amazing food and really nice servers!! the server was so incredibly sweet about a mishap that it barely even made a difference in our meal overall. There’s only a few of them working at a time i’m assuming because of COVID but i saw they all were constantly cleaning tables and wiping down surfaces so they’re making it safe for us!

Can't wait until they open up indoor seating. It isn't the greatest spot for outdoor dining.

The breakfast burger is otherworldly! Also had the challah French toast. Great food! Service could’ve been more attentive but overall food was excellent and it’s BYOB. Can’t beat it. We’ll definitely be back!

Our waiter was very nice but the hostess and other waitress was extremely rude. The food was good, but not good enough to overlook the way my friends and I were spoken to by the hostess and waitress.

They only have outdoor dining and the setup is not the best. The food takes pretty long to come out and the address says point breeze but it’s actually on federal street.

It's so great to have a quality restaurant in the neighborhood. I can recommend the fish tacos and the steak, both are really good. My friend's husband had the burger, which he enjoyed. The staff are really friendly, nice.

We arrived for our brunch reservation and asked to sit on the shady side. There was only one outdoor table in use. We were told that not only did we have to sit on the sunny side with the louder traffic, we had to sit at the only table without an umbrella. It was sweltering. Even when we left there were plenty of other tables open. Is there a bad computer app that does not permit any adjustments to assigned seating, or was it just too much trouble for the hostess to put us in some shade?

The Challah french toast was the best I have ever had - crispy, buttery, moist - everything anyone would ever want. The service was great - Julian was attentive. The prices and portion sizes were great - an affordable, but delicious brunch option.

The only challenge was that the tables that seat 2 people did not have an umbrella so we were baking in the hot sun, but other than that, it was a great experience and I will be back plenty times.

The menu is diverse with several vegetarian options and the food is delicious. One of few BYOBs in Point Breeze, and in my opinion, one of the best in the city. Although they are well-known for brunch, a true hidden gem for dinner!

I've been here several times pre-covid and was always impressed with service and food. This was the first weekend that outdoor dining was reintroduced. The server rarely checked on us and took a long time to come back to take our order, refill our beverages, bring our food, our check, etc. Also, the specific meal I got had been a lot better in prior visits (Clucker); the waffle was a bit burnt, poached eggs were poached hard, and was not enough syrup (dry overall). I will go back due to prior experiences that were excellent.

Food was delicious. We ordered the Huevos rancheros, challah french toast and a side of potatoes and bacon. It came out about 7-10 minutes later, hot and delicious. The coffee was good and a waitress would periodically come by to refill if needed. The OJ is very tasty but you only get a small glass of it. There is an option to get a pitcher, but that’s not much bigger. I would definitely eat there again. I’d suggest making reservations because it filled up quick. Great quality food and fair prices.
