Great fresh menu and even better staff. This little gem is perfect for breakfast or brunch. Complimentary coffee while you wait for a table was a great added touch.

Seriously.... I think I could go to this place every day until I've tried everything on the menu! Amazing breakfasts/lunch/brunch and their whole grain pancakes are crazy good! Their coffee is just the way I like it... strong enough for the spoon to stand up by itself! :) Their entire menu is focused on organic, whole grain, cage free, and... More

Lots of variety on the menu and all food is very fresh. Service was good for our group of six around lunchtime. Breakfast and lunch food served. Don't be afraid to eat healthy it's very good! I will be back.

Great place to have breakfast. Lots of choices as well and they will make sure you get what you want. I have never ate from the lunch menu but it looks very good also. Everyone is very friendly and will help each other.

We used to live closer and went for breakfast at least twice a month. We don't live as close now, but we did go last Sunday and it was as good as ever. If you have not tried the avocado toast, I highly recommend it. My husband had eggs Benedict and said it was the best hollandaise sauce he had... More

I'll be honest, I'm not much of a chain restaurant person. We have First Watch at home so I didn't think this was for me. There weren't many breakfast places in the area so I stumbled in here. So glad I did. Great decor But the carrot cake pancakes are amazing! Get them.

Have been here several times, as well as the Westport location downtown and have always had good experiences, till today. So naturally, I'm reviewing our poor experience and not the seven or eight good ones. I had the parma hash, which I've had before and is always excellent.

I visited this restaurant with a group of approx 20 people who come here the same time every month for many years. Since they replaced the old facility, they no longer accommodate our group in a timely manner. They know when we are supposed to arrive but they rarely get us seated by 15-20 minutes past our scheduled arrival. The... More
