I wanted to like this place more. Came with friends and to be fair, all of their food looked great and everyone enjoyed it. However my pancake special - chocolate chip with coconut and a lime cream cheese and nuts was over cooked. Well done pancakes is a pet peeve of mine. The taste was fine and it was filling but just too well done and so quite dry. I will give them another chance but I’ll get an egg dish.
Decor and atmosphere very cool.

While waiting to see a movie at the nearby Kendall Square theater, our group of three stopped by to get a quick bite. It was mid-afternoon on a Saturday, so no lines, immediate seating. Service was excellent, prompt and attentive. Portion sizes were generous. Food - an egg sandwich, a plain hamburger, and a BLT - was awesome, and the bread was fantastic. Pricing was reasonable all things considered (it's Cambridge!).
We will *definitely* return.

Very good overall and would go back for creative brunch/breakfast. Visiting from Chicago and saw the rave reviews. Amazing variety of yummy sounding breakfast dishes, both sweet and savory. Also nice selection of adult breakfast beverages. The "Babe Benedict"was outstanding - poached eggs and hollandaise over dry rub pork on top of wonderful cornbread. The “Greek” poached egg special was good but the bread wasn’t toasted so it didn’t come together like we were expecting. Alex was a great server and had helpful suggestions to navigate the large menu. Definitely use an app to virtually wait in line. There was an 80 minute wait on Sunday at 10a when I reserved our place on the app and when we got there 85 minutes later they seated us right away, after telling the couple in front of us it was then a 2 hour wait.

Be ready to wait a good 30-50 minutes if you're going for a weekend breakfast. But the food is amazing. The prices are not high at all. The decor is truly eclectic.

This place is very popular so prebook and monitor the wait time. The guy scramble, John scrambo and Greek Scramble are highly recommended and were enjoyed by all. Excellent service by Jabari. We will definitely return
