I had blackened catfish, and I also tasted the Blue Bird salad, which was also very good. The restaurant was very quiet when we were there, around 8:00 on a weeknight. Very nice atmosphere, attentive service. Would return often if I lived here.

Great spot to get a late breakfast. The menu isn't expansive but they do everything right. I loved my salmon benedict but I was actually jealous of the 17th street special that my wife got. I'll get that next time
