“Great place for breakfast”
Reviewed August 27, 2013

I had the brioche french toast which was delicious. Looking around, several people seemed to be eating one of their many benedict dishes and enjoying them. Service and atmosphere were excellent and the prices reasonable. I'd definitely eat breakfast there again.

“Salad not well rinsed”
Reviewed August 22, 2013

While my colleague was more than happy with her vegetarian meal I was not so happy with my salad. It appeared that it hadn't been rinsed enough and I tasted gritty sand. There was also a small worm on the back of one of the pieces of lettuce. That stopped me in my tracks and I just couldn't finish.

“Don't bother”
Reviewed July 24, 2013

I asked for an outside table to sit for a cup of coffee. (There were lots available, both inside and out)

I was told "you can sit at the bar, but tables are reserved for people eating". Who knows, maybe I'd have bought something else. But it was so off-putting, I just left.

Guess the focus of this place is on profits, not people. Not a good biz practice in Boulder.

“Really great food - servers need more training”
Reviewed July 15, 2013

Loved the fresh, innovative approach to the menu! My husband was wildly impressed with his corned beef hash, which featured ample cuts of meat , and since I'm a fan of Eggs Benedict, I loved the amazing Trout Benedict, with slivers of green apple and caramelized onion. Other little touches really made our breakfast wonderful.

However, the service left much to be desired. The hostess staff was friendly and attentive, but 3 servers, including the 1 for our table, were either new or apathetic. Our server took our order and filled our water glasses once - we didn't see him again until we had to flag him down for our check. He didn't touch base after we received our orders, didn't refill coffee, and made it a point to look away from us as he passed by - as if we might distract him with a request. We noticed this with a couple of other servers as well, especially when other guests had to literally get up and go in search of their servers to ask for checks, or raise their hands for a simple water refill.

Our visit was during Sunday brunch, so naturally there was a bit of a rush, but servers had secondaries to help with guests' needs and the flow of the rush, so there really wasn't any reason for servers to be inattentive.

Overall, most certainly worth a visit, but if service matters to you, just be a little more casual about it.
