We’re in awe of VB…

Everything we tried was absolutely wonderful, hot and fresh tasting. Our omelet was bursting with flavor, packed with goat cheese, FRESH spinach and peppers. The special raspberry and mascarpone french toast was delightful too. It came hot, was perfectly textured, not too sweet or tart.

A perfect breakfast isn’t complete without a few strong yet smooth cups of coffee. VB delivers, as with everything else. Big cups of strong, flavorful joe, the ideal morning cure.

The decor is light and airy, soothing even. Flowing shapes, soft atmospheric lighting, and soft colors definitely make for a relaxing morning repast. Equally impressive? The service – unfailingly positive, prompt and polite. Oh, I almost forgot, the prices are outstanding. I would have paid more, and still thought it was a bargain.

Overall, we can’t recommend VB enough. It stands alongside Tre Kronor as our favorite breakfast spot.
