Our waiter was really offish. He acted like he didn’t think that we should be there. The food was good, but not impressive. Over 50$ for two people- a sandwich and entree, I just think it’s a little much. To be fair, we probably would have had a better experience if we had a different waiter.

What an awesome, unpretentious, quality dining establishment! The decor is just so unique and inviting. The service and atmosphere both are top notch. The food for brunch, while not an extensive menu, was just amazing. It is unique and creative, and at the same time comforting and satisfying. The quality is top notch - house made food with attention to detail. And- they had live jazz!!! Great job!

Brunch was awesome. Nadine was very pleasant and recommending. Bread board was a great appetizer--. Biscuits and gravy were better than I imagined. The Veggie hash disappeared quickly by those at the table. Burger was quite a sight and was thoroughly enjoyed--including the potatoes.
A nice touch was the Durst band--some pleasant jazz on an afternoon. Love the atmosphere of this place. Feels local, warm and inviting.

The food was incredible, eclectic and cozy ambiance and really great service. You could feel the cohesiveness of the wait and cook staff. Everyone seemed to really get along, making the experience enjoyable. Our waiter was Richard. He was incredibly thorough reviewing the menu, prompt and attentive. Definitely will return!
