    Had the pancakes, banh mi with home fries, and breakfast sandwich. Would get the banh mi and breakfast sandwich again but the other items were so so.

    The food was great, but the service left a lot to be desired. I understand that we were there for Sunday brunch, but our server wasn't very personable and our meal felt so rushed.

    The French Toast is very plain. But the pork belly with curry and kale is awesome

    Some of the best pancakes I've ever had--light and fluffy. Blueberry and apple toping. Not cheap, but worth it. In summers, less crowded. No line.

    We went here for brunch and loved it! Sorbet mimosas were fantastic. Try the cantaloupe sorbet mimosa with a splash of cran apple juice! Brie stuffed French toast and steak Sammy were good too!

    Primal/paleo people: get the omelette of the day with grilled sausage on the side. Don't forget to drink a cappuccino with that.

    Freshest, most delicious brunch in town (hell, in the state). And as good as everything else is, the burger is in a class by itself. Don't fiddle with it, just accept it as is and embrace perfection. Read more
