Stopped in on a Saturday around noon and got seated right away. Staff was great, menu was filled full of unique items. Hash was fantastic. Pricing was in line with anybody else. Glad we stopped.

You do not want to eat here - our server (female) was unfriendly and her service was spotty at best. Toast with breakfast (granted, we did ask for it to be prepared "almost burned") was totally burned - crust completely black. Save your money for...More

A corner neighborhood cafe, be prepared to wait. It's a small place. Delicious french toast and breakfast burrito. We experienced good, attentive service. Despite a lot of people waiting, we were not pushed to turn the table. Parking can be a challenge as it's all...More

Well this is definitely a trendy looking restaurant in a place that I will definitely come back to with family or friends. The food was excellent. And while the menu was small, the options are lovely. However service was very just mediocre. We tried to...More

Love this spot. Had brunch with Family. Restaurant does not take Brunch reservations so we waited a short while - noted the line up thinned out considerably after 12:30. Menu items really hit the spot - food was tasty and portions plentiful.
