  • This is the place. There is no place quite like this place anywhere near this place. So this must be the place.
  • Order the BLTA - crisp bacon, earthy, crunchy green arugula. A ripe, ruby red tomato and half an avocado, with a fried egg on crunchy sourdough toast. The yolk adds a creamy, velvety richness.
  • Great food. Patience required.
