When I worked in Thousand Oaks this was my go to place for lunch. Seasonal specials keep the menu interesting. There's ample parking, a quiet outside patio to escape the annoying people and music from inside, and great appetizers.
Cheery mini-chain specializing in gourmet comfort food, and eclectic take-out. – In Short
It's almost like sitting in someone's kitchen--chaotic, communal and appetite-stimulating. Homey dried flowers and hanging baskets feel familiar but the ingredients from this pantry are impressively foreign. Stuffed cases of gourmet goods line the casual-chic dining room, with sturdy wood tables and paneled windows. A vast sandwich selection like the Brie with balsamic and mixed greens are popular items, as are salads like the tangy green apple, chicken and yogurt. Take-out dinners feature chicken entrees with sides of grilled vegetables and mashed potatoes.
this place used to be good 2 years ago but not anymore – Big menu and a nice atmosphere. The food is okay--I've eaten here many, many times and everything is average. The main problem with the food is that nothing is served hot enough. Eggs and soup should definately be served hot! The restaurant is usually crowded and the service is slow. Every time I go here they are slow to notice you at first, then your food arrives cold, then they don't come back to check on you, and then you have to track down your waiter to get your bill. The alcoholic drinks cost $7.25 each and are weak. If you don't mind slow service, average food, and prices that are too high for what you get, give this place a try.
Dissapointed by Hype – I heard only great things about this place but upon visiting I was sadly disappointed. There was a large crowd so it didn't offset me with the 25 min wait but it took another 15-20 min for the waitress to acknowlege my presence. After little attention and several mistakes I almost didn't notice their cuisine. The main courses are decorative and decent in taste but somewhat pricey but the desserts are definately fattening and devine. I was a bit dissapointed but willing to give it another try.
