“A Pleasant Surprise”
Reviewed January 7, 2014

My wife had been going on and on about this place for a while now. Unconvinced, I reluctantly agreed to go. While the menu offers a lot of slightly unusual things, there is not that much to choose from. That being said, the fried egg sandwich was beyond delicious and was a very hearty size. Looking around everyone seemed to be enjoying their dishes and drinks. It had a cool atmosphere and I ended up having a nice meal and a good time. There's no real clear directions on where to park (parking deck nearby) and the salads have a lot of fancy lettuce that is not green, but other than that I can't complain. I'd also have to recommend one of their boozy shakesl they are delicious and stronger than you might think.

“Great food, Awesome atmosphere, Good price”
Reviewed January 2, 2014

Amazing location. Beautiful decor. Wait staff was hipster polite. The food was awesome though.

Not a long wait to get in. Great coffee. Couldn't have asked for anything more. I love every little thing about this place. The food was perfect.

My husband and I even went back the second day of our trip. We got the:
-Salmon Cakes Benedict
-Build your own omelet
-Brunch Burger
-Eggs Benedict
-Doughnut
-Half order of challah French toast with fruit compote

“Delicious rich food”
Reviewed December 1, 2013

It's fairly stereotypical "comfort food," but with a twist. For example, the hummus is Butterbean, not garbanzo! The spinach salad is wonderful, but with butter beans and a couple of poached eggs! The hamburger is a double, although it appears that it is always cooked well done. We have eaten there twice, and my husband has ordered the braised short rib both times -- apparently, he cannot find anything else that appeals to him.

Menu is not broad, but it is delicious, with breakfast served all day. Little for someone with food restrictions (carbs, calories), but perfect for people who want tasty, rich food.

“Yum”
Reviewed November 23, 2013

Always great food and plenty of it. If you don't fancy a bloody Mary with your brunch, then indulge in a latte while you wait for your food. The special yesterday was blueberry sour cream pancakes with lemon sauce. Seriously. How could you pass that up? The eggs are always perfectly cooked in whatever fashion you like them. The atmosphere is fun although the music is way too loud. Great place to take out-of-town guests for something that's different and delish.

“Great place for breakfast”
Reviewed November 19, 2013

We were visiting from out of town and made a list of all the place to eat breakfast. This place ended up ranked number one by my husband and number two by myself.
He had a custom order omelet with all his favorites inside. I had the pancakes and bacon with a fruit cup. All tasted great. There might be a bit of a wait but worth it.
Fun, funky atmosphere. We would certainly visit here again.
