This place lives up to the hype. Yes, we had to wait a bit, but the line moved quickly. The food is incredible. From the eggs to the hash browns, from the cinnamon roll pancakes to the fruit plates, every bite of our meal was...More

There will probably be a line & a wait at this quaint spot near the New Haven Green area, but the food is worth it. The place has character & is located in a beautiful area in New Haven.

This place is a definite gem. The place is small so seating is tight so the earlier you arrive the better. The line starts piling up around 930am. I'd you are doing takeout give them at least 45 minutes to prepare your order. Great items:...More
