​It’s been a harsh and never ending winter but that sure didn’t stop me from enjoying brunch at Birchwood Café earlier this week. The casual and interactive ambiance turned out to be an excellent pick for catching up with some friends. Though we expected a...More

Loved it. Local, inviting, and delicious. Avocado toast was great and the coffee good. Just a good place to go that isn’t crowded.

Birchwood is a go to place for my friend and I. We try other breakfast places here and there but always end up back here. It’s consistently good and the piri piri sauce is to die for.

Our dinner here recently was fairly uninteresting. You order at the counter, cafeteria style, and they bring the food to your table. Seating is mostly communal, with a few side tables for parties of 2-4. Prices are a bit high for what is offered. The...More
