Near the front door, my eye catches a subtle touch (see top photo) of one of the owners who is Chinese American. These little heavy polychromed Chinese bowls were everywhere when I was a kid. Now they're scarce and collectible. The design of the restaurant is simple and straightforward and the space benefits from the north-facing large storefront windows and high ceilings. It has a happy generous feel. I read that the space was formerly an architect's office (another casualty of the economy?) and I remember walking by and noticing it before.
The food matches the space. Simple, hardy, and good. I have the scrambled eggs with crispy (deep) fried potatoes and rustic toast. Chris has the french toast with fresh strawberries. Good Equator coffee is served. Worth a repeat trip.
