Great healthy food choices. Fresh and tasty. Had the Berry Chicken Salad plate. So great. Many choices for breakfast or lunch. You can also get lunch items available for breakfast too!

I typically go here for breakfast and get the stuffed potato pancakes. I have deviated a few times but not often. They have a few locations and I find the food and service to be equally good no matter which one I am at.

It can be crowded for breakfast. The crepes and breakfast panini were really good! The service was OK as well as the coffee.

No matter what you order everything is exceptional. The restaurant is always busy and there are times you might have to wait 2/3 minutes to be seated at a table. Believe me it is worth the wait. Every meal is exceptional I have never had...More
