My wife and I have lived above and across from this place for 4 years. The coffee has always been great, the outdoor seating is ideal in the spring and summer, as the midday sun swings around it just right. The breakfast burritos are good to grab and go, and while breakfast/brunch have been consistently good, dinner was lacking a bit until recently. Now there are dishes like herbed chicken, stews, risottos and other hearty dishes that really satisfy at a nice price. Nothing terribly elaborate, just really good food, with veggie options that my wife somehow seems to really enjoy (even though I cannot fathom a dish that's both great and veggie). There's a few beers on tap and some wines that are just adjacent to being ""all right"" but my wife calls them ""entirely drinkable."" The staff might look a bit cooler-than-thou but actually are fairly friendly once you engage them. If you take into account their hangovers and the early hours they work, you begin to grasp them immediately, and it turns out they're all pretty lovely. The owner (? still), Louise, is a gem of a woman and brings her own Irish lilt and charm to the setting fairly regularly. Pros: Great for breakfast and brunch, newly-improved for dinner with some very solid dishes, sturdy wooden tables and some booths and easy-chairs indoors, good music if the staff is not too depressed (and even then it's good), outdoor sunshine, dog-friendly. Cons: Can be crowded for brunch, and often filled with hipsters in scruffy beards that just look dirty, not arty.
