  • Food is slow on Sunday morning. Iced coffee is good. Tables with postcards under glass are interesting.
  • Bottomless coffee, great ambiance music, & plentiful wireless Internet. Great mix of tables (bright by windows, dark in back, hard back chairs, stools, booths...) One of my favorite places to write.
  • Absolutely love this eatery! Thrifty Thursday 15% off every last Thursday of the month! Entire menu consists locally obtained deliciousness! You order and pay at the front counter, which I prefer!
  • Sweet potato oatmeal pancakes = amazingness.
  • Order at the counter first. Self-serve coffee. Find a seat by one of the windows and enjoy the view!
  • Everything!!! Good luck with the blind sometimes is good sometime not too much
  • Love their drink, Grow a Pear. So light and refreshing!
  • The breakfast burrito is amazing.
  • The breakfast burrito is incredible.
  • The breakfast burrito is tasty and filling.
  • Amazing waffles and burritos
  • The breakfast sandwich is delicious! They put thick, crispy bacon on the sandwich and it is amazing.
  • Not all about the carbs, you can get a decent eggs benedict or hash here as well
  • Blueberry pancakes were amazing and fresh squeezed orange juice was so delicious!
  • Be brave and order the Blind Special. It changes every week, and you're allowed to ask whether it's sweet or savory. Always a great meal for $7!
  • The sweet potato oatmeal pancakes are delicious, filling and ALMOST healthy.
  • Awesome bloody marys!
  • Great breakfast place. Breakfast sandwich was amazing.
  • Pancakes were alright, you get quite a bit, but still a little overpriced I think.
  • Great breakfast burrito, love the pancakes. Fun place to go late night as long as you like keeping it casual and it's not too hot outside.
