    Steak and eggs is the best dish on the brunch menu, closely followed by the Green Eggs 'n' Hamms. Skip the Royal Bee cocktail, it's overpoweringly gingery. And I love ginger.

    The menu changes all the time, so ignore all the tips that recommend a specific dish that no longer exists. This place has a creative kitchen, so try whatever looks good.

    Blue/Bacon burger was really good. Not the best in the city, but still excellent. Get some fries with their amazing Ranch dressing too.

    This gastro pub uses homegrown herbs and veggies, and has tons of great local beers, plus great burgers! Be sure to sit outside on the patio

    Don't order the sausage and kraut special. It's more like an appetizer than a meal. 1 sausage and a 1/4 cup of kraut for 11.00, really?

    Servers recommend hovering by tables as they're finishing if you want to grab one. Slightly awkward but when it's busy you gotta do what ya gotta do...
