This place is quaint enough but it is inconsistent with service and food. Staff is rarely friendly. I go cause it is convenient and close to my work and they have healthy salads.

Four breakfasts in seven days, enough said! Avocado toast with pepitas and chile flakes was perfect.

Mom and I stopped for lunch: soup and 1/2 sandwich. Delicious, fast and healthy. They have gluten free and sourdough breads. Don't forget to try the cupcakes: mini or regular, high-low sugar or gluten free!
