Great place for lunch, brunch or breakfast. Lots of interesting menu combinations, and they make their own varieties of breads and specialty items. The also have an adjacent coffee bar, with lots of pastry and coffee/tea options

Recconended by Hotel D. Fun,college atomosphere. Samantha, our waitress, was awesome, cheerful, very helpful waitresses seemed happy working there. Huge menu choices, delicious breakfast. Waffles were very light and fluffy. Prices on high end. On the way out, stop at the bakery.

I have to first say that most decent eateries in Northampton on a Sunday are very busy with wait times. I also have to say up front we ate here because I broke my first rule of dining "Don't Wait Until your Starving to Decide!"...More

Homemade breads (sunflower seed and pumpkin breads were fabulous!), breakfast poutine with flat-iron steak and eggs, excellent Eggs Benedict selections (Eggs Benedict Sly's Way were Wicked Awesome!) and best hot chocolate drinks I've ever had! A must if you're in the NoHa/Amherst area!

Creative menu and fresh food at a reasonable price. There are often lines and a long wait on the weekends, but there's good reason for that. It's a local landmark that is well worth a visit. Lunch is yummy too and less busy.

This is a wonderful place. Crowded but not overbearing atmosphere with very good NE food. Breakfast items are very good.

They accommodate gluten free diets nicely. Re- comment on the wait. It is a very popular restaurant. Getting there early makes it easy. I never go after 9am.
