    Annoying seating policy. Criminal coffee policy. Too many good alternatives to jump through hoops for a meal. Won't be back, but think maybe they were just having a bad day. Or maybe I was.

    $20 for salty and too-rich salmon benedict. No english muffin to absorb the runny egg, just some deep fried french fry looking thing. Tattooed hipsters talking about jesus. Yuck! Will not be back.

    this place is overrated - poor snobby service, waay to pricey. It's more a place to be seen by the hip and trendy than actually as a place to eat. Good french toast though.
