happy - Edit

The owners of this establishment are rude and are not eager to please the customer! Very disappointing!
The owner since this time has gone above and beyond to make things right. So I have since then changed my rating. I’m happy to report by the way.

Pros: food good

Harbinger of things to come - Edit

Many gluten free bakery options. Triple chocolate brownie excellent. Nut butter and compote on bread, my selection, not so good, difficult to eat due to melted nut butter on a very tough gluten free bun. Hubby had Harbinger sandwich which I kept eyeing and wished I had ordered. Also strange, no sweetener options for the coffee, white sugar and simple syrup..huh?? Also the Methodical coffee is very acidic and almond milk does't quite do the trick at balancing, basically just disappears in your coffee. They really need to offer a legit soy creamer with more body and natural sweeteners, agave, coconut sugar, etc. Cute atmosphere, good service, but if they're going to appeal to vegans they'll need to work out some of these details.

Pros: southern shabby chic decor, friendly service, unique quality coffee, off beaten path

Vegans will be very happy here!! - Edit

The Harbinger is a great new addition to the growing restaurant scene on upper Rutledge & King. Beginning with awesome coffee (almond milk is available) followed by a superb variety of baked goods (many of which are vegan, many are gluten free) as well as grab-and-go salads. I started with an iced latte and the sriracha mama cookie (fantastic!) then took 2 salads with me (tabouli & sweet potato/chickpea - fantastic choices!!). And local sourcing is very important to the Harbinger. I will going back a LOT! Lots of seating, friendly & fast service. Don't miss out on this!!
