A last-minute brunch choice. Never been, probably won't go back. The most this place has to offer is people-watching opportunities: there's a great cross-section of Oakland folks here. The service is below sub-par, unfortunately. It took us forEVer to be seated, then another eternity to be waited on. Had to *ask* for silverware. Huh. My french toast was deep fried... I am still trying to decide whether the guitarist hollering way-off-key renditions of Sinatra songs was a plus or a minus. I think I'm going with plus. He added to the "character" of the place, that's for sure.
