Standout breakfast spot in a part of town not frequented for its restaurants. Lemon Zephyr pancakes are incredible and I dont even like pancakes. Potatoes which are a part of some main dishes like the breakfast burrito and are served as a side for others are the best around. Nicely seasoned and happily in the middle between crispy and soft.

Monthly lunch with a varied group of friends and everyone left happy (and full). I was skeptical about going to Green Dog as I had been a few times years ago in their early days and was underwhelmed - not bad, just not crave-able. This time my salmon wrap was delicious - well prepared salmon, not rare and not overdone,... More

Sunday brunch is always a good option at green dog cafe. Easy ordering and food delivered to table quickly. Great healthy options for vegetarians and those who just want to eat something healthier. Expect to pay about 15$ for meal and drink.

My wife and I recently had lunch at the Green Dog. When you walk in the door you realize there is no waitress service and the decor is an upstream garage theme. It is far from a comfortable place to enjoy your meal. I had the quesadilla with chicken and extra guac. The taste and texture was terrible. For an... More

I've eaten breakfast here a couple of times. The food really is fantastic. Some of the best breakfast food I've ever had. The atmosphere is a bit of a bummer. Very stark with high ceilings. It feels like you are eating in an Ikea. I get the feeling they take themselves a little too seriously here. Oh - and it... More

I don't think I would return. The outside tables were all stacked with plates. No one was servicing them. Had a hard time finding a clean glass for water. Soup pretty much tasted like it had been dumped from a can. Turkey burger was dry. Heuvos Rancheros was cold. Bloody Mary was the best thing we had.

Excellent locally grown fare. Mushroom ravioli and short ribs were both outstanding. Servers overworked but congenial and well versed on all menu items.

This is an interesting place but not sure it was enough to have me come back. It has an open feel to it with booths and tables which is pleasant enough and some outdoor tables. You order from a counter and the food is delivered to you. The menu is limited. I had a turkey club wrap with my side... More

Not fast food, but we've never been in a hurry when dining here, so that wasn't an issue with us. My wife isn't a big seafood fan and gets tired of the standard Lenten meal of grilled cheese and tomato soup, so this is always a welcome change of pace. The vegetarian chili cheese fries are absolutely wonderful and we... More
