A great spot for a warm, slightly breezy, Sunday brunch outside. Though busy, seating seemed to be plentiful, though (friendly) service came in spurts. We shared orders of a waffle (perfectly cooked) and kielbasa with pierogis (3), and could happily have had more of both. Highly recommend upgrading to tater tots with your sandwiches and ordering Bloody Mary's, if you enjoy them.

Would have liked to see fewer disposable items used: some diners' plastic silverware and straws were taken with a clearing of the table, so more were used, and the table was littered with ~3 plastic cups per diner (water and drinks). The bowls the food was served in seemed to be biodegradable.

Note: Bring sunscreen if you'll be dining outside--though the tables have umbrellas, depending where the summer sun sits, some diners won't be covered (came away with a 1-armed sunburn!).

Great food and staff. Very helpful and if a mistake is made they make every effort to fix quickly. They are also very good with any food sensitivities your allergies with making adjustments to their food items. Overall a great place to get brunch, lunch, dinner or just snacks and a few drinks.

Great little neighborhood spot with outside dining. Food was very good but be careful if you are counting calories. SInce I am watching my diet, my solution was the the crispy salmon which was done perfectly. Service was very good with nice, attentive servers and it was all served at just the right pace. We dined outdoors so plastic cultery, etc but that makes sense. We thought it was an excellent value and expect to be back on a regular basis.

Breakfast was one of the best ever. Ever. This was our first time at Hawthorne's. We ate outside. At 10:15am on a Thursday the inside was a bit crowded and while yes, it's a bar restaurant, I wanted a quieter vibe.

There were plenty of umbrella tables outside and our server was delightful

We ordered the french toast made with bread pudding and served with fruit. And the eggs benedict made with a crab cake.

Both were outstanding! We will be back

The food order took a really long time to arrive. When it did, it was over cooked and room temperature. It's clear that they are having staffing issues as it was all hands on deck, and we still waited forever. There is also a bike lane that runs in between the entrance and the outside seating. Really dangerous.

Great food and drinks. Fun place to go. Good vibe. I will definitely return to try other foods on the item. My friend and I split some items because we couldn't decide. It is a must try place.

This place was great! From the jump the service was great-not the kind of place where the waiter/waitress rushes through the specials. Attentive but not annoying, he checked on us at the perfect times. The ambiance is what put things over the top and the food was great! We got the potato mess, a breakfast sandwich, and the burger. Definitely would go back again. The paloma was great, I only needed one

Everyone was lovely! The food was delicious and an over the top large quantity, but I saved half and had it for lunch the next day, which made me feel that I got a great value. It was a little loud outside, but not too bad. Had we selected the booths, instead of the street patio it may have been a little less loud.

Everything was excellent! We ordered breakfast sandwiches and the breakfast special. It was all outstanding! They even brought a bowl of water for our puppy. Their coffee was great, and they offer non-dairy options, which was awesome for our group.

The food was great and the drinks were very good. Especially surprised and pleased by the non-beer menu for a beer cafe. The service staff was doing well for what seems like short-staffing. It was over 90 degrees outside and we kept having to ask for water - had to ask for a carafe to keep hydrated. Other than that everything was great

It’s time to bring out the dishes and glasses. I better napkin might help to substantiate the prices as well. Serving the taster tots in a recycle to go box is cheesy, in my opinion. It’s time to stop using covid to play it cheap and get back in the game.

Love this place but putting tables on the asphalt in 90+ temps in mid afternoon is not a good idea. I thought I was gonna pass our/puke from the heat.

Great neighborhood staple. Unfortunately we went for brunch and ended up outside in their semi permanent tables under cover. The roof was clear plastic which turned the sun into a laser that fried us.

This is a great spot for outdoor dining in Bella vista! The hostess (Emily) was very friendly and accommodating and our server (Sam) was also very attentive and friendly! I had the mahi mahi tacos and my husband had the chicken salad croissant. Both were perfect and delicious! Our cocktails hit the mark also. We liked it so much we came back the next day for more.

I like going to Hawthornes for breakfast. Our dinner was not so good. The chicken fingers are heavily breaded and not tasty and the chips were over cooked. The tater tot appetizer was the best thing.

My son’s round waffle came in a small rectangular cardboard box. Would be nice if Hawthorne’s would switch from plastic and cardboard back to washable plates, cutlery, glasses.
