Fresh, healthy and scrumptious! We always make this a stop on trips to Duluth. Can't beat the unique options. There is something for everyone!

Service was good, food was good , different items on menu than what you would find in most restaruants.had the pork loin, well presented, very tasty. Maybe a little overpriced.

The food was mostly fine, although my daughter thought the syrup on her French toast tasted weird. (She's used to maple. It was described as "maple caramel" and I'm not sure what they did, exactly, but it did taste sort of weird.) The most frustrating thing was the service; the waitress didn't refill my coffee until specifically asked to (it was brunch! coffee refills during brunch should be the default!) and (most annoyingly) she ignored us for about a half hour when we'd clearly stopped eating and were ready for the check. We finally managed to flag her down. You'd think they'd want to turn over the table, but apparently not. (Fortunately, we weren't in a huge hurry; if we had been, it would have been a lot more annoying.)

We have eaten here in the past and enjoyed it the glutes-free selections. However, these seem to have disappeared off the menu...a new ownership, perhaps?

First time in Duluth, Read all the reviews, and was not that impressed! Service was good until I was ready to cash out, water and beer empty, credit card out in sight, and no wait staff! Waited a good 15 minutes! Food was average, soup of the day - chicken veggie - bland. Had the "Spradian " pizza, okay , but not special. It was a Monday night, in Oct., slow season! All reviews say it's a great place, just didn't see tonight .
