    The quinoa porridge is my all-time favorite thing on the menu. Love that you get a 'free' bottle of champagne when you purchase a carafe of oj! Get there early - it gets busy for brunch!

    The chicken & waffles Benedict LOOKS delicious but unfortunately it wasn't. If you're a fan of true, southern chicken & waffles go elsewhere. I love Green Eggs but they missed the mark on this one.

    The food here is excellent. My favorites have got to be their duck Reuben. Hands down. The down side is 8 out of the 9 times I've been here the wait staff is terrible. Step it up!!!

    Portions are super generous!! Red velvet pancakes are perfect for sharing. Creme brûlée French toast is so light and airy. Kitchen sink was my favorite!

    We're probably not the first to recommend the quinoa porridge or the Peanut Butter Crunchy French Toast with blackberry coulis, and we most likely won't be the last.

    Leave your card at home, this place is one of the very few places that accepts cash only. Who really doesn't accept cards nowadays? Other than that I LOVE this place.

    Careful! The "Kitchen Sink" is delicious but rough on the tummy! The tangerine juice is a must.

    the chicken and waffles egg Benedict was surprisingly wimpy and had little to no flavor - definitely a little disappointing considering the portions of everything else they serve.

    Good new brunch addition to this neighborhood. Hangover food portions and a well cooked egg. The prices hit the mark as well and won't break your bank.
