    This was my first visit to The Smith. My husband and I went for breakfast on a Saturday morning. Our server, Aaron, was extremely friendly, personable and attentive. He made superb recommendations and everything was delicious, from the avocado toast to the perfectly crisped bacon and pancakes. Saturday brunch includes a cocktail and Aaron's recommendation for the Rose Spritz was spot-on. Restaurant is clean and spacious and filled up quickly. I was glad I made a reservation.
