We both enjoyed the Egg and Chicken Sausage breakfast sandwiches which were amazing! Also, they made me a mimosa substituted cranberry juice instead of orange which was delightful! So glad to eat there before another shutdown.

I ordered the beef tacos. Large amount of beef but the overall flavor was bland. The sweet potatoes were excellent. The mixed drinks were great and my husband enjoyed the lasagna. If I come back I will try something different.

When I told her I loved the tea that I was drinking she came back with a to go cup of the same tea. I was impressed. The ambience is amazing, and the food is to die for.

Ben was absolutely the best server I've had in quite a while. He was attentive to our every need and want. I must admit that the young lady (sorry, I didn't get her name) also was very helpful, going the extra mile to bring over a heater for the comfort of an elderly woman with me.

Table service was great, cut back/limited menu was disappointing considering some of what was not available are staples of True Foods and have been on the menu since the first one opened in Phoenix at the Biltmore. Hostess was not friendly, very short and snippy with her words, did not make me feel welcome or valued.
