We have eaten there twice. Both times the food and service were very good! Our group ordered shrimp + grits, crab cakes, a burger, chicken pizza, and a tomato pizza. Everyone enjoyed the meal and the atmosphere. We will be back.

Went for breakfast prior to Mass at the Shrine across the street. Our server barely checked on us and we were ready to order and she basically refused to take it. Had to ask multiple staff to assist. No excuse for such bad service- was not busy and few tables aside form one large party. And while I appreciate the app use to place orders from servers feels like your kids playing on their phones when talking to them.
Meal was delicious but difficult to go back when the service was so poor.

We went for Brunch on a Friday at about 10:00 AM and had a very good meal. The eggs benedict were excellent, but my husband wasn't as happy with his standard breakfast. Mimosas were very good. Service was a little slow at a time when the restaurant was not very busy.

My friends and I had a nice Saturday lunch while visiting Catholic University. The food was good, reasonably priced, and the service was just fine on a busy day. We would recommend it if you're in the area.

We were visiting from out of town and I asked a simple question about what all the signs meant around their establishment. When asking for clarification, I was met with intellectual bullying and overt repression by both the staff and comrades.. If you just want a simple meal with your family go someplace else. This is a front for political activism, not a real restaurant.
