Used to have fresh and tasty food. Used to have a really good bakery. Nothing tastes fresh anymore. Menu and decor need major upgrade. Food is mediocre at best. Will not be going back again.

Very popular neighborhood restaurant, especially for breakfast and brunch. Dinner is OK too. Almost always people waiting to be seated. They specialize in baked goods. You get your choice with egg dishes. Many locals order their holiday pies from here.

We needed reservations to celebrate our son's graduation from Cal and we started the process a bit late, so finding a restaurant was a challenge. These people were so kind and helpful! Though they don't take reservations, they were kind enough to make them for...More
