    A great place to sit and enjoy a drink in the afternoon sun.

    Please don’t go here — the service is bad, and the food isn’t good at all. There are better coffee shops with fresh food nearby. Soapbox Cafe, and Notes from the Underground are right down the street.

    You will not regret getting the BBQ chicken sandwich. Shredded chicken, tasty sauce and coleslaw. Bonus: the Marina girls go to Blue Barn so you can eat without wanting to shove a fork in your ears.

    Horrible service. Waited an hour and still no food. Then the waitress made a smart ass comment. 👎

    The Cabernet vinaigrette on the Cobb salad is money.

    French dip sandwich was super good. Good breakfast options. The service could use a little work though, the staff wasn't very friendly. :(

    Compared to starbucks across the street, Crave has better food, more seating, faster wi-fi, and tastier coffee.

    I come here a lot to work on Sundays. Roast Chicken sandwich -- very filling. I wouldn't come here if I was in a rush though. Meals are prepared "lovingly"

    Crave is awesome, I work here a lot. Big tip - there is only one outlet in the place & it's behind the drink fridge. They are cool about you using it.

    The Reuben sandwich at Crave is a hangover killer and food coma inducer.
