Ordered "Soft and Creamy" scrambled eggs - got hard and not creamed broken omelette. The eggs had not been introduced to a whisk or even a fork. 1st coffee cold - second was fine. The store was busy but lacked attention to detail.

Thyme does not serve dinner so the menu items are largely light but imaginative and unfailingly good. It is a.popular meeting place for social lunches. The sushi is reasonably good and particularly popular with solo business people grabbing a quick lunch. Altogether a justifiably popular...More

We used to love coming to this place. Such a great location, great vibe, interesting menu. We come back time and again. But this last visit tells me that they have let standards slip. I ordered a plain old cheese burger and although the burger...More
