    11/10 meal. The lemon butter sauce really brought the salmon dish together, and the hot sauce made the chicken n waffles one of a kind. Will definitely be coming back to get the same thing!

    Wow!!! I had no expectations going here for the 1st time and they crushed it. Deconstructed omelet is genius and the french toast is out of this world good. Already planning a return trip.

    all the French toast is fantastic, the maple butter is delicious, and the crab benedict is one of the best I've had-the crab cakes had so much crab and the perfect amount of breading!

    Worth the wait in line. The Cluck-N-Gaufre (chicken and waffles) is amazing. Nutmeg hot sauce, fried chicken, and sweet potato waffle is a unique take on the classic.

    The front tables can be drafty in the winter but they're perfect in the summer. Get there early if you don't want to wait because this place gets busier every week. Come prepared for riddles.

    Best brunch place ever! Their specials are always so good! I live their benedicts and sweet potato waffles! Just remember to bring your own shampaigne and they will prepare a mimosa for you!

    The crab and spinach benedict special is made with real crab and the flavor is savory. I tried some of my friend's lobster omelet (I'm usually not a fan of lobster), and it was delicious.

    OUTSTANDING!!! French Toast Superflight was to die for. The cheese encrusted hash browns-simply amazing. The Spinach Omelet was so fresh, it's like the eggs were just laid & the veggies just picked.

    This is called the super flight, there are 5 different flavors: blueberry, strawberry, caramel, lemon, and mango. The last one is interchanged based on the seasons.

    Enjoy this fun place for Breakfast or Brunch. Good food, great service and easy location. It will get crowded being popular, but why not sip coffee as you wait for your table.

    Based on suggestions, I tried the Super Flight and Chicken and Waffles. Both were good to me. Super Flight was definitely the best out of the two. Staff attitude can be better though.

    Chicken and sweet potato mom had it, and she said it was rich and may need syrup for it.

    Get the french toast flight to try them all. Though, I will say that caramel is the best.

    Order the french toast flight! Skip the sweet potato hash browns. The chicken sausage & pork sausage are house made and DELICIOUS! Staff very friendly. HIGHLY recommended.

    Such good French toast! Also BYOB, and they offer multiple different juices in carafes to make mimosas. I recommend the grapefruit juice!

    Doesn’t matter when you come; it’s a rocking line and a little wait. Come and put your name on the list; they’ll text you when it’s almost time to be seated. #WorthIt

    Order the French toast "super flight" to get a tasting of their amazing French toast, which includes their weekly special and their menu regulars! Also, the omelets are delicious!

    Their method for seating parties is so backwards. If you're a party of 2 and a 4 top becomes available they'll seat people who came long after you if 4 people are in their party. Not how it works !

    The French toast super flight is pretty great. Not sure it's worth more than a 15-20 minute wait, but it is delicious.

    Best brunch in the city. If the dish starts with the word "executive", it's a smart and savory choice.

    Not good for vegans. But the health nut salad was pretty good! If you aren't vegan, the French toast and omelettes looked amazing!

    As mentioned, French Toast flight is a must. Sweet Potato Hash Browns weren't done or just served way tooo soft. I'll pass on those next time.
