Much of the neighborhood warmth is missing, maybe it's the new decor, or no blackboard or no evening hours. Wait staff was good, food was good...just something missing.

We stopped here for Saturday brunch. The wait on a Saturday for 2 was just 20 minutes. If you're a group bigger than 2 I'd recommend putting your name in with the expectation you'll be waiting for a bit (or send someone ahead). The food...More

Fast friendly service despite the Saturday morning crowd. Outdoor seating was nice and we still had the proper attention. A large number of Breakfast Specials available. The French Toast with fresh bananas and Breakfast burrito were excellent. Would try again to try others.
