A great location for brunch. I've always had a good meal here. The prices are a bit on the high side and service is hit or miss. They take reservations and I would highly recommend that option if you want to avoid a long wait. GooglePlace - October 2017

Love the food, but the insane wait, the loudness, the cold atmosphere, the lack of our waiter checking back in on us to see how food was, being forgotten by the host for almost 20 minutes even though we had a reservation, and then offering only 2 bathroom stalls in the women's room for 100's of diners all made for a less than favorable experience. I don't need to sort thru all that just to have good Farmer's Hash. No plans to go back. GooglePlace - September 2017

Great place. One of the best hot chocolate I ever had. Quality of the food is too good. Will definitely recommend this place. GooglePlace - September 2017

Felt like a cafeteria more than a restaurant. Pretty bad service.. Other than seating us and taking our order the waitress never checked on us. I had to go up to the desk to ask for condiments and the bill. They also "didn't have enough water glasses" to give us water. Food was good though. I understand there's a large quantity of customers however you're also a business that should expect that kind of demand one weekend to the next. GooglePlace - July 2017
I eat here pretty regularly. It is about two blocks from my work, and some days I just want breakfast rather than lunch. So this is my go-to. I would agree with some reviewers that it is not cheap, but then again what is in Seattle - especially in South Lake Union? The portions are plenty for a hearty eater, and they use locally sourced ingredients as much as possible. The pork cutlet with eggs for breakfast will make you think you are eating in a farmer's country kitchen . Good stuff. GooglePlace - June 2017
