“Great late night eats”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 16, 2012

This place was very good, but expectations have to be leveled when going to a diner after a late night of drinking. The crowd was interesting and not trashy. The menu had a great variety and the service was excellent. Good music playing and the staff seemed happy. I plan on making this a regular late night stop when I'm visiting the city.

“Takeout not so hot”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 8, 2012

We ordered takeout from this place via grubhub. When it arrived it smelled lovely, however, it had clearly been sitting around for too long as it had cooled down to the point of being not so nice to eat. I imagine eating in would be much better at this place.

Great sandwiches, quirky atmosphere, great for greasy takeout or hanging with hipsters. A bit overpriced.
