Hi, If you like soil to soul, down to earth organic food. A price that is high, yet the servings you get are decent. The service can be improved, yet many times to few servers to the amount of people to be served. The original owners have a passion to serve the individual or group personally for each. Yet, sometimes... More

Great service, cute restaurant. The baked goods were great and the rest of the food was fine. It seems a bit trendy for my liking. A lot of quinoa and kale. Almost like they're trying really hard to appeal to a large hipster population. The specialty coffees were not so great.

Funny to get this review in the middle of February, We have been closed since September. We do not even have quinoa on the menu. Makes me wonder who and why someone would take the time to write this now. We are proud hipsters who own the Fresh Sourdough Express, and we work really hard to appeal to anyone who... More

Stopped mid afternoon and went for the halibut chowder. First halibut experience and it was delicious. Watched other tables and everyone enjoyed. Sorry to miss breakfast.

Whatever your dietary issues, you can find yummy and comforting food here. Wait staff and cooks are friendly and accommodating. Great for families - either inside or at the picnic table and a play area outside. Warning: only breakfast, no lunch, on Sunday.

Hawaiian burger for me and it was very good. Helpful waiter sharing local intel with us. A bonus was they had some gluten free treat options. My spouse with celiac enjoyed their macaroons and stocked up on them. We were there for a late lunch before they closed for the day, so I scored on some of their day old... More

Saturday morning late hearty breakfast. 60's music and good coffee. Friendly staff. Toast of sourdough bread was really good. Feta and mushrooms etc with eggs very tasty. Halibut and cauliflower with other veggies: yum. Nice vibe.
