    Relaxed and tasty food that you will want to repeat any day you don't know where to go.

    Went for lunch on weekdays a few times. This place is full of professionals working in the area as well as moms with kids. The three giant chocolate cookies are must.

    Loved the brick pressed chicken with mashed potatoes with a side of really delicious Brussels sprouts. Really good American food.

    My FAVORITE spot for dinner, dessert, and drinks. For food, you absolutely must get the Brussels sprouts and mac & cheese. I dream about it. (Don't forget to pop downstairs for the photo booth!)

    Avocado Toast with Poached Eggs is on point 👌

    Angela · February 7

    Kale salad

  • Russell H.

    Incredibly loud and salty which makes the food taste good but drink water and prepare for a wait. Food is VERY consistent and in some cases creative.

    Favorite brunch spot. Try the new Breakfast Pot Pie; it won't disappoint!

    Angela · January 29
  • Gregory K.

    Roasted fish sandwich was surprising good and filling

    Gregory Kuebler · January 22
  • Lubor J.

    Quite a busy place with very decent food - actually the lamb chops were the best I've ever had...juicy, tender and precisely "medium". Service is nice and fast.

    The trout schnitzel was out of this world.

    The Beretta, tomatoes and mozzarella was SOO fresh and delicious! Cauliflower Flatbread was good as well! The burgers were cooked to what you ordered. SOOO YUMMY!! Would definitely go back.

    Good mid to high end option with solid cocktails. They take reservations; GREAT for larger parties.

  • Kelli T.

    Awesome restaurant with solid food. I had the pot pie which was amazing. The short rib pasta was also delicious. Don't miss out on the banana dessert. It's very light so it's the perfect end to a meal

    Kelli Tolocka · December 7, 2014
  • Amy M.

    Spicy blood orange margarita and the jalapeño cheese grits are my favs!!!

    Amy Mixa · December 6, 2014
  • Ivan R.

    The order of clams is huge, you can definitely share between 3 people.

    Ivan Rodriguez · December 2, 2014
  • Alexandra S.

    The jalapeño grits are to die for and the eggs Benedict over potato waffles is a must try

    Alexandra Stathis · December 2, 2014
  • Tanay J.

    Great spot for brunch. Make sure you get the warm donuts!

    Tanay Jaipuria · November 29, 2014
  • kate k

    For a lunch that's a little bit of a treat and a little bit healthy, share the cauliflower flatbread and get the kale salad.

    kate k · November 27, 2014
  • Cindy l.

    Hot chips with blue cheese fondue! Also, their bloodies are very spicy-they don't holdback on the horseradish.

    Cindy lau · November 25, 2014
  • Meaghan S.

    Get the blue cheese fondue with homemade potato chips. I promise. The brick chicken is great for dinner and the brunch specials are always on point.

    Meaghan Smith · November 23, 2014
  • Abby S.

    Mac and cheese balls.

    Abby Sewell · November 17, 2014
  • Sarah T.

    Eggs Benedict for breakfast is amazing and the pork chop, chicken pot pie, and gnocchi is pretty great for dinner.

    Sarah Tierney · November 16, 2014
  • What's Good Here

    Go downstairs and get your photo taken using the old fashioned photo booth. Sure beats selfies.

    What's Good Here · November 13, 2014
  • Summer K.

    Go to spot for brunch connoisseurs. Start off with a basket of their sweet, sticky glazed donuts served with warm chocolate sauce. Vanilla bean French toast. Photo booth downstairs!

    Summer Kamigaki · November 13, 2014

    Anything and everything!

  • Insurer

    Отличная тарелка с морскими гадами (1/2 лобстера, большие креветки, устрицы и севиче). Ну и фирменное блюдо заведения - томатный суп с запеченной корочкой сыра

    Insurer · November 5, 2014
  • Nicolette R.

    Solid choice for any meal. Honestly, everything is good here.

    Nicolette Romero · November 2, 2014
  • Robert S.

    Awesome. The open Avenue seating is great.

    Robert Syska · October 28, 2014
  • Edwina D

    Brunches here are my favorite! Get the smoked salmon egg benedict and the potato waffle benedict, they're heavenly! And if you're craving a dessert, get the s'mores! You won't regret it

    Edwina D · October 26, 2014
  • kev/null

    Carrot cake donuts to start. It's an explosion in your mouth. The only problem is nothing else will compare for the rest of the meal.

    kev/null · October 25, 2014
  • Andrea B.

    Always a favorite spot!

    Andrea Barrezueta · October 21, 2014

    Awesome huevos rancheros.

    It's a cafeteria for grownups. That sounds bad, but it's not. It's the best possible version of a cafeteria for grownups.

  • Jason 😜Izzy🎶 S.

    Bring earplugs, very noisy inside when busy. No acoustic dampening.

  • Grishma G.

    Great omelette's, coffee, grapefruit juice, home fries and pancakes

    Grishma Govani · October 5, 2014
  • Buffy C.

    Free brunch drinks with egg dishes! Good deal! Glazed donuts are delicious!

    Buffy Cutler · October 1, 2014
  • Rach B.

    If you only get one should be the fried green beans. Ranch sauce is amazing. Ask for extra.

    Rach B · September 23, 2014

    Awesome smoked salmon bennedict eggs!!!

    Bruno Nastari · September 21, 2014
  • Annie A.

    Always a bit of a wait but decent upscale american food with good drinks. A little over priced but ultimately a solid spot.
