“Eh...ok”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 6, 2013

We went on a Sunday morning. The wait was less than 10 minutes. Our server seemed a bit overwhelmed but was still polite and friendly. The places was small but it was also very cute; it had a vintage, nostalgic feel to it. The food was ok, nothing great. I used a Groupon so I can't really complain.

“So-so food, bad service.”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 2, 2013

I've been wanting to try this place after hearing about it from some friends, but I was pretty disappointed. My party of two was completely ignored because our waitress seemed very overwhelmed. And gosh, when she got sat a party of 9, she didn't look our way again once. She had 4 tables, never refilled our coffee, never asked how everything was, and when she put the bill on the table said, "Here's your bill, thanks." We also had to ask a host for a glass of water (because of server didn't come near us), and I watched the host let the server know, the server filled the water, and gave it to the wrong table. I won't go here again, the food was not worth her bad service, and gosh, I need more than one cup of coffee with brunch... please and thank you.

“Good food, awful service!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 10, 2013 via mobile

I've been here twice. The first time on a Sunday, the second on a Saturday. On Sundays this place is packed, there's a 20 minute wait for a table, and understandably, rushed service. The food is pretty good, filling and the price is fair.

Came back on a Saturday afternoon. There were only 4 tables with people at them. However, we barely saw our waitress. After we ordered, she came out to pretty much throw the plates down at us, forgot my drink, and came right back with the check. We never saw her again after that.

When we took the check to the guy up front, we tried telling him about our horrible service, but he just didn't seem to care.

We gave this place two tries, since the food was good, thinking the terrible service was because of how full they were the first time. The second time, the place was empty and we still got awful service.

We definitely will not be going back.

Try Pach's Place on Bay to Bay and Bayshore. It's right around the corner. The service is excellent, even when they're full. They are a locally owned small business, and its a family feel in there. Food is good and similarly priced.

“SKIP & Eat somewhere else”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 4, 2013

Food is not very good (potatoes are greasy and have bacon in them, which is tough for a vegetarian since they come on the side). Very crowded, and not a good place to bring your kids.

“The Brunchery is a great breakfast”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 30, 2013 via mobile

We had three for breakfast/brunch and it was all pretty good. The eggs were a tad greasy but the grits and everything else was good. My husband got the burger and says it was really good. On a scale of 1 to 10, his burger was a solid 8 with a 10 bring pretty hard to attain and a 9 being exceptional. Definitely above average.
