    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.

    Order their amazing scones at the counter!

    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.

    The Carriage House Burger is a handmade burger made with local grass-fed beef, topped with grilled onions, sundried tomato puree, cheddar, and BBQ mayo on ciabatta.

    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!

    The brioche French toast is the greatest thing ever. The 45 minute wait is not.

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

    Shion Guha · June 9, 2012
  • Jesse M.

    If you happen to see the rabbit pâté on the menu, it's worth ordering more than one.

    Best bacon anywhere! The simple 2-2-2 breakfast is delicious - PERFECT eggs! Don't miss the French Toast stuffed with almond paste frangipane - it was a special and the stuff of dreams.

    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
