Wait time 1 HOUR, on a sidewalk. Overpriced and overrated! Staff not nice and not welcoming. They are rude and cold. Would not recommend. The bathroom looks like a nightclub with lights and lasers in every directions you don’t see where you do your “business”. Also only 1 bathroom so the wait line is almost longer than being seated. And the food is cold!

Delicious lemon blueberry ricotta pancakes with eggs, bacon, seasoned potatoes and toast. Good size portions. Friendly staff andcool painting of bathroom walls. Glad we got there before 9am as there was a lineup by 11am.

As expected, there was a line down the block when we arrived around 11AM. We came during the week after Christmas as a group of 4. We waited for a little less than an hour and in my opinion, it was totally worth it! I really loved the pecan french toast and the multiple drinks we had. The space itself is small and tight, but staff is super friendly, there are a ton of options, and they all taste great!

Very disappointed. I ordered French toast, as I wanted to try something other than eggs; I added a side of bacon. Needless to say, thank goodness I ordered the bacon. All I got on my plate was the ONE slice of French toast. That's it, that's all!! No slice of any fruit to garnish not even a sprig of parsley. Very very cheap. Even La Belle Province gives you a beautiful plate ,regardless of what you order, and the price is better. Very sad to see the cheap approach for a very expensive slice of toast.

This is a trendy restaurant with fantastically delicious food. The service is quick, friendly and efficient! I always want to eat breakfast here. The portions are huge. My absolute favorite is Sweet, Savory and Crunchy Eggs Benedict! .
