Nice, expensive diner vibe, with a good mix of age groups and ethnicities. Went for brunch on a Saturday morning with husband as a quick and easy Mommy/Daddy date. Definitely one of the pricier brunches, don't expect a bottomless option. It was surprisingly busy, so I was glad we had a reservation. We sat in a corner next to another older couple (wish we had a little more privacy). Noticed music playing at a low volume, like low enough where you could actually enjoy conversation. We had classic and mango passion bellinis while we waited, they were as good enough for a 2nd round. I ordered the benedict of the week - which had crab meat and avocado. With potatoes and salad on the side, it was overall delicious and filling. However, I didn't care much for the crab meat and personally the avocado wasn't ripe enough (guess I should've had it with salmon or canadian bacon). Next time I think I'll try the lobster roll or steak and eggs. Hubby had chicken and waffles, no complaints there, it was also delicious! We also ordered sides of bacon and sweet potato hash brown. Bacon was really yummy, and perfectly thick and crispy! Hash was not so yummy, should've sent it back. We were looking for the sweetness of a sweet potato or saltiness of classic hash and got neither. Tasted very bland with a tiny jolt of onion from the chives. Service was polite, had good recommendations, and timely. We didn't feel rushed, but also didn't feel abandoned by our waiter. Ended our meals with an espresso for him, and a cappuccino for me, which was very lovely, and exactly what we needed to snap back into parent mode! Deducted a star for the hash brown, and also the seating because the volume and close proximity of the other tables was a little distracting, and makes you feel like your're eves dropping or like the table next to you is.

Great food, convenient to my work, with enough vegetarian dishes on the menu to keep my wife happy. Staff was very courteous and attentive. There was some kind of work party ramping up at the bar just a couple tables away and that was distracting. They say us in a table in a corner by a pillar, which was a little uncomfortable for me but not too bad, and I kind of liked it because it blocked the noise from the bar.

This is my top go-to place during lunch time to meet with friends. It is a place that is "conversation friendly" and is comfortable. I also love that they have vegan options and the food here is well-made and delicious.

Our reservation was at 730am, and there was a lack of service. It seemed staff came onboard around 8a, and then service was much better. Food was very good.

Best brunch maybe ever! Try the chicken and waffles, cinnamon roll pancakes, eggs benedict of the week (mine was lobster and avocado), or avocado toast. Or frankly almost anything else. The yogurt fruit parfait was the best I have ever had. I asked them where they buy their yogurt...alas...it's house made. YUM.

The weekend brunch here is a Bucket List item!

My friends surprised me for my 40th. I had been there before and loved the drinks and the food. They are super accommodating and nice and the food is amazing. The drinks are strong and I love it. They aren’t skimpy with the alcohol. I had a great time and would definitely go back.

Wait staff was pretty rude - we made a reservation online that morning (4 hours earlier), although they denied we had a reservation they managed to seat pretty fast. Our waitress was really nice and attentive and the food was pretty good for the price. The restaurant was nice although it would have been nicer to be seated at the windows instead of in the back.

Located right across the street from my hotel , the IHG Barclay , this makes a convenient restaurant for breakfast . I always order the avocado toast, and it's amazing . The atmosphere is cozy and the service is top notch . I'm sure it would be ideal for lunch and dinner as well , as I have yet to try it then .
