So I happen to be eating at this place right now and had my laptop. I decided to go onto Citysearch to see what kind of reviews they've gotten, and let me tell you, the bad reviews are a bunch of Bu****it! The wait staff is VERY friendly, aware and are not slacking off. My waitress has been by to see me 4 times to get me refills, talk to me about beer choices and offer me dessert. (And they have the most DELICIOUS homemade chocolate chip cookies in the city. No joke. Ambrosia!)
It occurs to me that a lot of the bad reviews are several years old, but i just couldn't stand by and see this place get a bad name.
Yes, there is a cat that likes to sleep on a bar stool, and I was a little wary of this at first, but I asked my waitress about it, and apparent;y it's the owner's cat. It does not go on tables, behind the counter, or in the kitchen. There is an office that looks like it's in the kitchen but that is where the cat stays. I mean, if the cat were a problem, you'd think the place wouldn't have health scores in the high nineties, if not 100. Plus, everyone that comes in LOVES the cat. I've overheard two people so far say that that's part of the reason they love the place.
Anyway, I find the food here to be good, too. They have healthy options, (I'm gluten free and they accomadate that perfectly) and some comfort food. I see no reason to say the mean things I've read about this place.
What the waitstaff lack in experience they make up for in friendlyness and a willingness to listen.
Anyone who wants to have a relaxed lunch should come join me. And their new weekend brunch is delicious!
