The french toast with mixed fruit hit the spot. My Jalapeno breakfast bagel was original and filled me up. The place has a god atmosphere, and even though it was busy, we still had good service.

Busy and can be noisy when busy but the staff are very friendly and the lunches and coffees delicious.

The food is great.. If you're coming here for coffee though, expect to wait far too long. Atmosphere isn't the greatest either: Busy and uncomfortable. The chefs and bakers are extremely friendly, but the frontline staff never seem to be interested in being there.

I really want to like this place because it seems like it should be great, but each time I've eaten here has been disappointing. On the plus side: everyone is really friendly, it's nice and bright, and I do love the wooden spoons that they give you when you order to identify you when bringing you your food. That's definitely... More

I am on a restricted diet and they were very accommodating with my requests so I very much appreciated that. I had the beef brisket which was the 'special of the day'. The food was good - I requested it be served without a bun. Not outstanding but good. Served with a slice of tomato / onion with swiss cheese... More

Went for lunch , food was great but if you want to talk with the people you are with ... you have to yell . It's very loud like a cafeteria. Staff are fun and hard working :)

We stopped by for an afternoon snack and was pleasantly surprised by the selection of goodies. The pumpkin spice cupcake was delicious and sooo worth the splurge on calories.

Food was quite delicious. I had an Asian Noodle dish, while my wife had a chicken salad. Staff was very friendly too. A little on the pricey side but we will go back. The place has quite an echo so can get quite loud when it's busy.

They open early at 7AM. Having dropped my wife off at the hospital for a Dialysis treatment at 6:45am I was looking for a great local place, and here it was just a few blocks away. Nice atmosphere, good... coffee, and the skillet was tasty. Definitely a place to check out if you are in the area.

Truly amazing service. They go the extra mile for dietary needs. Wish more restaurants would care as much. Not only gluten free and vegetarian options but will work with you to answer all concerns.
