    Went for brunch and had a super positive experience! Food was delicious! Order was for 2 people to share: the Cuban bread (incredible! Homemade!) with 2 fried eggs, pinch burger with avocado and bacon and guava and cream cheese and French toast. I personally am not a fan of guava and cream cheese but it was good (the homemade brioche was deliicous) and satisfied my sweet tooth. I asked for regular syrup instead of the guava syrup. The burger was just WOW! Very very veryyyy good! Order without hesitation! Definitely a good like surprise spot for brunch and look forward to returning!

    I give Pinch Kitchen a Mixed Review. The servers, though very friendly, rush around in a harried way, but are very inattentive. I heard a rave review of Pinch Kitchen on TV. Unfortunately, I give Pinch Kitchen a Mixed review. We started with the grilled Calamari which was terrible. It was tough and rubbery. We didn’t eat it. We also had a side of Brussels Sprouts which were terrific. The burger and fries were also outstanding. The Cuban sandwich was disappointing. The bread was delicious, but the ham was thick and tough. So I’d give the burger, fries and Brussels sprouts five stars. I’d give the Cuban sandwich two stars and the calamari no stars. We went for the key lime pie, but it was off the menu.

    12/10/22. My grandsons and I had a delicious experience. Two of us had burgers and fries and they were the best I have ever had. The other grandson had pasta and he loved it. Definitely will go back. There is plenty of parking, and we felt very comfortable.

    Came to Pinch following good reviews on Tripadvisor and we were not disappointed. Busy buzzing vibe and not in the least bit pretentious. Food was great. Caught the tail end of happy hour which saved a few bob. Had croquettes and gambas to start plus a 8oz burger to share. Well worth a visit

    My family have been patrons of Pinch Kitchen since they opened. We have enjoyed lots of great meals there. My guest had never been to Pinch Kitchen. She said she loves a Cuban Sandwich but often is disappointed. She was NOT disappointed with the Cuban she got at Pinch Kitchen. Julia was our server and took great care of us the entire time we were there. I know my guest will return .... Our family will continue to enjoy our meals at Pinch Kitchen.

    The food was good but what killed it for me was my bloody mary drink had too much heat and then I asked for spicy aioli sauce on the side for my chicken sandwich but they left it in. So not only was my mouth on fire from the heat of the bloody mary but now the sandwich too. And I love bloody mary's and the heat that comes with it but this was just too overwhelming for me. I was told the bartender makes the mix from scratch (which is pretty cool) but the amount of jalapeños is already mixed in so there was no way to get a milder version. I think they should consider this for people like me who enjoy this drink alot. If you've ever had a bloody mary drink from the Yellow Green Farmers Market, a place called Liquid Remedy - the bartender also makes his own mix and it's savory with just the perfect amount of heat. I appreciate theh offered to get me another drink but I decided to stick with the bloody mary (mistake on my part). Overall, I would come back and give it another try (just not the drink or the sandwich lol).
