I stopped here for breakfast and wanted a hearty meal with vegetables included. I got the breakfast wrap, which has scrambled egg, melted cheese, a slightly spicy salsa and some arugula garnish. Also got bacon in the wrap. I asked for spinach too because I was hankering for some healthy vegetable. The dish was extremely good, even the wrap itself... More

I stayed down the block at the Doubletree and didn't want to spend an arm and a leg for a full breakfast buffet every day, so I just walked down the block to get a delicious and reasonably priced large breakfast sandwich and a cup of coffee each morning. The staff were always friendly, the food was good, and the... More

I've had many a bacon egg and cheese breakfast sandwich, and they are usually fairly predictably very good, but this one was the best I've ever had! It had some kind of special sauce that I am unable to identify, but it added enough of an extra flavor for me to make this comment. The coffee was also excellent. I... More

I've been here several times over the past few years. Ordinarily I don't mind paying $8 for a bowl of tomato soup, but today is smells horrible! If you walk in and smell what I smell - tell them! And leave. The girl at the counter could careless. Sorry City Bistro - but I draw the line at fish market... More

What a cool little place. Beats any Starbucks I've been to. Hip music, great vibe, original art work and the coffee is so good! Had the iced coffee with sugar free vanilla and sugar free chocolate flavorings; it was delicious! Friendly staff too!

We came here twice for breakfast. The first time we were walking over to Denny's and noticed this place. We ordered a cheese danish and apple streusel and were not disappointed. It was the most delicious breakfast and cutest little cafe. We enjoyed it so much that we wanted to return the last day of our trip. We will definitely... More

My husband and I went there twice during our visit. The coffee was great. The menu was good for vegetarians and carnivores. The only issue we had was - they ran out of cream cheese. Which is really odd since they serve bagels.

We ended up going to this place for breakfast because Denny's was backed up with several people waiting. We ordered coffee and biscuits and gravy with scrambled eggs. The food and coffee were both good. There were several paintings and prints on the walls for sale - super expensive.

An experience rather than just a meal, an occasion for some food for thought & being more than just a flash in the pan is what we strive toward every day.
