Fodor's Review

Just a block back from Sumner Beach this urban-style establishment has drummed up an extremely loyal clientele. By day it's a busy café; at night it morphs in to something a little more serious. Brunch may include brioche French toast, eggs Benedict, or a breakfast grill. On the dinner menu contemplate dishes like aged-beef rib eye with sauteed spinach and walnut butter or coq au vin with creamed parsnip. This place is a favorite with locals and weekend drivers from the

city so it can be busy. Book ahead if you're intent on eating here. Brunch is offered Fri.–Sun.
