I love this place. I can get an awesome breakfast sandwich and sit with friends or just a bagel and cream cheese to go. Everything is good and the staff is always so kind.

Go out of your way for this joint. Coffee was fantastic and the blueberry muffin was great. It was even better when they grilled it! Their t-shirts are pretty cool too!

I love their breakfast menu! Amazing bagels, awesome omelets, and the best bacon in town! Their outside seating is in a cute backyard setting, and the indoor setting is small but cozy. Also, perfect to bring kids!!!

Been here twice, once as a visitor to SoPo and now as a resident. Both times, there was a short 10 minute line, which is always a good sign; a line to show that locals alike love this place, but short enough that it's not...More

Frequently referred to as a "Locals" place, after one visit you can see why. "Funky" is a description associated with the decor and it appears very appropriate. Considering all the other restaurants in the area, you think you've arrived at a closed or deserted "shack"....More
