“YUM for everything. ”
Reviewed July 23, 2014 via mobile

My husband and I have been to 9 for all types of meals: tapas, breakfast, and a quick doughnut on the go! We recommend 9 to all. The food is always fresh and delightful. The building is gorgeous and comfortable. The staff are friendly and consistent.

“Excellent good and service marred by poor housekeeping”
Reviewed July 20, 2014 via mobile

We were excited to finally eat
Dinner at 9 Bakery and Lounge
We wanted to leave immediately
Due to the sewage smell upon entering. Since we were meeting the couple who suggested the restaurant, we stayed.
The menu was interesting, the good was delicious and the presentation was delightful, as was the service.
Our entire experience was marred by bugs in my entree, flies throughout the venue, cobwebs in the corners and dirty restroom walls. Yikes!

“Don't let the name fool you; this is a great place for dinner, too.”
Reviewed July 18, 2014

Friends have had breakfast and brunch at 9 and raved about it. Four of us tried it for dinner. We ordered different tapas and salads. The portions, for tapas, were generous. Two tapas and a salad will satisfy any hunger. Our table enjoyed fried shrimp, fried oysters, seared tuna, eggplant and portobello mushroom tapas. Our salads were huge and delicious. Waiter was personable and setting lovely. We'll return.

“Excellent choices for brunch”
Reviewed July 14, 2014

Ive been here before, both for dinner and brunch, and loved it each time. Despite this, it has been a while since I've been back. Sometimes, when expectations are high, you can find yourself a bit disappointed. This most certainly was not the case here, it seemed even better than I remembered. There were five of us, and despite having a fairly full restaurant, our service was excellent, as was the food. We each ordered something different, and all of us were very pleased with our food. We did start out with a couple of their speciality doughnuts, which we cut into pieces so we could all sample the different ones. I also got some to go. The favorites of our group were the strawberry cheesecake and the maple bacon, but they were all good. Another noteworthy point is that no one rushed us out, even as we lingered a bit after paying our checks.

“Amazing food with great service”
Reviewed July 11, 2014 via mobile

We had brunch here this morning while on a long weekend trip from NJ. Everything was amazing! Very fresh and delicious. Their homemade donuts were awesome! Staff was so friendly and accommodating. Would absolutely recommend and return. Literally probably one of the best brunches I have had in years!
