I have been going to this restaurant consistently for at least four years, and each experience has been nothing short of amazing.
My most recent visit was no exception:
I came in and announced that I was dreaming of a veggie burger with all the vegetables possible... my dreams came true. (The picture is attached, albeit after a few bites were immediately taken.) I was provided with one of the most amazing things I have ever had to eat. The house-made lentil veggie burgers are like nothing I have ever had, and the love and care that was put into making a warm salad of every imaginable vegetable on top made it all the more memorable. I was stunned. Never has a restaurant made me something so special that only my mother would take the time to do.
Other than the blatant love involved in making all of the food, the culinary skill also has to be taken into account. I have had a taste of pretty much everything on the menu and I can safely say that I have never been anything less than amazed. The house made veggie burgers are bursting with flavor that even the most devout meat eater would appreciate (as my carnivorous boyfriend can attest to!), the corned beef is out of this world and makes for a phenomenal hash and ruben. The eggs are always cooked to your specifications, and the specials...oh the specials! They are creative, enticing, and delicious.
The ambiance is fun, energetic, caring, loving, and overall pleasant. I have always been greeted by the owner (how many other places do you get that?) and I have always gotten exactly what I wanted to eat (if not more).
I understand that some people may find the place loud, but that is a matter of preference. If you are looking for candles and butler services, go to a hotel or a Michelin star rated establishment. The environment is meant to be homey, and that is exactly what you get. For that matter, it is exactly like going into ones own home. You are greeted warmly, served amazingly delicious food, and yes it may get loud, but who's family doesn't get boisterous when thrown together?
Be warned, in the summer you may get shot by a water gun, or if you are inside you may have marshmallows shot at you. But it is all done in good fun and with a sense of mutual respect. Nothing is ever over the line and if it is apologies being to fly all around. I have never seen anyone angry or upset, and energy off all the people who enter is entirely positive. This is not a place for negativity, it just wont fly.
Overall, this restaurant makes me feel like I have come home time and time again. After long absences my face is remembered and I am asked after. I have never left unhappy, and definitely never left hungry. I have not one complaint. Not one.
