The food and service were really good. The place was packed, but we got seated and waited on immediately. The food came out quickly consider the crowd. The only minor issues was not receiving avocado that we ordered.

Nice place. I’m familiar with Yolk from visiting the Yolk in the train station several times. This location is a little smaller but great Yolk food as always and attentive service as always.

We can here for breakfast on a Sunday morning. This place is a complete zoo. If you can't get here before 10, be prepared to wait at least an hour for a table. It's loud in here too. It's WORTH IT! The food is amazing!!!
