Been here about 3 times now and I love it. Great ambiance and good food! Gets busy at times but it's worth it. Hard to resist desserts since they stare at you from behind the glass.

Turkey Club (5 stars): The cilantro mayo is really good. Loved the sourdough.

Spicy Chicken (4 stars): Lots of cheese, almost like a grilled cheese with chicken. Couldn't taste the other ingredients much but still good.

Chocolate Chip Cookie (3.5 stars)

Avocado and Burrata Toast (4 stars)

ATMOSPHERE (5 stars)
Love the vibe of this place. Great open layout and love that there is nice seating outside! You order at the counter and they give you a number to take to your table.

Street parking or they have valet around the corner (which I thought was crazy for a cafe type place but it does get pretty busy at peak times so at least that's an option). Full Review

Arrived on a Saturday Morning at 10am for breakfast, place was crowded, ordered at the counter. Menu is detailed, ingredients fresh. Served order within 20 minutes. Was kind of concerned about the butting boards the food was served on, kind of outdated and warn down. Don't wanna think if they were contaminated or whether they can be totally washed down.

Street parking was available on Saturday and didn't need to pay for parking as usual, either at the structure or valet.

Service was kind, friendly, and quick. Would come back and would order the the brioche sandwich.

Hope they were open on Sundays for breakfast as well, but seems like breakfast all day Saturdays will have to do for now. Full Review

Went Saturday afternoon for brunch with a friend. We ordered the avocado burrata toast and the chicken caprese. Both of them were great. Their fresh lemonade was also amazing. Great environment and setting. Love the staff everyone is very nice. Full Review
