We had breakfast here two days in a row. Nice selection of breakfast items, freshly made and tasty. The only reason this loses a star is my chai was pretty cold both days.

Really friendly cooperative. Excellent visibility of suppliers. And all food fresh and delicious. I had curried carrot soup and superb corn bread. The chai tea latté was to die for. Thoroughly worth a visit. Yum!

Searched for a lunch spot that served locally grown, healthy foods without preservatives and processing. The reviews looked good so we gave it a try at. It is small and rustic. You give your order and pay at the cash when you arrive. I chose...More

Very granola crunchy. Stand in line to order, then they bring your food. Sausage good, veggie egg scramble tasteless. Breads pretty good. Coffee good (and only $1 for a cup). Nice seating, fairly cozy. Pancakes odd but pretty tasty. It felt like a typical Portland...More
