  • ejs3 reviewVery affordable and a good hangout for college kids. Just walk in, take a menu, and seat yourself. You can get anything as simple as a bowl of oatmeal, to the enormous Almond Joy pancakes or `the peasant` which is mix of tofu and other veggie delights. Just go for a laugh. The atmosphere is amusing enough.

  • gduncan reviewGreat place for the `I want something different` palate. Don't come here if you are only looking for something that you will find at any other restaurant in town. The surroudings provide great conversation and are very clean. The food is different, tasty and very affordable. Best for brunch or lunch.

    33333 by Emily H.


  • Michelle B.Fantastic food. Our waitress was horrible though.

    33333 by Michelle B.


  • Stephanie T.Ignore the hipster vibe and health violations (unless that's your thing), and enjoy some good cayenne cheddar bread with any dish. It literally goes with any dish.

    33333 by Stephanie T.


  • Cyndi N.Worst food ever. French fries were the only good thing. If you want a tortilla full of barbecue sauce & nothing else....this is the place to go. The service was along the same lines.

    33333 by Cyndi N.

    55555 by Christine


  • Brett E.Meat lovers should get the Sklarmegeddon

    55555 by Brett E.


  • Alyssa D.I'm not sure what all the fuss is about except for the kitschy and sort of hipster feel. The breakfast is ok but I think their reputation is built on being quirky. Service was less than stellar. Meh.

    33333 by Alyssa D.
