    1. This sounds delicious… but
    2. That name sounds like an illegal sexual position.

    $6 smoothies? Get outta here.

  • Went here this morning, they have one kind of smoothie (which to be honest looked pretty rowdy) but they didn’t have any ice?? I also walked by the night before and it looked like all the ingredients were sitting out overnight and all they had was regular coffee.

    Don’t get me wrong, when they get ice going over there, i’ll be all over it.

    That sign is fantastic (oodles of charm) – wish there more of those around this city.

  • Uh?

    How is it that a waffle is worth $8? It’s flour, water, salt, eggs, sugar, maybe buttermilk.

    And don’t tell me maple syrup. A huge container of great artisanal buzzword syrup is like $12.

    Awesome! Can’t wait to give this place a try. Sundevich is awesome! my hopes is that this place compliments it very well. It looks like it will. So happy this is here. Best of Luck!

    Tried going today and it was closed, with a sign saying that they had been overwhelmed by interest and were closing temporarily until they could figure things out, or something to that effect, so if you are interested in going in the next week or so, I’d call first to check on the status.
