Foursquare Tips

  • get the penny egg sandwich ... real bacon and sausage or vegetarian bacon and sausage ... it swings both ways.
  • I love this brunch place! I highly recommend the "Sam I Am" with egg whites.
  • Walk in, notice all patrons are women, order hummus plate, sangria, and the "When Veggie met Sally" salad
  • When Veggie Met Sally Salad - one of my favorite salads in the whole wide world!
  • Looking for a cheap & delectable brunch deal? For $14.50 prix-fixe, choose from 9 entrees w/ drink included. Try the Nutella French Toast.
  • While waiting in line, grab a complimentary coffee near the door. then, if you're in for brunch, order the Salmon Wrapped Poached Eggs and the Bloody Mary. Sooooo good!
  • A cute, cozy neighborhood restaurant with some choice breakfast and brunch but a hit or miss dinner menu.
  • Chicken meatballs are unreal!
  • Sit at the somewhat large table for two by the front window. Open the drawers, you won't regret.
  • try 'when veggie met sally'
  • Stick it out through the wait. People bail out of the wait and this place turns tables pretty fast. Our 1.5 hour wait time turned out to only be 20 minutes.
  • Chicken Pot Pie: "Forget the brunch rush at this friendly neighborhood spot and go straight for the main attraction: a creamy, dreamy, chicken pot pie of your very own."
  • Go with a friend during lunch. Get the three cheese grilled cheese and a BBLT. Now split. Amazing right? Best of both worlds and the bread they use is delicious. Fries are forgettable though...
  • Get your booty there by 10 am, otherwise you have an hour+ wait. :(
  • Penny egg sandwich for brunch just hits the spot. It's rough waiting sometimes, but it's definitely worth it.
  • Bonus points for the home-y touch of coffee in mismatched mugs while you wait!
  • $3?!!!!! For half a glass of milk?!!!!!!!
  • Don't get the raspberry coffee cake- tastes like plain bread with almonds. Also the Benedict is hard boiled - what happened to poach?!
  • Brunch spot
  • Good, but definitely not worth the hour and a half wait at all. Was expecting much more.
