Quite sad. We normally really enjoy eating here....they tout everything as fresh and made from scratch. The scones are indeed good as is the homemade lemon curd served with the scones. However, the eggs Benedict was really a disappointment. Someone needs to tell the cooks...More

Had the mushroom soup and a gluten free wrap version of one of their creative sandwiches. Very pleasantly surprised. Here on business and not expecting the quality. I did come after the rush and parking was still very tight even though the restaurant was empty....More

I love the knead and their many vegetarian options. The veghead sandwich is amazing and even meat lovers will enjoy it. I also love the curry and the falafel wrap. Their soups are fresh and delicious. They always have a vegetarian soup that is dairy...More

You'd never imagine the food would be so good in this funny location. But it's a local gem for breakfast, brunch and lunch. Best espresso coffees, salads, and our breakfast favorite is the huevos rancheros.

The Knead is kind of tucked away, and an oasis inside - very cozy restaurant with fresh baked goods available. We ordered omelets and a seasonal scone - soooo delicious! Busy and not a lot of seating but worth the wait!

Hidden away in a building, this is a great spot for lunch but be prepared to wait a bit if it's busy. The quiche is delicious as are their sandwiches. The Cuban Reuben is a good choice. There are specials as well. Servers are friendly!
