Hass Avocado Toast
tomatoes, scallion mascarpone, poached eggs, house country bread
Celebrated a birthday! Everything from the food to our waiter and everything in between was perfect!
Nice service and good food
Lindsey was amazing server. Great personality, high energy, very attentive. Thank you
Ambiance is great. Food is below average, I had turkey sandwich, which was very bland, just bread and deli meat. Nothing special. Honestly Waste!!!!! Over priced.
Truffle fries were excellent.
Plate was dirty, overall the place seems to need a bit of a rehab. Chairs have worn out leather !
Service was great!
This is a great place for Sunday brunch. Love the sunny, inviting space. Service is excellent. Food is okay. We had avocado toast (quite good), the breakfast tostado (very good) and the crispy chicken sandwich (kind of dry and ordinary.). We will always return because it just feels good to be there.
We had a lovely brunch for my best friends birthday. They brought her a cookie with ice cream without us having to ask. Service was great and so was the food
Delicious, somewhat unique food options, large menu and a great ambience!
I will be back! We loved our server, they had great recommendations and the atmosphere was amazing.
Food & drinks were great! Service was slow, but would definitely go back.
Love the vibe in here. Cookies at the front are amazing- have to grab one to take home.
Amazing food and drinks! Came for a girls brunch and it did not disappoint! It’s pretty crowded so reservations will be needed. Kind of took a while to get our table even with a reservation.
It was a great atmosphere and friendly staff.
Absolutely amazing in every way! Service, food, all of it was above and beyond. Thank you so much Dan and team!
The service is great. The pasta is
amazing.I just had a really great time and the vibe was amazing. I definitely will bring my friends around
Very cutely decorated restaurant with a wide variety selection of food and drink on the menu
Noise level is loud but still great ambiance and food!
Food was great. Bad service.
Very accommodating to children — thank you!!
Cold and drafty. Food came to table room temperature.
The food is as good as ever..the service is a little slow now I assume because there weren’t enough servers on. I’m surprised that they are still adding a 3% surcharge on to the bill for Covid when most other dining establishments have stopped. Especially when they are a little expensive to begin with.
Usually love the food at SH but my burger was very undercooked today.
Amazing food & service
We had to wait 35 minutes after our reservation time, which obviously was a bummer. We were about to leave but then were finally able to sit down. The food was delicious once we sat down.
Food was delicious and it felt like we were sitting on a patio in January!
I had Sunday brunch with my sister and the place was packed. We were sat in a nice big booth in the vitamin d room which was so great! Our waitress was attentive, she had a busy day but she still managed to get us what we needed quickly. The food was super yummy, I got the fall harvest special which I really enjoyed :)
Overall great experience!
My 3rd time visiting Summer House and it NEVER disappoints. Great food, consistent flavors (always have to get the infamous English muffin) and outstanding service (Thank you, Danny). And the baker graciously shared a cookie with us as we admired them when she passed….super kind.
Great atmosphere and wonderful brunch. Will have to try their dinner menu sometime, but will certainly be back.
5 stars every time we go. Food and service are always great - get the vegan snickerdoodle and thank me later!
That avocado toast was the best ever. The service was also great.
