What a super place. Breakfast and Lunch served all day. Home made, local & organic, all natural. I had the large Citrus Kale salad bowl and it was great! Super value restaurant and friendly staff. Right downtown. Full menu options.

Very busy, long lines on weekends for breakfast. Friendly service, flexible--will make substitutions and custom sandwiches, omelets, etc. I always like to support restaurants who serve local and organic foods.
