I went there twice the past few months - once because another place I was at had too long lines. Food is quite good, decent prices. Convenient location for drivers and users of public transportation. You can choose from a breakfast and a lunch menu...More

Had the chicken and waffles. Add a bit of hot sauce and it was amazing. The Bloody Mary is also house made and very tasty. The black bean cakes have a great texture and flavour

Good atmosphere if it's busy but otherwise an average cafe. Food is good, especially the Fried Chicken & Waffles.

Enjoyed a delicious fig and goat cheese salad. Also had a great shrimp sandwich. The chocolate layer cake, Pots de la Creme, Portuguese Flan and Salted Caramel Ice Cream were all delicious!

Alas, we didn't try their famous waffles in our two visits. But enjoyed the pot of coffee at our table, excellent poached eggs in a.m. and burgers, Caesar salad and clam linguine in the evening. Good and timely service. Very pleasant ambiance.

When ever I am in Portland, I visit the cafe. LOVE the food, healthy portion sizes and a great selection. Exceptional service. It's a small cafe so just be patient - it's worth the wait!

too rich too fried too clumsy lunchtime fare, though the salad was dressed well, small protein portions and spendy lunchtime pricing equalled an average at best experience on the occasion. Bread choice was ignored in favour of a sugary bun for the iny salmon 'burger',...More
