Here on business, a colleague suggested this place. The decor was creative/ artistic, the staff and clientele diverse, and there wasn't anything on the menu that I wouldn't have tried! I opted for the crab cake sandwich with sweet potato fries. Very, very good. Even had dessert- the flourless chocolate cake which was rich as expected. Great, unique spot for some eats!

Family gathered here at this eclectic restaurant for lunch to celebrate. This place is so cute, reminds me of the coffee shop in Friends. Our entire party each had an amazing meal, from salads to sandwiches to pasta and soup. The restaurant is very clean and the wait staff is very attentive and friendly. Definitely going back to try more of the menu and relax in this amazing place.

The food is good -- and consistent. I have eaten there many times and never had a bad meal. I always get the yellow gazpacho (seasonal) when they have it. The noise level is quite variable, but at times a bit on the high side. Service is generally good, but not as consistent as the food. But even when they are slower or less attentive, they've always been very pleasant.

First time here and loved it. The food is SUPER fresh and so tasty! Make sure you try the baba ganoush - it is wonderful. This gives me a reason to grow eggplants in the summer!! Had a wonderful Panini with Brie and spinach. The other members of my party agreed that we would be back!!!
