    The food is pricy and comes in really tiny portions. On top of that, it doesn't taste good.So if you want to spend your money on something which doesn't worth it go there,.If not, go anywhere else.

    The Rice Bowl with Tofu is frequently vegan or can be modified vegan :)

    The dips are generous, flavorful and mostly vegan.

    Apart from Josh, this place completely sux. Tiny portions, rude staff, extremely slow service.

    Food is good but the service is VERY slow. We would have tried dessert, but feared it would take another hour.

    Overpriced...go to Gjelina or Tasting Kitchen instead

    Hipster haven at this amazing non-gmo eating establishment. Try the goat hash, trust me.

    The shaved arugula & radicchio salad was super!

    Axe puts together healthy things like a nine grain pancake or granola, and asparagus with heirloom tomatoes and peas. There's also fried egg over polenta or bolognese with housemade pappardelle.

    The pancakes.

    You MUST get the carrot nut bread....warmed up with a little bit of butter. Awesome way to top off the meal!

    The best pancakes .... Share bc they're giant! :)

    Ali King · June 30, 2013

    The pancake can be ordered in a half size. This is key when you share with one other person. Still too heavy for just one person in my opinion.

    Loved the nine grain pancake, toasted country bread with marmalade and house made sausage. They make almond milk in house.

    Sake beef + polenta. mmm....

    Request a table outside by the fireplace. Small plates of deliciousness. Everything fab!

    Beet pasta with Quail Ragu! Delicious!

    It is SO ANNOYING that they won't seat until entire party is here when it is just 2 people. Didn't the owner burn the restaurant down?

    great for brunch. almost guaranteed celebrity spotting. order the multigrain pancake and egg scramble with everything.

    Anneke Jong · June 11, 2012

    Grilled sake beef. Trust me. Get it. And the chicken thighs.

    Relaxed feel, indoor and patio seating. Perfect for a healthy and tasty weekend breakfast (even at 2 in the afternoon)

    California soul food complemented by a wine and beer list that features artisan products and boutique producers.

    9 grain pancake is delicious. Brown rice bowl is very unusual for breakfast but really good and a nice change from typical breakfast food

    brunch, lunch, dinner all good. really fresh stuff made into simple yummy dishes. decor-low visual noise is great. staff super relaxed and helpful. and 3 blocks from the beach.

    Come in for the bacon wrapped dates and the strawberry shortcake. Amazing! You can always grab a seat at the small bar.

    Sam Srini · June 8, 2010

    Make reservations soon. Order the pasture fed beef and steal a bite of the trout from your friend. Ask the bartender for a toothpick. Go home satisfied.

    Try the rice bowl, you can't go wrong!

    Perfect for Sunday brunch! Food made from their own organic garden. Known for rice bowl & multigrain pancakes (unbelievable grain explosion!) but you must try the lentil sausage soup -- heaven!

    Weekend brunch: get the 9 grain pancake. Top 3 of all time. You can taste the grains. In a good way...
