Made a reservation online the night before which simplified things for a busy Sunday morning. Service was efficient. The restaurant had already scored points with me after I ordered coffee for myself by providing a full pot for the table with sugar and cream in...More

Good atmosphere if it's busy but otherwise an average cafe. Food is good, especially the Fried Chicken & Waffles.

Enjoyed a delicious fig and goat cheese salad. Also had a great shrimp sandwich. The chocolate layer cake, Pots de la Creme, Portuguese Flan and Salted Caramel Ice Cream were all delicious!

Alas, we didn't try their famous waffles in our two visits. But enjoyed the pot of coffee at our table, excellent poached eggs in a.m. and burgers, Caesar salad and clam linguine in the evening. Good and timely service. Very pleasant ambiance.

When ever I am in Portland, I visit the cafe. LOVE the food, healthy portion sizes and a great selection. Exceptional service. It's a small cafe so just be patient - it's worth the wait!

Indulge yourself in this "elevated" corner cafe's creatively on-point offerings, laid back service, and well lit location. I'm a proud, self proclaimed Biscuits & Gravy snob who would gladly return for the same serving only a day later, having thoroughly enjoyed the perfectly portioned mound...More

Their homemade bread is terrific - thick, not dry, rich. Love it! Eggs Benedict superb. Had a romantic dinner the night before so we went back. Recommend.

The cafe atmosphere is nice and the eggs benedict were great served with slightly crunch hash browns and excellent mimosas. The night before we had clam linguini which I think could have been tastier with seasonings but we did return the following day so they...More
