Foursquare Tips

  • Eat here! Delicious food and drinks. They make alot from scratch. Good wait staff as well! A must for breakfast in Gaslamp!
  • Outstanding from start to finish. Considering moving to SD just for this place.
  • Classic Bloody Mary is very picturesque! I would ask for more tomato juice though...
  • Absolutely awesome Shrimp and corn cake Benediction dish. Try it!
  • Fresh blueberry pancakes w/blueberry compote
  • The waiters here are friendly and fun and the strawberry chocolate pancakes are amazing!
  • Shrimp & Corn Cake and Wild Salmon cake were excellent take on eggs Benedict
  • If you love dry pancakes on a slab of wood this is the place for you!
  • Candy Apple Sangria! Man, don't let the sweetness fool ya!
  • Salmon diamonds = heaven in my mouth. If you're craving dessert for breakfast (which is totally acceptable in my book), definitely go for the tiramisu pancakes. Love the outdoor patio, too.
  • A wonderful experience from the Mushroom flatbread, kabob trio for me and the masala chai braised short ribs for Jacque.... A great staff which made the experience memorable.... Thanks Inga...
  • Must have the blueberry pancakes; any crepe dish will satisfy and specialty teas and coffee are a must try.
  • Appetizers are huge and shareable. Chicken, mozzarella, and apricot jelly stuffed Cristo Crepes are a flavor explosion.
  • The flatiron steak flatbread was great. The veggie and rice cakes for breakfast were great. I hope they move to Chicago. (I can dream!)
  • Bluberry pancake
  • Schne Terrasse mit gutem Blick auf das Geschehen!
  • This lamb burger is doing everything for me right now. #SDCA
  • Really awesome breakfast/brunch spot - amazing cast iron omelette and awesome stuffed french toast.
  • Short rib skillet is better than filet mignon. Tiramisu pancakes are a MUST! Try the mimosa flight, sampler of 6. Sit outside when weather is comfy. Sat us quickly on a busy Saturday. Good service.
  • The fruits are old. Don't order french toast.
