You walk in, pick out a menu, make your choice, and tell the cashier. Then you pay. Then you get your ordered beverages and find a table. The place is clean and art deco diner chic. Spartan. The food arrives and it is not over portioned. But it is hot and good. You finish it all. No leftovers. And you... More

This is an indoor and outdoor great casual restaurant. Sunday brunch was perfect after a short wait. Enjoy the Austin vibe.

With friendly but not so attentive staff. Breakfast was good but expensive. It was interesting but also a bit distracting to see that staff was polishing legs of chairs and tables.

Several of us ate brunch here last weekend at the recommendation of my hostess in Austin and were pleasantly surprised. You order at the counter and they bring your food to your table. They continue to check to see if you need a drink refill despite it being self service. The food was good and fresh: we got breakfast wraps... More

A cool exterior, matched on the inside. For breakfast, the wraps are terrific; simple and good. Staff friendly, happy to have you there. Drink bar is a nice touch, help yourself without feeling unhelpful Will be back often

This was an excellent choice. It was fast service and really good food. Cafe style. It is not full service (you refill your water, order at counter, etc) but it's more than adequate.

We had the grilled salmon salad with avocado and dill dressing. It was excellent. And our son loved the grilled cheese on whole wheat children's meal.

Love the breakfast burritos…you can choose your ingredients…french press best in town with espresso beans on the side. Veggie burgers homemade and the turkey meatloaf with whipped sweet potatoes amazing. Love to go here alone or with family...
