“Great quality food and service on this hip small neighborhood restaurant”
Reviewed July 23, 2013

We found this place by following a recommendation on happy cow. Some items in the menu are organic. Although the menu is somewhat limited, the food quality is very good. They offer gluten free options, including desserts (at the coffee shop). Next door is the coffee shop, then the unique bookstore and a toy store. All filled with fun interesting items. Coffee is great. So, pay a visit for the whole deal, lunch, coffee and shopping. We loved the crowd.

“Will be back!!”
Reviewed July 13, 2013 via mobile

We heard of Poor Richard's because of the fireman t-shirts they were selling. When we went to get one, to our surprise, we found this awesome restaurant!
They have lots of vegetarian and gluten-free options! They pizza was excellent!
They even had a gluten-free beer!
Will be back!

“Average”
Reviewed April 12, 2013

The food is alright. The service is hit and miss at times. Seems a bit disorganized. If you're a family with kids or a younger hipster, you'll probably like it. Otherwise, you could probably take it or leave it. Nothing special.
