    Awesome benedicts, especially the crab cake one. Do be aware that the breakfast menu is only served till 2pm, so keep that in mind if you want to order one of their benedicts.

    I have a feeling that people who left negative comments here were out to have a bad time. I have been a regular customer for many years, great food, wonderful people, cool environment. Try it!

    Note the customized pizzas on last page of menu. They're perfect size for one person and various combos I've had have all been terrific. Service here has always been great, by the way.

    Fresh food (burgers are da bomb!!!), good service, moderately expensive when you order drinks (spiced apple cider!) and dessert (key lime pie!)!

    The go-to spot for breakfast in South Evanston. Equally good at both egg dishes (like the benedicts) and the sweet stuff.

    I was pleasantly surprised at the innovative menu and the fun decor. Then as I left I saw that the "no weapons" sign hidden from the outside behind Halloween decorations. So I won't be returning.

    I like this quirky restaurant, but for all the staff running around, it took some effort on my part to keep my water glass from staying empty.

    Great food! I love the Tandoori Chicken Sandwich, sweet potato fries and apricot flakey (with breakfast). Soy Mustard Vinaigrette (dressing) great on any salad.
