Went today and there was a for lease sign on the window. Sad, I loved the food and they had great cocktails, decadent breakfast cocktails. Poor rating is because they were closed for good it seems.

I had their Eggs Benedict with pancetta which was pretty good and my daughter had me taste her Chilaquiles with chicken which... More

2 Sparrows was solidly "okay." I get a very solid "denny's" feel from this place. Most importantly, another brunch spot just opened down the street and it is phenomenal. So, go to Yolk

Both were very good, but the french toast was out of this world wiht strawberry and fresh whipped cream. my daughter ordered the Benedict and enjoyed it. Everyone got something different and liked all of the dishes. The coffee was very good. The... More

My husband and I enjoyed our lunch here so much that we came back for Sunday brunch with our 2 nieces. They had interesting dishes and drinks. The Brunch items were delicious. However, even with a reservation we had to wait about 15 minutes. And because of the high ceiling and wood interior, it was very noisy- so much so... More

I loved the atmosphere, neighborhood and the restaurant/food/service were all great. They really go for a different menu so you know you are in a foodie kind of place. Apparently the cinnamon rolls are to die for but they now only have them on weekends and maybe not every weekend? not sure, but that was my only negative and that... More

The eggs Benedict were the best I've ever had. The bacon wrapped asparagus was heavenly delicious. Great restaurant. You should try it.
