“Fresh, fast and high-quality”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 March 2014

The fruit is really sparkling here, and the oatmeal is great too. I get my tea elsewhere, a lame selection. But the food is delicious and turn-over is high so it's being replenished frequently.

“Quick inexpensive breakfast platter”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 December 2013 via mobile

Went here searching for something for breakfast and ended up getting a breakfast platter that included 2 eggs, home fries/your choice of meat and whole wheat toast (which was a peasant deviation from your standard white bread) for only $3.95. They have a wide variety and everything is cooked to order...now that's awesome. Also, the upstairs area is for eating and is well lit and comfy. If you are in the area you should check them out!

“Great fast slow food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 December 2013

When prowling the city, sometimes you just need something quick and easy so you can get back to it. But you don't want a burger. This place has an amazing selection of pre-made and ready to order healthy selections- sandwiches, wraps, salads, soups, et cetera. Grab it to go or trot up to the second level seating area. High quality, efficient service, great selection. Check it out.
