    Ridiculously slow. Took 10 mins to get order, now counting close to 15 mins just to get our drinks. hostess/manager just yelled at the servers publicly. Awk and unprofessional. Where's our food?..

    Food is great. Coffee is superb. That's the ONLY reason I keep coming back. Service SUCKS. Baguette didn't come till end of the brunch and the comment from the manager was" you can eat it or not"...?!

    They really need to step up their service... very inattentive and inefficient.

    Crowded! If you don't want to wait, you might be able to get seating at the bar.

    Brunch here can be packed on weekends, so the restaurant is offering it seven days a week. Among the popular items is a crepe filled with scallion crème fraiche and salmon that is cured in-house. Read more

    If you can find it, you'll be happy you did. European styling and service. Brunch is wonderful. Bacon is cooked to perfection. Try the stuffed French toast only if you want a new favorite.

    Go for brunch and order the Croque Monsieur that’s smothered in melted cheese (in a good way) with a perfectly balanced amount of ham and toasted bread

    The most adorable brunch spot in midtown east. Their French toast is unlike anything you've ever tasted. A crispy outside stuffed with a creamy mix of bananna and mascarpone. Mmmmm.

    Sunday brunch was tasty, organic, and service was a little slow.... food portion was a bit small, at least for me as well :p
