I love having brunch here -the line can be long but worth the wait. I love eating outside when the weather is nice. The quiche is fabulous!! There is always a display of tempting sweets too! It's order at the counter and serve your own water and sit and wait at a table for your food to arrive. Well worth... More

I live in the neighborhood and have never stopped in, so decided to with some friends. When you go in, you order at a counter and someone brings the food to you. The food took quite some time for all of us. When mine came out, they had given me a completely different dish. I told the girl it wasn't... More

Menu huge. Special board huge. Line huge due to over complicated menu. Wait for food huge. I only go for coffee to meet a friend who loves the oatmeal. Food as tortured as a Dick Cheney water board victim. I may never go back.They opened a sister restaurant next door called E.D. It's just as unfulfilling.

Extensive vegetarian and meat options. Great coffee. Go when you are not rushed; food can take awhile to come out.

The menus are innovative and interesting, making it very difficult to select something :) The breakfasts were delicious. The portions are extremely generous. Can't wait to return and try some of their other creative dishes!

I really enjoy a good salad. I ordered the V8 salad and it was full of veggies, not skimpy. The salad is so big it's big enough for two people for sure. This place is not just for vegetarians. It offers a variety of salads and sandwiches. It's more or less a breakfast and lunch place and closes at three.... More

This is not just eggs and sandwiches. This is gourmet style food. Even a Frenchman visiting Indy would think he was eating in France and yet you could qualify what they serve as modern DELICIOUS American food. Marc and Deidra, the owners, don't just cook, they craft food for their guests pleasure. Before I forget I am not related to... More

It was a rainy day as we ran in from the weather. We had a short wait but it was well worth it. You place your order at the counter. They give you a number for your table. Due to the crowd, we were able to find a nice table in another room. It was funky and fun. We were... More

Long lines lead to one super slow guy answering phones, cutting pies, talking with friends and not taking orders as though it is most important. Nearly zero people at tables with food. This place has NO clue about how to care for people that decide to come to this location and spend money. NOT TO MENTION, parking is horrid. Food... More

Okay, I know this is in SOBRO, so I guess a certain amount of funkiness is expected. Can you still say funky? The decor and furniture was what I would call 'Early Chip and Dent.' The staff was friendly and accommodating. We sat at a communal table which allowed us to look over the entire place and to stare at... More
