Great service. Very accommodating for our big group
Loved the zucchini chips, cheese app. And dessert.
Definitely worth trying out for brunch. This place has casual and nice vibes. Make a reservation for parties of 5 or more since tables are very limited. The waiters/waitresses were all very nice, polite and attentive. The food was delicious. They had all the doors open for a slight breeze but I can imagine how stuffy it was towards the back of the restaurant and it was a very hot day.
Servers were exceptional! Food was good, but just too much noise.
insanely noisy. and did not love the bench seating. but great food and a fun evening
Yummy food, super nice wait staff, reasonable check $, what more can I say? We had a party of 9, and I think we got lucky reserving this place!
I had the rose water waffle, which was excellent (maybe the best waffle I’ve ever had). Some others in my group had the green shakshuka, which they said was less like shakshuka and more like eggs in salsa. So the food is overall good, but lacking in some places.
It is so, so loud. So loud, in fact, that my party had to yell across the table. The food is okay. The service was pretty good except the servers could not hear us.
Excellent service and delicious food. Just too noisy.
It was “good not great.” Overpriced for the size of the dishes the staff was rushing us (though we took less than an hour total including dessert). The food quality was good though. 3/5
The servers were excellent! Especially with us having a toddler with us they were super kid friendly.
Love the food, the place, the service. Great place to hang out!
Food was ok and the restaurant was nice. The wines were bad. The service did not work for us this time. The foods were mixed up and our experience was not great.
loved it! enjoyed the ambiance and service. the food was delish
Second server we had, the man, was excellent. Quality food.
Reserved a table for a friends birthday dinner. The food was delicious, good quality ingredients, and you could taste the quality and care in their food. The menu wasn't overwhelming, and the staff helped with some of our decision making. Great ambience.
Would recommend more for a bunch place. I think that the place looks prettier in natural light vs the dim lit night ambience.
We love to pop over during the workday for a late lunch!
You can only make a reservation for parties of 6+.
Every brunch option is equally delicious! Service is attentive and make sure your cup of coffee is never half empty!
Gennifer was a pure joy - made our holiday catch up fantastic!
Also, too loud
Welcome! Great addition to the neighborhood.
