Got here are 10:30am on a Sunday and anticipated a long wait... Honestly it was about 15min before we were seated. Coffee is Intelligentsia which is the best - great start! We ordered: - Corned Beef Eggs Benedict (get this you won't regret it) -Three Eggs + sausage (sausage was da bomb) -Western Home Fries (good, wouldn't order again though)... More

Great place to walk into for amazing Boston waffles with fresh fruit. Good service, no waiting, child friendly, good coffee, you can draw on the paper on the tables which kept children and adults busy! Definitely come back here!

They can be busy and a bit of a wait, but keep an eye out for counter seating to bypass the line. The vibe and food is top notch :)

When there is an hour long wait for a restaurant, there is a good reason for it. The wait was worth it as the food was wonderful. Our waiter was very knowledgeable and guided us throughout the menu. The choices are plenty and the food was delicious. I highly recommend eating here and yes it is worth the wait.

Sorry to have to write this, because I live in the neighborhood and have generally had good experiences dining with friends here. Not this time. I went in solo, mid-morning, when the restaurant was about one-quarter full. I ordered orange juice and French toast. The juice came quickly. After I'd waited about 10 minutes for the French toast, a couple... More

Hi Nate, We felt terrible about this and I am sorry you had this experience. When the manager realized the ticket had not gone through to the kitchen, she tried her best to help you but I realize you had waited too long and wanted to leave. We could have had it to you immediately. Once in a while, the... More

Food is excellent. I dont like theyr new electronic payment unit that gives you choice of various tip percentages even when 20% was already added with group of 6. You are reluctant to press the "no tip" option while you're already payimg 20% in that case.

I really like this place. OK, the waffles I had were average, as was the bacon. But the staff is great, the restaurant is cute, and it has a really cool feel to it. I would go back.

This cafe is obviously a neighborhood gem. It was busy when I passed by early in the morning on my way to yoga and just as busy when I stopped in for lunch after yoga. The menu has a great mixture of meat and veggie options. I had the belgian waffles. The cream was freshly whipped and the fruits were... More

A bit noisy but the menu has selections for all tastes. However the omelet with salmon, bacon and avocado was not edible--just too much fat. The gorgonzola bacon omelet was terrific as was the one with fig and procuitto. And the biscuits are not to be missed. The place is small so make reservations. Once we were seated the waiter...
