  • Thinking about holiday gifts? Check out Mercantile Bag, a selection of their oh-my-gawd house-made goodies!
  • Go for brunch, then get some cookies to go - and enjoy at the park.
  • Lots of great changes! VPC now opens at 7am M-F, and my Cappuccino didn't have meringue on top!
  • Extremely limited on street parking in a residential neighborhood ... take Metro rts 10 or 12 instead.
  • Such extreme locavorism, admittedly, is rarebut many regard farm-to-table dining an essential part of their job.
  • The banana brioche French toast is spectacular
  • An absolute gem- great for lunch/brunch or coffee meets. My favorite place to catch up with an old friend. (strangely enough- go for the BBQ sandwich)
  • Open faced mushroom sandwich and raspberry mint lemonade
  • Open faced mushroom sandwich is great! Cappuccino is pretty good (8/10). This is slow food, in a good way. Don't eat here if you are in a rush!
  • Please clear your table, this is a self-service restaurant/cafe.
  • Dreamy, rustic ambiance & delectable brunch every time. The central communal table brings an intimate neighborhood party feel, and the freshest of fresh ingredients make me thankful this place exists.
  • Caramelized banana brioche French toast goes hella hard a must order
  • Great atmosphere, even better chicken apple salad.
  • We went kooky for fork-pressed peanut butter cookies and fragile, jam-filled thumbprints frilly with toasted coconut.
  • Pulled pork is amazing!
  • Everything is good, but the almond croissant will change your life
  • Chocolate Cherry Oatmeal Cookie was dang lovely.
  • Cheery staff, self service coffee and fabulous sandwiches. Try the French dip.
  • Super friendly service, tasty cookies, within a cute ambience.
  • Great, dark, rich coffee. Mazzo ball soup also looked fabulous.
