Had a group of three for brunch. Food ok, not great. I had pancakes that we fluffy and good, but my wifes "scamble" seemed to be mainly potatoes and not lots of flavor. When she wanted bacon on the side it came crumbled - I guess it's what they use for the scramble. Son's chicken and waffles was ok. Service was great. Decent food - not superb - but filling and nice folks. From our view, just don't go if you are expecting to be wowed by the food.

Really decent food and service. Fun and easy ambiance inside so you can hear each other talk-and great people watching since it’s right on 11th street.

Food was delicious. Server was great—attentive and patient with great recommendations. First time here. Had the potato mess, the mushroom grilled cheese, the burger, and the on the border or south of the border or something Mexican. Delicious. The Brussels sprouts were a standout. And the salted chocolate brownie was great!

We came for brunch for my friend's bachelorette weekend, and it was great! The heated outdoor seating was a great pandemic perk and the food was phenomenal. Definitely somewhere I will add to my future trips in to the city.

I'm a regular and get takeout at least once a week. My son requested to eat outside. He is 5, and Hawthornes is his favorite restaurant. The outdoor seating on Fitzwater St is heated and very comfortable. The food and service was excellent as always. It is a warm and friendly atmosphere.

This was so bad from start to finish. The service was slow and not attentive. The server seemed disinterested and it came off as rude. Waited way too long for our bill. When we asked for the check, she put her hand out for us to give us our card but hadn’t given us the bill yet? Unprofessional and rude. The burger was overcooked, I asked for medium rare and it was well done. The fried chicken sandwich had a grayish color and was also over cooked, not juicy, stringy, chewy texture. The only saving grace were the tots and the espresso martinis. So many other solid brunch places in this city, I’ll never come back. 1/10 for me.

The outdoor seating booth we were in was well designed even for cool weather. With temperatures in the mid-50s, we were even a little too warm. The service was very good.

Looking for a place to eat before seeing a matinee. We found Hawthornes. Nice location with on-street parking nearby. We were given the option of indoor or outdoor dining because we saw tables in the sun. Opted for outdoors but we were put in a booth in the shade. No heaters working yet. Chilly.
Server was very pleasant but food took a while to be delivered. Everything looked great and tasted above average. Crispy bacon was my favorite part.
Overall, it was so close to being outstanding but a few flaws made it good to very good.

Solid food. Some confusion on breakfast quesadilla/ regular chicken quesadilla, but it was still really good! Awesome tater tots & cheese sauce! Caesar Salad had a tangy dressing which was also solid. Waitress was our hype guys throughout the experience
