    Not the brunch vibe I was looking for. More of a bar that serves breakfast vibe. Food was ok, not the standard I expect with brunch.

    This place was builllllllt up. Literally the BLANDEST meal & the drink was so sweet i couldn’t even drink it (wasted $15). The food tasted like nothing with a hint of dirt vegetables. Maybe the other food is good but what i had was AWFUL.

    I've been here about 3 times in the past 2 years during my annual Salem trip and it has consistently stayed amazing! (I actually went 2x in one trip!) The food and drinks were delicious. Service was friendly and great. Loved the atmosphere. Best part is that it's conveniently located and near all the must-visit shops and spots in Salem.
