  • ChefMozThe food is always fresh, tasty, and colorful and the staff is great. I go there at least once a week and have tried basically everything on the menu. The soups are always great, and they do everything near perfectly.

  • ChefMozThe first day, I had the egg dish with the polenta. I was disappointed with the polenta as it was a little too moist and had little flavor.I decided to try it again the next day, but decided on the biscuits with herb gravy, which was absolutely wonderful! I wish I could find a recipe for it so I could make it here at home. They should bottle it and sell it for those of us who live far away.

  • ChefMozThe food was really fresh and very flavorful. Though the wait was long, it was well worth the wait. Everything, right down to the biscuits are homemade. You must try everything on the menu.

    55555 by Alex R


  • Afi JI have dreamt about the brunch here. It's probably my favorite brunch spot ever. You can't go wrong with anything you order. Just be sure to wash it down with a mimosa or a Penny Pickler.

  • Jennifer E.The grilled polenta cakes (polenta & eggs) were yummy, but the black beans that came with it had too much liquid... I ended up needing to eat my breakfast with a spoon.

  • Vashta SWarm granola with mixed fruit was great! Kiwi, pomegranate, bananas and blueberries. Yum! Mac & Cheese a bit peppery but worth taking the leftovers home. 80's pop & rock mix was perfect.

  • Gahlord D.For meatatarians: they make their own sausage and you can get it as a side. Also watch specials board for duck hash, chili colorado, menudo (yes, not the 80s proto boy band) and of course, tortierre.

    55555 by Gahlord D.
