I’d not classified it as excepcional, but the food is great as well as the restaurant itself. I missed more options in the menu for a dinner or lunch, but there are good options of healthy appetizers to share with someone. The pizza is good...More

Everything was great. I would request the chef dish up a bigger portion on the brussel sprouts. Nat knows how to please the crowd with his serving!

The set price $30 brunch is so much food and really good too. Salad was light and fresh. Breakfast pizza was crispy and tasty. Way too many eggs but nicely done. Didn’t even need the chick peas or French toast but we enjoyed it all.

We were a somewhat large group out on the patio, which was really lovely. The service was top drawer and the food drew raves from virtually everyone.
