I do have fond memories of the Alfalfa on Limestone. But we love the servers. Margarita was disappointing

The food is lackluster to say the least. Ordered the tofu burrito w/ brown rice .. zero flavor. The huevervos ranchos also left a lot to be desired. We took 2 bites and asked for a check. This was right before they ended lunch service but that doesn't excuse the flavorless food. They still changed us 1/2 price for food... More

Were looking for a place that serves breakfast later in the morning & this fit the bill. Food was very good, also the menu was very varied & was surprised to see how many ethnic foods they served. It had a nice laid back vibe, almost a college hang-out kind of feel to it. The food was fresh & tasty...I... More

It has the making of a good restaurant. It just needs more flavor. It's like a tabouli lacking in mint, lemon and parsley and has too much bulgar. Kick up the seasoning.

It didn't look like much when we walked in for dinner. More like a student cafe.. And we actually wandered around town a little before going back. But glad we did. The food was creative and excellent. Best food on our three week trip through the states. Would go back.

This was our Good Friday meal. The foods served to us at Alfalfa were amazing and delicious. We started with the black bean empanada appetizer, and followed with potato cheddar soup. The soup texture was smooth as it had been pureed. The flavor was delicious. I had the fish taco entree and my husband ordered the falafel burger. All of... More

I have always loved this place. They have a wonderful menu and often have unique and local selections as specials. Brunch, lunch or dinner, you can't go wrong. I love the bean burritos, quiche and anything else I've tried. Atmosphere is laid back, fun and vibrant. Usually great service.

We ate there for dinner on a Saturday night. There were all kinds of empty tables but they sat us in the window right in between two tables and we were practically on top of the other tables. The food was good, it was slow to come out. I had high hopes for this place, we love local establishments with... More

We were taken to this restaurant by friends of ours. We had an omelet and the blueberry pancakes. The taste was great but the food, esp the omelet were not hot. I prefer my eggs HOT. The flavors and ingredients are natural and very tasty. They just need to serve the food when it is ready rather than leave it... More

I could eat here everyday and be happy, but I only get to eat here on occasion. My favorite dish is the Country Ham Benedict! Gosh, my mouth is watering now. The hollandaise sauce is homemade and they don't mind giving you a little extra. A bit small and we usually have to wait but it's worth it!
