“Unexpected veggie delight!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 30, 2014

Delicious heirloom tomato thin crust pizza with a veggie side of fennel confit with string beans and carrots. They have wonderful sourdough type grain bread that is yummy with or without butter.

“Only stop if you are desperate!”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 28, 2014

Not worth the money. If you have a lot of time in which you want to stretch your legs then stop. It's pricey, the day we were there the cashiers were having a terrible day. And they let us all know that. The line was painfully long. The service extremely slow. The food bland. Overall, not worth the stop.

The restrooms were clean . And the line at the restroom much shorter than the one for food.

“We went despite the negative reviews”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 27, 2014

We had to wait for 15 minutes for a table, but it WAS Saturday..the food was delicious!!! I had a great wood fired pizza and my guest had a delicious humus and avocado sandwich . We had a LOVELY server, dark haired girl, who was SWEETNESS personified! It's so important anywhere that the servers are friendly and professional..we almost didn't go because of the experiences of previous customers with bad service!

“Rich and tasty sandwiches”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 23, 2014

Nice outside area, large tables, good for a lunch stop. For US standards the coffee is spectacularly good (European travelers will know what I mean ;-). Also check the small art shop next door.

“Mixed bag and pricey”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 22, 2014 via mobile

The omelette and potatoes were very tasty, but $18 for a blt sandwich was ridiculous. Fun and funky atmosphere.
