Just got back from Sunday brunch and it was excellent. From the home-baked scones to the buckwheat blueberry pancakes to the tiny roasted potatoes, every bite had its own distinctive flavor. Even the little mache salad on the side of the plate had distinctive flavor. By distinctive flavor, I do not mean that the food was overly seasoned or salted, which I dislike. I mean the scones tasted like buttermilk and the potatoes tasted like potatoes. I could taste each ingredient. Even the decaf coffee was delicious. The atmosphere was casual and homey, and the service was very good. Can't wait to come back for dinner! Note: Whatever else you may order at brunch, do be sure to get a side of the home-baked muffins or scones to get the full experience.

Don't eat here -- I like keeping it the way it is. In all fairness though, this is the best place in the Heights (North). Great locals, solid food, and a nice wine list.
