New American comfort food in quaint digs
American · Murray Hill · $$
The Zagat Review
Murray Hill locals tout this “adorable” neighborhood “favorite” for “tasty” , “comfort” -oriented New American at a “reasonable cost” served in a “country-cafe” setting; there’s “high demand” for the “amazing brunch” , so bring “patience” to deal with the inevitable “waits.”

I use a wheelchair, upon arriving a woman was coming from the grocery store and showed me the lift in the building next door to use. The dining area is fairly cramped, but I fortunately got the one spot that would work for a wheelchair. The french toast is good, unique in that it's from a baguette. Not the hardest baguette as I was worried, but its also not a freshly baked baguette either. I did appreciate the generous amount of berries

Service was very good so they would get 4 1/2stars. It is cute and quaint inside as well but very very loud and tables were going to close together . But the food was not good at all! We got deviled eggs and they come out looking gross. They tasted gross as well and the texture was very odd. Spinach and artichoke dip didn't taste good and needed a lot more cheese in it. And the sandwich that came out didn't have any flavor and the baguette was so hard to bite into it was ridiculous that we ended up eating just the over cooked dried piece of chicken. fries weren't that good either. Very disappointed cuz we came here because it had good ratings.

It was my first time. I had a fantastic breakfast when I went with my friend I got the avocado toast the portion I thought was small. But the taste was out of this world. Really was good and a must have when you go. I also had the orange juice which was freshly squeezed and you guys already know fresh is always better ahah it was good overall was happy with my meal
