    The Ployes (think thin pancakes) are TOPS, buckwheat, vegan/dairy free yet no less delicious, just DO IT. oh & they also have vegan sausage patties here-just not on the menu- that ROCK.

    If I could pay rent on a booth and just never leave, that's be alright by me. Food is amazing, staff friendly, decor perfect, and Deluxe makes excellent people watching. I often draw people here!

    Lots of vegan items (including new items!) including tofu breakfast burrito, pancakes, tofu eggless curry sandwich, falafel sandwich, pasta, stir fry, soy shakes, etc

    They make their own corned beef hash and it's to die for. Not little cubes from a can but melt in your mouth tender beef, fantastic with eggs and toast.

    Everything on the menu is fantastic EXCEPT the home fries that come with most breakfasts. They are horrible, so substitute a salad or ask for sweet potato fries instead.

    Serves a state-of-the-art organic burger ($11) made from Kobe beef, with a sweet, juicy flavor that can only come from pampered cows. Read more

    Current breakfast special is great: baked eggs and chorizo. Super friendly, attentive staff. Cozy location. Can be crowded Sundays.

    Although not as great as Uncommon Gronds next door its another solid option. Homemade corned beef hash is great!

    Try the Grilled Rachel for lunch…it's a bit messy but definitely delicious

    Make your own omelet is great, as is the roasted half chicken. Paleo folks have several quality dishes to choose from.

    If you order pancakes or french toast, and get a side of bacon & 2 eggs, it's an additional $5.25. Might as well get a Hungry Person - better value.

    Build your own grilled cheese, with such interesting ingredients as avocado, spinach, sliced apple, or a fried egg.

    Mmm mmm mmm. The pancakes (made with sour cream, so they are very fluffy and delicious) are awesome. The place is pretty small, so get there early and don't bring a large party. Read more

    You can choose to get a salad with your omelet in place of the potatoes. Great for those avoiding carbs.
