This is a healthy alternative to many places around here. I sat with friends while they ate breakfast. I had a yogurt parfait and it was good. Everyone really enjoyed the food and atmosphere. It was a block from the Palmer House Hotel.

Why would you go anywhere else? Food is freshly made on the spot. Coffee/Latte's are awesome. Price point is the best we encountered in the downtown core. The variety is such that you can do a different menu item every day. Free Wifi.
