My wife and I both enjoyed the coffee. The food was spectacular and varied. We split the salad with pears and added avocado to it and then split the waffles with pear, maple syrup and whipped cream...to die for! The decor is really cool with...More

What an underwhelming experience. I think you also expect at least smile when your brand is ‘smile’. Food not any good and the coffee was ok that was the only mere highlight. Don’t waste your time.

VERY COOL eatery/bar. We had brunch. Healthy eating for the most part. Friendly and attentive staying Staff, hard to find, so look closely on down to the door.

Remarkably UNREMARKABLE! McDonald's makes a better egg, cheese, and ham on an English Muffin. I felt rooked and not worth the cab there or back. ALSO, NO REAL AIR CONDITIONING! WE COULD NOT HAVE BEEN MORE DISAPPOINTED AND UNCOMFORTABLE.

Stumbled in here by accident - even though there are no accidents - and wound up getting my ultimate NY experience for breakfast. Friendly staff, a quaint hideaway, chic/industrial and simply great food.

We had a few options on our list. Decided on this place because it was packed. That was OK, even though they said they'd need to turn the table over in about an hour (timing was fine for us). Instead it took an hour to...More
