Went for brunch. Very pleasant staff. The breads are homemade. My wife had their breakfast sandwich which came with locally sourced sausage and egg with cheese. I had grilled cheese sandwich which was made with goat cheese, arugala, and tomato. Both were excellent and served with hash browns which was a mixture of fried sweet peppers, sweet and white potatos. Coffee was good and the waitress was always generous with the refills.
The restaurant also donates back to the community in creating training and employment opportunities...a good reason to support their establishment.

The food was quite good but suffered from stinginess. My brisket sandwich was mostly bread and slaw, with a little meat. A more generous portion of the fine brisket would have been welcome (and justified, considering the price). My wife ordered soup and salad, and got what looked like half portions of each, but it seemed we were charged full price for both. I generally find restaurant portions too large, but here they were clearly too small.

We had the specials: grilled cheese and breakfast on a bun and I think it's safe to say they were two of the best breakfasts we've had! The hash browns are more like roasted vegetables than conventional fried potatoes but they were so so so good. Great atmosphere, friendly service, and our coffee was always topped up. We brought our 11-month-old and it was family friendly. Highly recommended. Afterwards, take a stroll around and see all the Jellybean Row houses, or stop into the Basilica Museum.

Went to this restaurant 3 times in the past two weeks. Each time the food was amazing- A+ for service, presentation and taste!
only open for lunch Monday to Friday although there is a breakfast entree on the menu. Open for Brunch on Sat.. they have the best eggs benedict my partner has ever tasted and thats his go to for brunch wherever we go! the lunch menu is varied with something for everyone. Save room for dessert. the choice is irresistible and each one is decadent. Try the orange sorbet with carmel sauce and a ginger cookie. Heavenly!

Had a lovely lunch with friends. Food was nice and fresh and very tasty. I would recommend calling for reservations as it is not a large restaurant and it is always busy.
