Best part was that they are within walking distance of the Maxwell Hotel. Breakfast tacos were ordinary. Wife had no raves for her breakfast either except for the biscuit.

Went on Sunday morning, October 19, 2014 and it was closed. I think they went out of business because their hours were posted on the door indicating they were open. But the place was sealed up tighter than a drum. Don't make the trip!

First I have to say there are some misleading things about the restaurant's name and image. It is not really a cafe, but a restaurant. You can't drop in for a cup of joe and a muffin. There were no laptops out. The tables have...More

A group of eight of us, including one small child, had brunch here last weekend. Half of us ordered mimosas (pulpy orange juice - yum!) and the other half, sake and bacon bloody marys (a big hit with the men in our group). The bacon...More
