Great place for a quick healthy bite. Nice community cafe seated in Madison's Northeast. Pros: Accommodating, friendly with numerous gluten free and vegetarian. Quite efficient even during peak times. Cons: Price point is a bit high, but portions are comfort size. :)

I arrived about an hour before Friday night closing, and the cold night made the brisket dinner look like a great idea. The brisket was tasty and tender, with the rich caramelized flavor you want. It could have been a little hotter, but I gobbled...More
