We went with some friends and made a reservation the day before. I am glad we had a reservation because it definitely got busy. I ordered the pork belly benedict. My wife got the French toast. Both were excellent. I would return here again the next time I'm in Seattle. GooglePlace - July 2017

The food is really good I'd recommend it, but often it's too salty. I got the crab eggs Benedict the sauce was a little cold and overly salty. But I still don't begrudge this place it's a decent chain stop for brunch. GooglePlace - July 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

We were seated right away by smiling people and then greeted by our server right away, as well! Coffee was good, food was good, and I loved all the local, organic choices! They didn't even wince at me when I asked for a side of gravy for my hash (I couldn't decide between biscuits and gravy or the hash, so I compromised!). Loved the atmosphere and the 80s music, too!
