    A perfect choice, as always, for our anniversary dinner. Nate never fails to impress me as a server — knowledgeable and attentive but easy-going with a great, understated sense of humor. The food was impeccable, from the creamy mushroom soup (made perfect with bits of pancetta) to the melt-in-your-mouth short rib, topped off with just the right amount of mocha chocolate sorbet. Elly’s cocktails need no explanation — so, so good (and pretty)!

    Flea Street never disappoints! From the cocktails by Eloy, to the appetizers of steak tartare and Caesar salad, main of scallops, and desert of donuts, the food from Bryan was impeccable. The service is outstanding and the staff always has a smile! Thanks Jesse for keeping the fires burning!

    Love Flea Street Cafe. I wish they would bring back the vegetarian tripple dish that they used to always have on the menu. It's so nice that Jesse still comes around and thanks all the patrons. I will always come back here for the local food and the elegant but understated vibe.
    Flea StreetResponded on March 8, 2024
    Hello Mitchell, Thank you for your kind words about Flea Street! You missed it by a night...The Veggie Tasting is back. We took it off the menu for a few weeks around Valentine's Day. But it is on the menu and for those who love it....back forever. Chef Bryan changes it with the seasons and it is one of our most popular menu items! Hope to see you soon.

    Flea St is our go-to for a lovely, beautifully presented meal when we're celebrating...anything. Our valentine's meal was especially lovely, and we didn't get any weirdness that we had our teen with us -- in fact, there were other families with a kid or two celebrating Valentine's day together (some with young kids in fact). The staff is welcoming, the space is gentle and calming. Can't wait to come back.

    The mushroom Wellington was melt-in-your mouth delicious. Even the bread and butter is superb here. Quantities are smaller than you often find, but the food is so delicious and healthy that you actually feel good when you leave. Although on Valentine's Day, the donuts for dessert were crazy good, so that wasn't so healthy was it?

    This was such a special treat. The food was amazingly prepared. We had the crab cake and the waiter recommended the Brussels sprouts and paired beautifully together. The cauliflower soup has a unique flavor and was so good. For the main course my has band had the pasta with a whole crab and we had fish too. It was wonderful. We were there for three hours and never felt rushed. It was delightful.
