Basically like Bruxie with beer. There’s a decent tap list, but pretty much all basic stuff. Decent waffles/sandwiches, but kind of pricey for what you get. The dessert ones looked like a better choice than the savory options.

Visited July 2, 2014.

Stopped in for a quick bite to eat on the way to a show up the street. Turns out that the venue (The Observatory now, formerly The Galaxy) is practically walking distance from here. This is in an upscale shopping center. The restaurant itself has a crappy layout. The door is on one end and there is a narrow walk way all the way around the restraurant that hugs the bar. If this place gets full I would hate to have to get a seat at the far end of the bar. Also, the service was crummy. Nice enough people but slow and disorganized. I ordered a beer and my food at the same time. The lady was nice enough to let me try two different beers to pick which one I wanted. Well, after choosing and ordering I waited about 10 minutes before a different bartender came by and asked if I needed a beer. The food took 25-30 minutes to get there too. It was pretty good though. I ordered the fried chicken on my waffle sandwich. $10 was about the upper end of what I thought was fair for a smallish piece of chicken on a waffle with some gravy, and no sides. The beer wasn’t cheap either. $7 for the 4.something percent pale ale. This might be a good pit stop on the way to a show at the Observatory but I won’t be making a regular stop out of this place.

If you’re charging like a fancy restaurant then you need to have good service too, otherwise why bother spending more money?

Visited for a late lunch. Although it is mostly counter space, you are not allowed to seat yourself. Service is somewhat inattentive, and despite there being plenty of open seats, it took about 4 or 5 minutes to be noticed/greeted, and another few minutes to be seated. They seem to have some pretty stellar events and the tap list that was left over when I was there was pretty epic, but I can’t believe that this is the norm. Grey Monday, Reueuze, Bourbon County Stout, Bourbon County Barley Wine, Pugachev’s Cobra, Bourbon Santa’s Helper, etc. Infact, hardly any non BA/high alcohol beers. Food was pretty decent. Definitely worth checking out if you are in the area. Prices were definitely on the high side of things. Oh, and if you are into coffee, go check out Portola next door!
