite nice. The paired “half pours” is a nice touch. Good matching of food with some really unknown wines. California chardonnay lovers are likely to be either disappointed or very pleased to discover some new tastes that actually enhance food. Now the food: good but... More
