“Mmmmmmm”
Reviewed September 15, 2012

You HAVE to try their shrimp with quinoa and chick peas. Great (if a bit overpriced) place for breakfast, brunch, etc. Decent pizza. Limited but delicious menu. Strong enough (and tasty) coffee.

“Enjoyable and unique”
Reviewed September 14, 2012 via mobile

Came for breakfast with a group of 4. It was very busy, but to be expected on a Saturday morning. Service was decent. Coffee was amazing! Highly recommended.

“Open 24 hours”
Reviewed September 6, 2012

Food is great & hours can't be beat. The one by the Marriott Wardmen is just a block away from the hotel. I especially loved it after a night tour of the city but breakfasts & lunches are excellent also. Locals and visitors alike love it.

“The food was tasty, but nothing to rave about”
Reviewed September 3, 2012

The best part was the home made chipwich. It also gets very crowded for breakfast, but it's a yuppie diner. The ingredients are very fresh and good. The meals themselves aren't anything to rave about.

“Fabulous food, great location, nice atmosphere”
Reviewed September 2, 2012

The food here in one word, fabulous! Very fresh and tasty with plenty to choose from. I had a 'fresh pie' pizza made into a calzone and you could tell that the person who made that dough knew what they were doing. So good!! Husband had the skirt steak which was also a huge hit. Breakfast served here all day so my daughter had a waffle. It was also very good.

We took dessert to go and it was just as good as the meal itself!

If you're in this area, it is a must-do!
