I came here with a friend to chat over lunch. The inside of the restaurant was packed, so we opted to sit outside, regardless of freezing temperatures. The outside area is equipped with massive heaters, which worked perfectly fine on such a cold day. We...More

1) The food is fantastic. You get get omelets cooked fresh along with many other things, espresso coffee drinks, local craft beer, and desserts (sometimes including gluten free chocolate torte!). This is a relatively small business so can get crowded / overwhelmed quickly. Best to...More

Chai latte was good. The strudel was okay, nothing like the ones I had in Easter Europe. My seafood Mac n cheese was actually like soup ... soup of fat. The hangover hashbrown was burned also. So it’s a NO for us.

Closed, but new restaurant there now that serves deserts, coffee, and friendly cats... yes, you can go upstairs and cuddle with a cat for $15.00 per hour. Also, if you find one you love you can adopt!!!

Holy cow, people of Columbia. Why do you love this place? I am doubting my own sanity for actually having the stamina to eat a meal here. Without an ounce of exaggerating, this was the worst dining experience I've ever paid for. Initially, we thought...More

Columbia has a lot of great brunch spots this is definitely top 3 in my opinion. My favorite thing is the side option: loaded baked potato salad. I also like the duck fat fries and tricity melt. Good atmosphere but to be honest staff isn't...More

I love this place for brunch. It has a nice atmosphere and I enjoy the art on the walls. The patio area is nice, too. Even though it’s packed for lunch, I can usually get back to work on time.
