100% the best Salmon Eggs Benedict I've ever eaten. Also had the Mimosa Flight which was amazing! $21 for 6 different flavoured mimosas and the food was extremely reasonably priced for the quality that was offered.
Love the decor, great service, honestly can't recommend this place enough. If you're looking for somewhere for breakfast/brunch, you HAVE to go here.

The Gaslamp’s favorite brunch stop slings stuffed French toast with agave cream cheese, fruit-topped pancakes and farm-fresh egg frittatas served in mini iron skillets. Housemade sangria rocks.

The place is lively and facing heritage buildings of 1800s. Service is excellent. Keep good amount of time to have a leisurely brunch.

My husband and I shared the chicken barley soup, smoked salmon and chicken legs with a rice filled knish. All was delicious. Our server was very attentive to all our needs. We will definitely return.

Cafe 21's version of eggs Benedict was incredible! Chose shrimp and corn version that was ground up and baked to form the base. I had scrambled egg whites in lieu of poached eggs on top. Finally, the cilantro cream sauce was perfect. Not a fan of cilantro when you can tell it is there...flavor was light yet savory. Service was outstanding as well.

This is a farm to table restaurant with loads of clean, fresh flavor! I recommend the Heirloom Tomato Bloody Mary. It's yellow and comes with lots of yummy toppings.

I would go back and order that Bloody along with Shrimp and Corn Benedict.

Oh, any my Grandson recommends the pancakes!!!!!
