I've been coming here for about 20 years and I never get sick of it. Brunch is decent but the dinner menu is vastly underrated - there's a scallop entree for about $20 that I'd put it up against anything in the neighborhood. Menu is standard bistro stuff with some offbeat sleepers: salmon with lentils is consistently really good, ziti is surprisingly good, macaroni and cheese is great. Oddly, the fries range from fantastic to sort of bad depending on the batch. Service is laid back but does not mind if you are just having dessert and coffee. One thing to note is that the dinner menu stops around 11 or so and they start serving a stripped-down late night menu. Draws an interesting crowd - college students, families, people on dates, totally wasted people, the elderly, &c.

Went to brunch, and the place was PACKED and very loud. The food is good, but there wasn't anything very special about it...especially for the price they are charging for a plain omelet. The atmosphere is nice, but the service was pretty slow.
