    I've been coming to Tryst for about 2 years now and have always had an enjoyable dining experience. The food is local and organic and their menu is diverse and creative. We usually frequent Tryst Cafe for both brunch and dinner. Brunch is usually busy and you can expect a small wait, especially on the weekends. I've had almost everything on their breakfast menu and the repeat offenders include eggs and chorizo and the Hawaiian breakfast. My wife is a big fan of the waffles, both regular and the chocolate bacon selection. Brunch and dinner usually comes out to $30-$40 for two, depending if we ordered any cocktails with our meals. Tryst Cafe is a restaurant that we will continue to frequent in northern Phoenix.

    Group of 5 visiting from Oregon, found on Urbanspoon and yelp. Love that Tryst sources foods locally where available. Server, Rachael, was knowledgable and friendly. We felt bad that she had to make so many more stops with coffee at our table than any of her others, we live on the stuff up here in the Pac NW. The Food: I had the Benedict and while not traditional that is a plus in this case and did not detract.The capicola added a little heat to balance the richness. Paired perfectly with the Cucumber infused bloody mary. Companions had the Pecan crusted french toast and tryst omelet. Both had glowing reviews, the texture of the brioche was decadent and best omelet ever were two of the remarks. Out of room. Go to Tryst, make reservation!

    I was disappointed with my meal. It was a chicken piccata and it was not traditional and was just ok. The best part of the meal was the spring rolls. The service was great but probably won't go back.

    The food was great but over priced! Lunch should be around $10 and come with a beverage! The idea that I can eat gluten free is all over the menu, but they charge you for it! They didn't have any gluten free beer, you think at this place that would be a given! The outside seating felt stark and void. Just a couple candles and different light bulbs and its a winner! My company wanted just a regular beer and they only had exotic ones/or were out. We will give it another try, but for being open 2+ years it could have been better!
