    Unbelievable breakfast sandwich. Highly recommend it! The maple rosemary spread is grand- brioche is delicious. If I was hung over it'd probably be even better! Can't wait to go again!

    I seriously cannot believe no one has recommended the breakfast sandwich here yet. It doesn't matter if you get it with bacon or without, just get it.

    85% of the seats are taken up by people on their computers sipping coffee-they really need to make a communal table for people doing work so those of us locals who want to meet for lunch can sit!

    I thought it was a total rip off especially for their sandwiches, but I like their curry veggie soup. Can get very crowded and u won't find any seats so might as well just get your food to go.

    Get the oatmeal walnut chocolate chip cookie as a treat that isn't insanely rich. Nom.

    New Orleans Iced Coffee tastes exactly like coffee ice cream (been on a serious coffee ice cream bender lately, so I feel particularly qualified to make that statement)

    Han sandwich is out of control. Popover is revelatory. And if you want to spice up your life, the guest sandwich is a good place to start.

    I wasn't expecting to wait 20 minutes for half a sandwich, they need to either expand their staff, or warn customers about the long wait.

    I paid 18.50 for two mediocre grilled cheese sandwiches. Upon ordering, the woman who took my order gave me a bitch fit and ridiculed my culinary palette. She matter of factly informed me that I suck.
