The food is still very good even though there are far fewer choices since they rebranded. The staff were lovely and friendly. I’m not sure if they still have the same organic food sources that they did.

Great vibe. Love the rows of vegetables that's grown in the restaurant which the chef uses for the dishes. The gluten-free and dairy-free menu makes for interesting dishes that are delish. Great place to go for lunch.

So wonderful to find a restaurant totally gluten and dairy free. Loved the food and service and will go again, however it will have to be for special occasions as it is at the expensive end.

Great service. Wonderful, unique decor. Food was truly different and delicious. I had the king crab orchecetti. Highly recommend it with the rose pinot that they offer by the glass.

Food & coffee were great, service staff was attentive but probably not that kids' friendly (we had brunch on a Sun with the kids) in terms of menu. We still had a great overall experience :)

very attentive service, creative menu. tried the lightly smoked salmon eggs benedict which was okay. desserts tasted better, the sundae (which looks different from my concept of a sundae - hence kudos for the creativity) and mango and black sesame ice cream were nice

A really eye catching ambience. Ordered the salmon which was cooked to perfection and tasted really healthy. A must visit place for the health conscious. Would definitely visit again to try the other dishes.
