“VERY GOOD!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 30, 2012

It was very busy when we go there but only had to wait about 10 minutes. There is a little coffee shop attached to the cafe so you can wait in there and get a coffee while you wait. The food was excellent and very good portions. It is pretty small so some of the tables were pretty close together. Wait staff was excellent and always checked up on us to make sure everything was ok.

“Fun crowd”

Always a lively crowd, a variety of choices on the menu and consistently good food! From a hamburger to a salad to entrees you can please a lot of different people in one place.

“Excellent service and good attitude”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 11, 2012

We had a table out front on the patio where the numbers varied between 10 and 20 - never less than 10 with drinks on order and pizzas in full flow. Great evening .... OK not cheap but fun!!!

“Excellent classic”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 21, 2012

Basix, which is owned by the same people who own Marix just behind it, made its name as a place where you could brunch with the rich and famous regulars who lived nearby (Madonna, Brad Pitt and Jennifer Aniston when they were married, etc) and do so in a place that catered to a largely gay clientele (read: good value, great food, top notch service and healthy options). It is still the same today. Love is perhaps not a strong enough word to describe how I feel about the multigrain blueberry pancakes. The coffee is really good and the service is always attentive. I don't make it there often enough.
