    Stuffed kale was very good. Large range of choices for all: vegan, vegetarian, omnivores. Would def come back.

    Love that half the menu is veg/vegan and the other half is for meat eaters. The cocktails are really good. Duck dumplings were a great start

    This place is hyper-California-cuisine with regard to the quality of the food and the technology - you can order/pay for your seasonal meal on small computers at each table. Get the BoHo pork salad!

    Vegans get the Carrot MushroomOsso Bucco from the plant eater menu. Has roasted rainbow carrots, oyster mushrooms, braised Swiss chard, soft-miso polenta, roasted chestnut-shallot jus. #delish

    Holy shi* if you can order the salmon burger , do it immediately. I got it as a special but you might be able to swing it.

    I typically come here for brunch on the weekends. It's fun sitting on the patio outside with a dog. The hostess who usually works on the weekends loves dogs and brings a water bowl.

    I know brunch. So here's what you do: order the "Blue Max" (poached egg special) with a side of applewood bacon. When finished, thank me...preferably via channels like twitter. @tristanwalker btw! :)

    If you read about it in food/ wine,they have it on the menu here. Fresh and yummy consistently the best! Ps if you forget your glasses for reading, they have loaners!

    Agree with comment from Tristan. Sit at the bar on a busy night if you want to see how a well-oiled restaurant kitchen works. Had 2 specials and both were very good.

    great chicken and waffles plate. The waffles are incredible (bacon studded!)...the chicken is tempura battered so not what you'd expect with a traditional chicken / waffles plate but it'll do.

    Such a great place. First time I had brunch and it was very yummy. I suggest the Idaho potato crab cake with poached eggs and a creamy lemon sauce.

    Super Salad was great. And if you want to get it to another level, add salmon. Highly recommend!

    Curried tofu scramble with spinach and crimini mushrooms- guilt free delicious-ness. Give the games on the table a spin. A little cheesy but fun.

    Gluten free? Dairy free? Vegan? You got it. This place can't be more hip/organic/yoga-pants. I only looked at the meat eater section of the menu.

    A great place to go for Gleuten-free eating, everything is clearly marked (though I wish they had GF appitizers!). Also, another vote for the Curry Chicken bowl... Soo good!
