Choices has the highest quality burger for the lowest price in this area. That is what gets me coming back. On the other hand, this marketplace is far from ideal. Once when I came in, my order was forgotten, but I was compensated by getting my order for free. Because of this, and because preparation takes so long for them (even when they don't forget), I usually call my order in. I'm always told it will be ready in 15 minutes, which I've learned is never true. Sometimes it can take up to 35 minutes, and sometimes it will be ready in 20 minutes. This is an annoyance, but their burger burger has no competition in its price range in the area. The atmosphere does not appeal to me at all. For indoor dining, they have but one large table. For me, this is not good; although some people seem to enjoy it (or at least tolerate it). The pastries are hit or miss. Their scones are excellent, but the cake that I got was ridiculously dry and completely unenjoyable. I've had good cupcakes, and mediocre cupcakes; both with great frosting. Things behind the counter seem flustered and cramped, and can lead to confusion. Since they are usually packed, this is not good. Choices needs a larger space, more employees, and superior seating options. Despite their shortcomings though, no one can argue with their burger. So until someone else starts making great burgers at a good price, I'll continue to put up with Choices.

everything here is amazing lunch there everyday, but the service is really chaotic and slow...also, the baked goods are amazing, but weirdly the cupcakes are mediocre. my daughter licks off the icing, which is good, and then we end up throwing away the cake part b/c it's really dry and dense. it's bizarre b/c everything else there is amazing.

A great neighborhood place. It has a cozy feeling, but it's become so popular, it will have to be expanded...especially during the winter days. It's a very laid back operation, including the service. No one's in a terrible hurry there, which is nice at times, unless you have somewhere to be....

This is a great addition to the neighborhood. The food is both tasty and fresh. While the menu is basic, interesting twists are added to keep you coming back day after day. The only problem is the wait for the foood can be a bit too long. I wait because I enjoy the food but I'l like it even more if it arrived faster.

This place is great. So glad it opened up a few months back. The food is amazing-- from the burgers, to salads, to the cupcakes. And the capuccino and fresh-squeezed orange juice? Best. The service can be a bit slow at times, but this place is often busy. The counter staff is always so nice, too. And i think i have a crush on the adorable french owner. merci!
