    Food is great, but the service isn't efficient. Restaurant had three tables seated and it took forever for us to get our food. Even longer for them to bring us our change! Probably won't go back.

    Very pretty interior and tasty food, but nothing to get hype about. Just a typical breakfast place. Do NOT get the flan- it was horribly overbaked.

    Friendly service, but sometimes slow. Came for brunch and had a great poached egg dish, the cafe special. Sat in the front because back was closed for a private event -- but looked amazing.

    Food was okay but the ambiance in the back made up for it. Service wasn't too good either

    Great for brunch, good dinner too. The back seating area is like a lovely grotto, though it might be too cute for some.

    hair in salad, waitress lost our check, 2 hour brunch with not one refill of water. On top of that, shrimp frittatas used frozen tasteless shrimp, dense pancakes, cold breakfast potatoes. Never again.

    A linger-friendly patio garden and extensive coffee and tea menu make this cash-only spot worth staying a while.

    Don't let the "cafe" label fool you. Go there for dinner. I find it to be the best kept secret as far as dinner in Brooklyn is concerned. Never a wait and food is delicious.

    Been coming here for years and just realized the fresh hippy juices are the sleeper hit. I got some fruity thing called "peace of mind" pineapple, orange, banana, mango, boom.

    Big fan of "the small cafe". Iced coffee every Saturday and a stellar arugula salad with avocado, portabella mushroom, and goat cheese. They don't have the same lunch salads at dinner tho... too bad

    Their iced-coffee is some of the best in the neighborhood. Nice back garden, but i prefer to eat at some of the other neighborhood spots.

    $21.95 3 course dinner prix fixe is good deal for the quality and amount of food. For any dessert purist the creme brûlée isn't brûlée but is nice anyway with berries. Cash only. Service spotty.

    Been getting my morning coffee here every day for 4 years! Garden out back is a gorgeous oasis in summer. Often busy but forgive the service as the eggs benedict are to die for. Best fresh juices too!

    Get the polenta special for breakfast. It's great with eggs over easy, but make sure to add. Bit more salt and hit sauce, which completes the balance with the fattiness of the eggs and cheese

    The pumpkin pancakes are excellent, but unfortunately they serve you Aunt Jemima syrup to put over them. Spinach/Swiss omelet also very yummy, and great cappuccino.
