    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.

    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!

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

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

    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.

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

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

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

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

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

    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.

    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.

    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?

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