    Excellent brunch specials and food is pretty good. Service was on the slower end but it's a great spot considering how busy the area can get

    If it's a nice day, definitely sit in the back garden. The brunch menu has some good options & the extra $4 is worth the included 2 cocktails.

    Open 24 hours! They have a surprisingly spacious back patio with lots of seating...though I question the decor.

    Gorgeous location, excellent staff. Food was good at and a decent price for the surroundings. And yes, do get the carrot dressing on the salad.

    Open 24 hours with patios in the front and the back. Grolsch in the bottle and a chai that will make you spit out every other chai you try from here on out.

    Their salads are huge portions. The yaffa salad with chickpeas, olives, carrots, with grilled chicken is a great healthy option.

    I really don't like eating alone, but I've come here by myself just for the salmon omelette that is served during brunch. So worth it.

    The Cajun chicken is excellent. $12 gets a salad (the house dressing is terrific), rice, steamed veggies, & spicy blackened chicken.

    Definitely vegetarian and vegan friendly. They offer quinoa as an option instead of rice if you wish, which is awesome :-)

    Dont eat magic brownies and come here for coffee. The place is operated by AI cyborgs who communicate via MS Word and telepathy. Consider yourself warned.
