5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 August 2014 via mobile

Our party of 5 ordered banana pancakes, eggs benedict, chorizo and eggs, etc. It was all delicious.
PS: Love how they dont let people grab seats until they have ordered and have a number...

Creative menu, helpful staff, gluten free options that taste good! This was one of the best breakfasts I've ever had! Coconut syrup....mmmmm! Yes, the line is long but they have a system that works and its worth the wait

“So Disappointed”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 August 2014

High traffic, dirty place. We had eggs benedict with turkey and bacon (8,95), chocolate pancakes (4.75) side of bacon (4 slices 3.75), buttermilk, side of sausage (3.75 4 links) 1 orange juice 2.25 and 1 soda 1.75. bacon was cooked earlier in the day, so dry and cold. My home fries were overcooked, dry and warm and the peel was still on, so it was hard. Total bill 35$ bacon and turkey was the thinest slice one could get. Squished seating inside or patio, street side with cars gassing the air and hot. This is not the place if you want a special breakfast experience, if you want fast and willing to compromise, then i guess it's ok. How this place is #1 is beyond me.
