Condiment shelf had sriarcha, soy aioli (so good), soy vinegar, ketchup, honey, simple syrup, and whole milk (they offed cold brew coffee).

Lunch Menu

Double awesome ($7): delicious runny eggs oozing everywhere with cheese and pesto sauce, with that soy aioli and sriarcha on backup

If cornbread and hushpuppies made sweet sweet love and came out with a litter of perfectly fried babies that were greater than the sum of their parts, meet the Sweet Corn Fritters with a sriracha aioli ($4). If you put a maple aioli or syrup or honey on them instead, they could be a dessert, like denser corn donut holes.

Magical Kale Salad ($6) with local leafy kale woth local sea-brined feta, garlic Panko, rice wine vinaigrette, and a slow-poached then fried egg: meh. Fresh stuff but too much Panko to even be that healthful (and they almost have a stale taste) and just not as amazingly delicious as all their stuff. If you feel the need to get it, it is a lot better with the soy aioli.

Dinner Menu

At dinner time it goes from counter ordering to full service.

Daily Toast ($7) - I forget what all was in it, some cream, sesame seeds, cucumber, sriracha and more. Whatever it was was delicious.

Honey Walnut Shrimp ($17) with toasted nuts, honeycomb candy, crispy shells and walnut mayo: The walnut mayo was somehow more like a shallow pool of sweet cereal milk than I was expecting, and I guess the honeycomb candy was melting around in it. The crispy shell thing is cute, but it was hard to figure out how much of it I wanted to eat. The greens seemed a bit random, there to add a little color and substance but not particularly blending with the rest of the dish. The shrimp themselves were great.
 I got the feeling from this dish that I'm more into this place's lunch options. Most of them are available at dinner anyway, so stick with the "Smaller" plates, which is, I suppose, what I almost always suggest at all restaurants.


Chocolate potato chip cookie: disappointed the find out the only chocolate was that top drizzle. The potato chips were a nice salty touch, but honestly the cookie just want great. It was the quality of those cookies they gave you for free as a kid at the store.
