    Don't believe the hype about vegan options. They don't have a clue what they're doing. Apparently you can't even have the fries. Really?

    Got the red flannel. Was delicious. I don't like beets big I think some mushrooms would have been a good substitute. The jam and hot sauce were delicious.

    What's not to love about the combination of inexpensive prices and touches like homemade hot sauce? It's small and normal to wait in line, but that doesn't deter their following. [Eater 38 Member]

    The crab cakes and eggs are out of bounds. You can also never go wrong with their soups, no matter how funky it may sound, I can guarantee it will be money.

    Get the muffin of the day for a light dessert. Buy a bottle of the swat sauce. My favs? BLAT sandwich or the Red Flannel Hash with Tofu instead of eggs. Preserves of the day is always good.
