Description [edit]
With a distinct focus on breakfast and lunch, the café opens daily at 7: 30 a.m. (8 a.m. on weekends) and closes at 4:30 p.m.

It has a diverse menu that thrives on organic options for the meat eater, the vegetarian and the vegan alike.

If you're looking to make a sit-down meal out of it, the breakfast menu features a full spread of omelets, tofu scrambles, breakfast burritos, French toast and bagels with lox, all priced between $5 and $6.

If you're making a quick stop in on your way into the office, the deli counter offers a variety of grab-and-go items, from Asian tuna sandwiches, southwestern BLTs and hummus wraps to a solid selection of specialty salads.
