Food is tasty, no doubt, but I agree with the previous review about portion size. I would like to see a little more for the price. The pancakes were tasty. The omelette my friend had looked like a great choice. Would go back again.

I like this place A LOT, but I always leave hungry and feeling like I spent a little too much for a little too little. The food and service make up for it somewhat, but personally, I like BIG breakfasts... so that's my two-cents.

Farm to table stuff. Tasty. Great service. A little pricy for what you get but based on the fact that its real fresh, no biggie. Lots of choices. We ate breakfast and would go back for sure.

They seem to focus on healthy options and natural foods, which is fine. But, the key difference is that they find a way to make it all taste awesome.
