Fast service, and really good food. We both got iced lattes, and enjoyed them. The BP slinger was delicious, get it! The California omelet was very good as well! Cute atmosphere. I would recommend!

“Long wait for mediocre food...”
Reviewed May 11, 2014 via mobile

Neat atmosphere, however my husband and I waited over 45 minutes for our food after ordering! (I need to add that it was mother's day, but almost an hour is a bit much). The loaded potatoes were doused with pepper and nearly inedible. The biscuits were hard and the gravy was just OK. Our waitress was very nice and the mimosas stopped us from walking out. Overall, bad experience and will not be returning.

“Great Coffee and Atmosphere”
Reviewed April 23, 2014

Came in for coffee at early recently and had the best service you could ask for. The server was great in explaning the different types of coffees they offered. The music was excellent as they play a differnet artist every morning. Coffee was excellent and the pricing was as well. This is a hip place to visit if you are in the St. Louis area anytime.

“Service lacking. Very old facility.”
Reviewed April 15, 2014

We were left to wait for our food because of their policy to fill
orders for all tables with childen first. We waited an hour to be served and found the food to be most ordinary.

“Wanted to love it...but....”
Reviewed April 14, 2014

I had read about the awesome biscuits and gravy and other items, so had to visit. 2 of us ordered the b & g and 1 ordered the Ultimate Benedict. Nice atmosphere and ok service. Waited longer than I expected for our meal, the waitress was no where in sight to bring us more coffee. The biscuits and gravy were a total disappointment to the 2 of us that ordered them. Little flavor other than tons of garlic, burnt bottoms of the biscuits and not hot temperaturewise. The potatoes were riced (not grated or cubed) with tons of garlic and what I assumed was cheese, plus they were cold. These potatoes were horrid and I love potatoes and I have never had breakfast potatoes this bad even at a fast food place!!! The Ultimate benedict was good but the eggs were overdone, solid yokes are not what we expect in our benedicts. In all a so so meal. Will I go back, maybe for lunch, but not again for breakfast.
