    Neat place

    Had the cheese steak special and strawberries/nutella dessert. Both were pretty damn good. Very inexpensive too. Definitely would go back.

    Shhh, don't tell anyone how good this place is!

    The dishes are fresh, inexpensive, and unique. The Penny Egg sandwich with the soy-sage and pesto is fab and so is everything else we've had - both brunch and lunch dishes. Everything seems homemade from the fresh squeeze OJ to the fries. The service is not always attentive since they're always so busy, but this is by far one of our favorite restaurants in the area.

    tough for delivery

    The food is great and I come here regularly, but the wait is always long and when I try to order delivery, they either do not pick up the phone, put me on hold and never come back, or tell me to call back later because they're too busy. Why bother saying they can deliver if they don't want to?

    Good food, long waits

    I read the good reviews and went with a friend for dessert the other night. I ordered the red velvet cake which was good, but not exceptional. The cappuccino I ordered was very good. The atmosphere was nice, but our service was just OK. We were there late and might have been her last table, but it was clear that she wanted us to hurry. I am anxious to try brunch and/or dinner, but if you go for brunch I suggest going very early (before 10) or very late (after two). I have tried to go at 11 and 1 and was met with an hour wait, which we declined and went somewhere else. Maybe I'll try delivery!

    Best neighbor brunch!

    It's worth the wait... Try the penny egg sandwich. It's a weekly event.

    Yummy brunch!

    My favorite brunch spot in Murray Hill! Both the Penny Egg Sandwich & Nutella French Toast w/fresh fruit are amazing! I seem to just alternate between the 2 each time I come here. The atmosphere is super cute & cozy, and the prices are reasonable. The only thing that kills me every time is the WAIT! I always have to wait at least a full hour. It's super annoying and frustrating, but since i know the food is amazing I just suck it up. In the end it is totally worth it!

    soooo cutteeee, but sooo crowded

    Very cute and very busy. But they give you free coffee and the fall weather was perfect for sitting outside on their benches while we waited (over an hour - for our table) My brunch was really good. I ordered the Spinach Pie, yum. Brunch special included coffee or a mimosa - fabulous! However what I DID NOT LIKE, was that we waited forever to get a table and actually bought a lot of food, and we were rushed rushed rushed to leave. A deal breaker for me. Also, they charged my card for the wrong table and had to void it. Annoying.
