    Watch out for credit card fraud. Card swiped several times and ended up with a $4,000 tab at Macy's in Virginia.

    Goat cheese Orzo Pasta is to DIE for. I got the turkey avacado club and the sangria. This is the quintessential sunny and landscaped brunch spot.

    The line can get pretty long during peak brunch hours but it's definitely worth it! The Migas plate was delicious!! Tell them it's your first time and you might get a free chocolate chip cookie!!

    If you come in the morning on a weekend, expect at least a 45 minute wait. If you're only two people and don't care about sitting outside, see if you can get seated on the bar to skip the line.
