I don't seek out organic, new-agey foods, but this place is really good. I had a apple-kale-cucumber juice (what?) that was excellent and hit the spot. The eggs benedict was pretty much perfect. It was topped with lightly dressed arugula, which cut the richness of the egg, hollandaise, and bacon. Great dish. This place seems to really take food seriously.... More
