Great brunch today! We had eggs benedict with crab and delicious roasted potatoes. The service was friendly and helpful. I will definitely go again and recommend for brunch!

I can't believe this is the first time I've ever been! Cute multipurpose place, great for brunch, uncrowded, laid back, friendly, but then after five it'll be a great place to come back for beer, cider, wine, and cocktails (the beverage list was expansive!)! I'll be back soon. Food was good, service was great!

Great food, great service, great beer, great all around vibes. I went for brunch but will going back for happy hour later this week! Megan was our waitress and she was extremely attentive and sweet throughout our entire experience! This is more than a neighborhood gem, I would recommend this to anyone in the Philadelphia area!!!

Appeared to be a very short staffed night and that led to some service issues. When we did get our food it was good. Lack of communication during our wait was disappointing. They knew there was something going on, come and talk with us.

We went for an early dinner before a show. The staff and kitchen were very accommodating so we could get out on time. The food was delicious and everything was made just how we liked it. We will definitely go back there.

Good place for brunch . Pancakes delicious. Very crowded and noisy on a Sunday. If noise and crowds bother you, you won’t like it on the weekend

This is one of my favorite spots to visit but the last time I was there i was sadly disappointed. The food wasn't up to par. Me and my bf get the same thing everytime, chicken and waffles for him and French toast with a side of bacon for me. this last time we visited everything was off. The chicken was cold, the French toast had an off putting taste to it and i asked for the bacon to be crispy but it came back kinda soft which was no big deal. I asked them to fry it a lil more with no problem. We honestly were just surprised with the poor quality cuz its never like that even on its busiest days. Maybe it was just a bad day but it left us disappointed so we probably won't visit for a while (we already dont visit that frequently) but we'll be back eventually.

Excellent shrimp & chorizo with creamy Brussel sprout risotto. When we got there at 6, the restaurant was empty but a few families gradually came in. By 8pm, there was a loud crowd of runners drinking at the bar.

The waiter was unfriendly and abrupt. He also brought my daughter the wrong order and insisted that was what she ordered. Then while we were still eating dinner, he brought our check and didn’t even ask if we wanted desert or coffee. He made us feel unwelcome and as of outlet business was unwanted.

Great place for brunch. Service was excellent, and finding a brunch spot that takes reservations is a nice touch in this neighborhood where that is hard to find! Gets very loud inside however so take that into account if you are with people who are hard of hearing. Big portion sizes, we took a lot home.

Food was good, but service was spotty. Additionally, there were only two fish tacos, it was presented as an entree but more realistically, it should be offered as an app.

7 adults had a table by the fireplace side of the restaurant . Service was efficient and attentive, but not overbearing. I drank a healing hands ipa and had a delicious salad. I ate the rib meat entree and my husband had the salmon, both delicious. Everyone enjoyed the meal and evening.

Went for Saturday brunch - plenty of reservations available, but when we got to the restaurant there were people waiting for tables everywhere. Staff appeared to be running around each doing their own thing. Many people around us complained of waiting for tables while the hostesses weren’t communicating with one another. Waiter seemed to have no idea what he was doing. Took over 20 min just to have the chance to ask for a bill. He then managed to take another 15 to bring it back to us.

Group of six. Seemed kinda slow on a Saturday but due to that, service was fast and attentive.
Everyone left happy. Prices were very fair. I did not enjoy the crab cake but it was cooked fine and taste is subjective. Fried cauliflower was good and portion was large enough to share.


Insanely great beer list!! Go for that alone
