    incredibly tasty California style mushroom pizza! perfect crust and great flavor. if a cocktail you've had here before isn't on the menu anymore, you can ask to have an in season version of it made.

    Organic and sustainable haven, with recycled leather belts on booth seats. Pizzas really good. And fermented appetizer plate worth trying.

    The Walnut French Toast for Brunch is prime. Friendly staff and a nice, casual vibe makes for a lovely experience outside of the chaos that is Downtown Berkeley.

    Kale salad was unexpectedly good. Simple ingredients used to creat awesome flavor. Spicy tomato pizza is also delicious.

    Had a great brunch here, which included their spicy tomato pizza with anchovies. The poached egg with ragu was good, and the pancakes were as well.

    Excellent paleo friendly brunch spot! Asked for my scrambled eggs dish to be gluten free & dairy free - and they were very accommodating.

    Nettle scramble is awesome too much for me to finish. Poached eggs and the French Toast also looks amazing.

    The soda is weird at first, I saw a little girl make a face when she tried and pushed it across the table to someone else. It's like fizzy vinegar.

    Get the French Toast if you like things that are obscenely sweet. Nothing subtle about this dish.

    The best thing we had was a bottle of Pinot From #HandleyCellars we brought in. All the dishes we tried were confused and blah, service was terrible and we ended up on a table for two with 3 people.

    Outstanding spicy chicken (little kick). Chicken has true flavor because the meat is properly cooked unlike most restaurants. Naturally juicy - Wasn't salted in brine.
