    The food was delicious and big portions. The food came out extremely fast. We ordered a handful of things and no complaints on any dish. Also, this was pricey, but they have some of the best orange juice I’ve ever had.

    We brought some friends who came to visit from out of town and they enjoyed it quite a lot. We really have a great time each visit and have never disliked any dish we’ve ordered. This time we had the restaurant week brunch menu and it was worth it! So delicious and unique.

    Service was fabulous with plenty of staff. Loved the food, large to huge portions, most things can be shared unless you want to take home left orders. The noise level inside was very loud and although they have outdoor seating if your seated along Washington Ave it may also be very loud.

    The food is always wonderful here. And they really try with the outdoor ambience, but it is noisy and full of flies. Yet I return, month after month, because the food is just so darn good.

    We were thankful for the reservations; overheard that wait times are up to an hour. The food was excellent. Brisket Hash was the bomb, Chocolate Bacon Silver cakes I can eat you every day, portobello fries were yum and the aioli on the side ties it all together. Overall, a must ✨

    Quaint location. But we were told they had air conditioning but upon entering there were lots of fans blowing around and really not much air conditioning. It was so hot after our initial drinks, we had to leave and go someplace else. Our waiter was very understanding and kind, he went above and beyond in Compton drinks. We had also ordered a couple of appetizers which we paid for, love great Maple but was not a place to beat the heat.

    come here all the time and our waitress with the blue hair that served us on 9/3/22 at 1pm did not check on us untill wanted the check. every time we try to call/flag her she ignored us. we had to call on another waitress to ask for small plates. she didnt give us a chance to ask for more water since it was a heated day. I’ve come here all the time and we were never ignored by our waiter or waitress like this, always great service.. the food servers were awesome and other waitress we flagged down just for 2 small plates were great. i get that it was busy, my 9 year old asked for straws to the bartender that day and when he was at the bar another female female waitress was giving my son the dirty evil look like he wasn’t suppose to ask the bartender. bottom line our waitress service especially the women with the blue hair was Terrible!

    Even with a rather warm morning here in San Diego, the outdoor seating was in the shade and comfortable. Service and food were wonderful. Indoor seating was crowded and noisy, so we chose to sit outdoors. The noise level there was low enough to hear each other. Each of us enjoyed our brunch. Food and drinks and coffee were outstanding. Portion sizes good to large. Friendly server. Parking might be an issue from time to time, but we were lucky. I do recommend it, but only if you're not in a hurry!

    Phenomenal from beginning to end! Greeted warmly, seated quickly and waitstaff was attentive and engaging. We ordered French Toast Logs, huge and my wife was in heaven! I ordered brisket hash with side of deep fried sliced jalapeños, simply delicious and well balanced. Fresh squeezed grapefruit juice and piping hot coffee. What cam you say, other than YES PLEASE! Will definitely keep this as a favorite breakfast spot.

    Waited probably 15 mins to be greeted by the server. I ordered an espresso, a cocktail for my lady. 20 mins later the server came by to take our food order, still no drinks. Food arrived promptly, but no silverware or plates (we expressed we’d be sharing), still no drinks. My espresso came to the table first, then a few minutes later the cocktail. Didn’t see the server until I had to ask someone else for our check.
