“Great Value for the Quality”
Reviewed April 21, 2013

Customer service was TOP NOTCH. I especially appreciate not having to ask / wait for coffee refills.

Food was excellent, healthy, and came in great portions.

“Best. Pancakes. Ever.”
Reviewed April 7, 2013

Super cool little place (that's not so little) with a unique menu. Loved it so much, went twice in the same weekend. Service was mostly great except for the one woman who very abruptly told a number of us, "If you're waiting for a table, you have to wait outside." Seriously? Probably a nicer way to get us to do what she wants. She was also the one who was a little OCD about the water glasses...take a sip and there she was refilling your glass again. Annoying. Aside from her, the place was fantastic. Just the house alone is interesting. Must go!

“Great place to sit and talk over good food and drink”
Reviewed March 14, 2013

I like the outdoor tables and the huge aquarium downstairs. Nice, peaceful place, smells wonderful, slow paced and relaxing, great tea, coffee and pastries.

“Relic in the downtown”
Reviewed February 26, 2013

I go to the Runcible for the coffee only. It is always very good. The food is hit or miss. The food tends to be a bit greasy. But the place is always packed with students. I assume the breakfasts are better than they are on campus. And on a weekend, who cares if the service is slow.
