    The Baja and Irish scrambles were both tasty and are best paired with mimosas.

    Hip breakfast spot full of bizarre paintings, Motown music and comfort food breakfast platters that are mouthwatering delicious. Matt's Morning Slider with cafe potatoes is heaven in your mouth.

    Great drink and tap list! Always changing beer but always have good craft beers! Dinner entrees are much more pricey than lunch but very good! Easy to spend over $35 a person on dinner!

    No longer a laid back, reasonably priced soup and sandwich joint. Now a high priced bistro with an extensive bar and staffed with (very nice) hipsters. Pretension with a side of vegan.

    Don't ask for oil and vinegar separately for your salad dressing. Foreign concept here apparently and they will speak audibly about you in the open kitchen.
