    I currently work here and I just have to say that this is some of the best food I've ever had. I can't wait for the new menu to come out soon as the season changes so I get to try more of it

    This place has almost NO vegan options, everything has bacon or cheese in it. Its not a healthy food place its just hella trendy and overpriced. 16$ for rice and beans? Not too happy.

    Breakfast! One of the best breakfast during my trip to USA.

    Get the oat latte! It's amazing, not too sweet not too bitter.

    This place was better before they remodeled. Now it is over priced and food is marginal quality at best.

    No matter the season, get the savory waffle: it inevitably incorporates something tasty in the batter (like asparagus or sweet corn) and comes topped with syrup, infused butter, compote, and lardons. Read more

    The old menu was much better, since the Restaraunt has reopened the service is un attentive and aloof. Food quality has gone down not a fluke after 3 visits we are done.

    The recent re-model of the dining room is beautiful, except for the freaky wolf paintings, which will prolly be sold before next time we go. I particularly enjoyed the Rhubarb Ginger soda.

    Beware. When they say they can "substitute" salad for chips, they really mean they can "upgrade" you to salad for $1.50 more.

    Quinoa and waffle are not two words that typically rub shoulders, but here the grain joins forces with asparagus slivers and Italian cheese to give this breakfast standby a savory complexity.
