Great funky spot. Food is inventive. Their eggs on paleo are a great option. They are trying to be different and are managing. Staff friendly. Best matcha in the area.

Dropped in here after house hunting for a quick lunch. We were seated in a quiet area at the back of the cafe and service was good. The menu had a good choice and encompassed both breakfast and lunch choices. Drinks were also delicious. Would...More
