I hope this place does well. It's a very nice looking place that's set a little away from the main traffic of Glendale. It really is in a perfect setting in Glendale. I could see it being a big weekend brunch place, but I don't think

Brand Blvd and north Glendale is a beautiful, comfortable place that is depressingly short on quality eateries (just how many Armenian markets do you need in a neighborhood? jesus christ...)

When I saw this place open up it seemed to be constructed with some actual taste and my interest was immediately piqued.

I went in to assess and had a really pleasant experience. The atmosphere and layout isn't giant, but comfortable and classy. The design is on par with a moderately fancy Hollywood/Beverly based eatery.

The service was friendly, helpful, and speedy. She explained they specialize in locally grown, fresh, and organic food which is why they don't have a freezer. Because of this commendable dependence, the fluctuation of ingredients and item availability is to be expected.

All the items are a reasonable $6-10 and were flavorful, a decent size, and fresh tasting. I particularly appreciated the fact it wasn't drowned in grease and oil.

Are there better places in LA? Sure. But this is by far one of the best options in the area and deserves business to not only encourage quality growth, but because the food and drinks are actually quite good!

Pros: Nice aesthetic, local/organic food, friendly service

Cons: Ocassionally limited offerings (but expected w/ fresh food)

the sandwiches and salads were great,
I've had breakfast there too, there's no better omelette in town. Best of all the prices are very reasonable

This place is good for a recess or break from work, with tasty treats and close proximity to many businesses in an underdevloped part of town. However, those who come here for breakfast and lunch will likely be dissapointed by the small selection which is served on paperware (they do not have a cleaning station apparently). This old, but nicely renovated, establishment is also lacking effective HVAC. All in all, this place has some potential, and the offerings look good (when we dined here last weekend, they were out of half their menu), but perhaps rushed their opening without working out many kinks. IMHO, this place is more of a coffee shop than restaurant.
