Good brunch food, average coffee. Wait staff let down the experience. Slow service and we had to remind them of our order. One staff member was more interested in themselves - be a personality but be good at your job as well. Willing to come back but will be expecting better.

The coffee here is great, but I drink out of cups and mugs and glasses. I cannot stand " mason jars" . The baking is great. The chairs are get out in 5 minute jobs purchased by the look from an old school. The noise level is way way too high.

Avocado toast was generous serving of scrumptious, light sourdough, feta, and avocado with tasty cherry tomatoes presented in an artful stack! Great breakfast selection and baked goods. Highly recommend trying this place. Husband loved the coffee! Service was excellent and friendly. Coming back for some baked goods later!

Three of us tried this out for a Saturday brunch; none of us work in the city, & it's only open weekday daytime and Saturdays, closing early afternoon. It's a bit space, it was a mild & not windy day, so the walls/windows were open on 2 sides. It's a little bit deliberate lite industrial chic, but not too overdone.... More

Dined in this place on a recommendation from review sites, but it failed me. I ordered the Avocado Smash with eggs on the side. The eggs were great, but the Avocado had that older taste and not so fresh smell / taste! I eat these everyday and know the taste of a fresh and decent avocado. The bread was very... More
