    Very unique options. Goat, tongue, and comfort foods like biscuits and gravy. I love the fire scent in the air and woodsy feel. The open face is great. Spicy but wonderful favors. The goat is unique.

    What a satisfying meal for Sunday brunch. The portion is unbelievable. The ingredients and selections are definitely surprisingly tasty. If feeling adventurous, try their very tender Lengua Omelette!

    Paninis are good here, such as their roast beef & white truffle cheese with garlic aioli. Simple and delicious.

    This tiny eatery impresses with an affordable small-plates menu, breakfast-through-dinner hours and a wine list that belies its claustrophobic dining room. Read more

    The servers were really awkward with us. We had a reservation but they still treated us like we had no idea what we were doing. The food was good but we all got sick a couple hours later :(

    Very long wait time. If you don't mind sitting outside for 30-60 minutes it'd be worth it.

    Share the open faced breakfast. Came here really hungry, normally, I don't share my food cause I'm just that much of a glutton, but seriously. Share the open faced or take half of it home.
