Excellent food. Unassuming. Easy. The chicken with prosciutto and brussells is superb.
Best Mexican brunch in Seattle. Unexpected things are homemade: Chorizo, etc. Will be back repeatedly.
Small. Tidy. Good healthy food options. Delighted.
Punchy espressos. You can always grab a table. People come to work and read, or to meditate under the indie rock expertly curated by the baristas (and for sale as vinyl in the back). <3 this place.
Overrated. Beef tacos were pretty good but kimchi rice (with chicken) was a big miss.
Flawless menu. We went family style with the breakfast board, spinach and sunny-side up, French toast, vegetable frittata +5 more dishes. 2hr waits not uncommon, but worth it.
Superlative pastries in all varieties. The brioche and croissants are unreasonably good.
Best fried chicken sandwich. EVER. Spiced/fried to perfection. All white
Find a friend with a membership. Or at least grab brunch. Everything is to the 9's.
Chocolate Pot De Creme is *the best* dessert in Seattle. There, I said it.
The smallest and best curated bookstore in Manhattan.
Crab cocktail and the Plank-prep'd salmon are just insane. Enjoy it.
Decor, attitude, commitment to authenticity, and food freshness: 8/10. Flavor: 4/10. I had the Rajas and Carnitas tacos, and was shocked. Great tequila menu, though.
Carlos is my man. Sidenote: gotta love the diversity of these tips. You just can't go wrong.
