    Baked eggs and avocado. Ask for extra bread and apply food heavily to your piping hot open faced sandwich.

    Lovely dinner! We made a meal out of the different vegetarian sides and apps, and it was filling, and delicious. Get the cauliflower shortbread, and the Haricots Verts!

    Cute lil spot! Nice menu.. Not sure if it's farm-to-table, but it certainly seems and tastes like it. The staff isn't as friendly as the name might imply, but hey, can't win em all.

    Eggs and steak are good, almost no vegan options, but vegetarian friendly! Love the atmosphere

    Good food- but, the slowest service I've had in any nyc restaurant

    Space can be a bit loud but otherwise nice. Food was good overall. Enjoyed the celery root and cauliflower crumble.

    I'm not an oatmeal guy but a tip said to try the oatmeal. So I did. Surprisingly good. Still not an oatmeal guy but I would definitely get it again here

    The best steak and eggs I've ever had. Steak is tender, it's mixed together with the over easy eggs, and comes with finely chopped sweet potato hash.

    The scene is cool but the food is a bit overhyped. The chicken Harissa sandwich is hugely overrated. The bacon, however, is not.

  • Cole K.

    The Harissa honey roasted chicken sandwich is super delicious, and is served on a warm, crusty on the outside and soft on the inside baguette. Get it (and don't forget the pickles).

    I would start a religion around the maple thyme bacon.

    Baked eggs are the way to go with a side of sausage or smoked salmon 👌

  • Perri S.

    I'm not kidding when I say their bacon is the best bacon I've ever had. I usually don't order oatmeal out but it is phenomenal here.

    The ambient is very dark and the staff is not very kind. We had to wait 45 minutes standing only because 1 person was late." You cannot sit down at the table without all ur friends". Good the bagel

    How do they not have normal hashbrowns, potatoes, or fries

    A great date spot at night or a meeting spot in the morning.

    Baked eggs were great. The ricotta & pear dish - so so.

    Annie Kearns · February 8

    Their mochas are delicious . Food seems just subpar but good atmosphere

    Great brunch and coffee. Occasional celebrity sighting as its a neighborhood favorite.

    Lee Byron · January 10
  • Barry B.

    Could we get just a regular salad here with lettuce, tomato and cucs?

    Barry Bloom · January 8
  • Catherine C.

    Bad WiFi signals here, but great ambiance.

  • Mario P.

    Fratty atmosphere and indifferent service. The eggs baked with avocado were so overcooked that they were almost hardboiled. The drinks were overpriced at $12. I would have paid $8 max.

    Great quiet spot in Noho. Breakfast until 4:30pm.

    Brunch cocktails were not that good. Egg sandwich was uninspired. Ambience is very enjoyable

    Alex Limpaecher · December 28, 2014

    Quinoa & kale salad is yum

    Shannon O'Flynn · December 22, 2014
  • Ros O.

    Spiked cider, seared Thai beef - amazing explosion of flavour

    Ros O' Flynn · December 22, 2014
  • Barton S.

    Ignore the rest of the drinks menu and get the spiked cider. It's delightfully smooth.

    Barton Smith · December 12, 2014
  • Omar A.

    I came here for a sandwich, which was great (egg with salmon on multigrain), but that coffee...probably one of the best brewed coffees I've had in the area...sorry La Colombe.

    Omar Ahmad · December 7, 2014
  • Jeffrey G.

    I like the Thai beef salad, great vinegar dressing, although I wish it were organic grass fed beef

    Jeffrey Glueck · December 1, 2014

    Maple bacon frisée sliders. Don't skip 'em.

    The Quinoa is incredible!

    Great for brunch

    Ryan B · November 10, 2014
  • Steven H.

    Warm and intimate restaurant with friendly staff, interesting options on the menu but the food and drinks are over priced

    Steven Hassall · November 7, 2014

    Great food but be prepared to wait for it.

    Breakfast for lunch? I'm in! They serve it until 4:00pm!

    Get the Baguette French Toast with real NY syrup for brunch. Lovely trendy cafe in a basement off Bond. By the famous building with the gold dancers on the facade.

    Chet Mancini · October 27, 2014

    Te steak was amazing and the mushrooms added perfect texture - also the goat cheese and bread!

    Lisa Porter · October 22, 2014
  • Tash C.

    Service is really slow but the food is great. The cauliflower crostini and the lamb meatball appetizers were great. Pasta was quite tasty as well.

    Tash Concepcion · October 19, 2014
  • Sexy L.

    While the food was delicious (I recommend the flank steak), the service is a tad slow.

    Sexy LF · October 19, 2014
  • Cristina R.

    The service is really slow. No one seems to have more than 30 second recall for orders. But the food is good and the ambience is good.
