“Very Good Neighborhood Yummy Breakfast Food”
Reviewed August 24, 2014

We came here for brunch in the midst of a workshop. One of the great things about this place is that they seem to be able to accommodate large groups from your Yoga workshops such that people have a good lunch experience without feeling rushed and we get back on time.

We are mostly vegetarians and there were quite a few vegetarian choices. I wished that the chilaquiles had been made with some of the excellent soy chorizo that is now available. That's what I would have had if I'd had the choice. Instead I had a wild mushroom omelette with truffle oil accompanied by roasted rosemary potatoes and cheddar and scallion potato cake ( by mistake). The rosemary potatoes were a bit over-roasted, nicely crispy but not at all soft inside. The potato cake was rather bland without much cheddar or scallion flavor. The best dish, however, was an Asian cole slaw for which the place is known locally. It includes ramen noodles, several types of cabbage, roasted peanuts and a dressing of rice vinegar and toasted sesame oil. Delicious!!

It was quiet and uncrowded when we were there during the noon hour and the service was swift without being rushed and friendly. (When I noted the error about the potatoes on my plate, the server just brought the additional potato cake.) And the price was right. It is not outstanding preparation, but very good neighborhood yummy breakfast.

“Great Sunday brunch spot”
Reviewed June 2, 2014 via mobile

Had a nice experience sitting on the patio with family enjoying Sunday brunch. The food was delicious and we all enjoyed our meals. The menu featured some interesting twists on the usual breakfast offerings,but also had a few traditional items. We also really enjoyed the outside dining area.

“Nice local restaurant”
Reviewed March 24, 2014

Yesterday was our 3rd visit to Juniper 61 for brunch. We were there about 1:00 & it was busy, but not full. We got seated right away. Hubby had the special of corned beef hash, I had veggie omelet & son had southwestern chicken Benedict. We all decided that the hash was the best. The Benedict was tasty & different. My omelet was full of nice big pieces of fresh veggies, but the omelet was dry. We like supporting local businesses. The menu is varied & interesting. We will definitely return for brunch & dinner. The only real downside was that the coffee was too weak for our liking.

“Excellent find”
Reviewed February 14, 2014 via mobile

We were led here by a promotional discount coupon. The neighborhood location is a little funky. I came with no expectations, but was pleasantly surprised. They were packed so we ate at the bar. Service, Guinness on tap, and the meal was excellent. Both my wife and I loved our meal. Will definitely try again and recommend.
