We were looking for something not to heavy, but halfway decent. This restaurant hit the spot. Nice offerings of soups, salads and open face sandwiches. Tables very close together with some community tables.

Our local cafe. Lacks soul as it’s a chain. But is bright and plenty of tables. The avocado toast and green smoothie are our go to’s.

Very surprised when I couldn't find beer on the menu. I wrongly assumed this chain has the same selections everywhere. This location is a bit schmutzig, the three-bean chili had some odd flavors and the bread with it was a bit stale. I was tempted...More

Projectile vomiting my lunch throughout the night. A dirty, unsanitary place with an unprofessional, negligent staff.

This was a great find. My partner is allergic to dairy products. This place had loads of choices to satisfy both of us. The staff were lovely and the atmosphere was buzzy and relaxed. We ate breakfast here every day of the holiday!

Unsurpassed in all its preparations, tasty dishes, fresh ingredients, very original and healthy food. A very comfortable place, well decorated, cozy. My favorite place every time I go back to New York.
