  • Nice and intimate as for service I would give them a little break. Some of the servers are NEW and have not got the rhythm of their job. But they all are pleasant. Must try their Crab Cake and Grit
  • Brunch is a great deal. Portions are large, local organic food is great, and they have an awesome Bloody Mary.
  • Key lime pie and the pecan cake is the best! The food is really good and kinda healthy too. Love the vibe.
  • Yummy and fulfilling!
  • Catfish and beer selection
  • Gluten free options!!Love their wings, falafel, and wild rice
  • Great menu, will satisfy everyone. Excellent beer list as well.
  • Great chicken omelette
  • Got takeout from here and they were very accommodating of food allergies/sensitivities, even uncommon ones! Delicious, fresh food. Try the Greek salad with grilled salmon.
  • Sweet potatoe fries !!!!
  • Sweet potato hash is yummy
  • Yummy brunch and mimosas
  • Try the online ordering system. Super quick and convenient!
  • While we are just older + disabled (deaf) customers, most of people are young but we love young + interesting environment from Busboys and Poets restaurant. We even get superb service from it... Thx
  • Less a cafe and more of a full restaurant. They also sell a left leaning selection of books.
  • Great food & service as usual
  • The food here is great! Parking is a tough find, though. Also, no ATM here or nearby. A very nice restaurant.
  • Brunch is awesome.
  • Good menu esp. for a mixed crowd of omnivores, vegans, etc. Generally nice vibe & space here; solid coffee drinks. Nachos are a good table pleaser! Usually pleasant staff and ok service.
