June's All Day

Take the name literally: June’s All Day is, in fact, an all day kind of place. Not only is the interior so beautiful you want to move in, but the menu guides you around the clock. Start with the breakfast chalupa, then order off the extensive but edited wine menu. Meet friends for drinks, then order dinner. It’s a good day.

Bird Bird is best described as that place that you shouldn’t go back to for the 3rd time this week, but you do. The house made buttermilk biscuit sandwich is that good.
