Typical breakfast fare includes wheat and oat pancakes with bananas and berries; scrambled eggs with quinoa, charred broccoli and shredded carrots; house-made turkey sausage; and steak and eggs with sweet potato hash and marinated kale.
You'll also find Buffalo chicken meatballs finished with yogurt-based blue cheese; and sides that include cauliflower rice and rainbow quinoa; marinated kale and soy-ginger carrots, citrus beets and bok choy; and roasted fingerling potatoes.
Breakfast dishes are $8 to $15; all-day selections, $10 to $13.50; and dinner choices, $15.50 to $21. Eat in and take out food is available.
