Looking for a place for brunch near my son's university for his birthday. Stumbled upon this gem after doing an internet search. Wow... Highly recommend the breakfast burrito. I think there was a 1/2 dozen of eggs in there.

We ordered takeaway pastries for the trip home to NYC. Everything in the case looked spectacular, difficult to make a choice. The restaurant is open and airy, a beautiful setting for brunch or lunch.

The food is great, and the atmosphere is lovely with the large amount of natural daylight and plants, but the menu is quite limited. I was there for lunch and while there is plenty of cakes/ pastries, and plenty of salad type dishes, there is...More
