Caution: have the time to wait if going on the wknd.
Rating Review: should be a 5 Cow rating but system won't let me due to rest. serving meat.

Went there for brunch on sunday, it was very busy but could still easily find a table. There were some musicians playing on the front patio which was really nice. They have indoor and outdoor seating. Had the tofu rancheros and it was delicious! Hubby liked the biscuits with vegetable gravy and fruit plate also. There's only a couple non-egg options for breakfast, would have liked some more, like a tofu scramble, etc. Will be going back again though!
