I love that you know exactly where your food is coming from, down to the spices!



When you walk in, you go up to the counter and order. After you order, you choose a seat and they bring it out to you. They have 2 and 4 seater tables, as well as community tables.



Need a conversation starter? Next to the register, they have cards with questions similar to this one.


They have a phenomenal menu.


Love that they use mason jars.


I ordered the Poached Eggs & Black Bean Cake with Jalapeño Butter Sauce.


We also ordered the Potato Latkes with Chives & Sour Cream to share.


My husband ordered the Cinnamon Challah French Toast.



My husbands face after he took his first bite! He instantly said, “Let’s get back in line and order more!”


They suggested the Gin & Tonic. I was not disappointed! They put their own twist on it by adding in champagne.

I would say that this was one of our favorite brunch experiences. The employees were super friendly, even sharing in our excitement of being first timers! I can’t rave enough about how amazing the food was. Every single bite. I feel like it kept getting better and better!

We chose a two seater table by the window, which had gorgeous natural lighting. Knowing us, we would have loved to sit at the community table. I love that this is becoming more popular in Columbus. Always great to connect with strangers who become friends over great food.

One thing you should know – the parking! They have a couple spots out front, but, this place is amazing – meaning, they’re usually taken! If you go on Sunday, meters are free. There is a great deal of street parking, just be aware of permit parking!
