    My best friend and I are always here and adore the atmosphere. I have their burgers every time and the sweetie fries are to die for! The price is perfect for a fancier night out.

    Good coffee from RoosLiberty, and great French toast. The savory breakfast dishes looked amazing so I'll definitely come back for that.
  • Zina Z.
    Breakfast is amazing, French Press is a must!! add a salad instead of toast if you like!!! And rice flour pancakes with fresh berries!! ;)

    Good place for an intimate meal or birthday dinner. A little overpriced, but the food is good. Sunday brunch is worth trying.

    I used to go to Sava's frequently but tend to avoid it now as I feel their standards have deteriorated. For quality and quantity, the food is overpriced and wait staff not the most attentive.

    Delicious breakfast menu that's served until 3:00pm and above average coffee. The space is huge and the noise level is moderate so you can still hold a conversation. Dope pancakes for sure.

    The black bean burger is very citrusy and southwest tex-mex. Bloody Mary's are good. Get a high top table or booth in the back.
