  • Not overcrowded at all. Quick service and decent prices. Desserts are great!

  • Another reason why I love this place: soy milk & organic stevia for my coffee :)
  • Get the cheddar grits!
  • Excellent customer service. They have some of the best desserts in Durham. Sandwiches are top notch!
  • Shorts ribs are to die for! Melts in your mouth such wonderful flavor.
  • Portions are good size...salmon is delicious; shrimp Po-Boy is large!!
  • Love the kale salad!
  • Great place to have diner and chill. Loved the vegan chili, kale salad and the vegan key lime pie!! Ordered the tacos, dish was missing salsa, provided upon request and no avocado, lime or cilantro.
  • Cappuccino is outstanding--even with soy milk. So glad they have a Lavazza machine.
  • Tons if gluten free options. Food is fantastic. Looking forward to next time.
  • Get the Lemon Ricotta Pancakes !
  • Delicious food that's healthy plus there's free wifi! Gotta love it.
  • Short ribs, Greek yogurt cheesecake and pecan pie were among our favorites but everything was delicious. Nice atmosphere for dinner. Really good wine too.
  • The cocktails were great!
  • No! This place is mediocre at best. Bland, standard cafeteria food. Do you like eating in a college cafeteria? Do yourself a favor and eat anywhere else nearby...Foster's, Guglhupf, QShack, etc.
  • Went for breakfast and food tasted fine, polite staff. But... Waited 10 min before we found out espresso machine was down and then order was incorrect. Maybe we go back for dinner, but probably not.
  • Really good food! Great service! The daily specials are where it's at!
