Wish they had a wider selection of ciders, as well as a cider on tap.
Salad dressing was sweet, and the salad was overdressed.
Baked goods were not very good (brownies were dense and lacking in flavor).

We usually visit here for coffee only and occasionally the fresh baked goods prepared on-site. We had lunch this time and the food was excellent - fresh ingredients and prepared well. I highly recommend NSFC. Their coffee is amazing, not bitter like the place with the mermaid logo located on every street corner. 😃

We made reservations on early Sunday morning but we were seated in the very back area when there were tables available in the much nicer part of the second floor. In fact, We were only the second customers at 9:15 am and most reservations were for a much later time.
The food was okay but I think bread should be served with butter as an option. We ordered a sandwich for my son and the bread was so thick and mostly all bread.
Thanks.

I was excited to take my husband there for dinner having been there for lunch a few times but it was night and day difference upstairs!!! It was sooo loud in the bar area! Thankfully we made reservations for the small room on the side but we were forced to have to stand on the stairs waiting for someone to notice us only to have two ladies cut in front of us for the same room! For only having 6 tables in the room, our service was not very good unfortunately. By the end, I had really wanted a cup of coffee but my husband was tired of waiting for the waitress so we decided just to go.
I would recommend going for lunch but parking is a real issue having read that over 13,000 tickets have been issued since opening in 2018 and it was way too loud to be enjoyable.

First visit to this location and it’s worth the drive / finding parking (although I might Uber next time so we can enjoy the fantastic create your own mimosa option). The decor is beautiful and warm - a perfect accompaniment to the delicious, fresh food and stellar service at the upstairs brunch on Sunday.

My boyfriend and I had a reservation for a table in the upstairs wine bar but when we arrived they told us they didn’t have any tables and seated us at the bar. I didn’t want to make a big deal but I was frustrated that we were able to get a reservation if there weren’t in fact tables available. We would have gone somewhere else but we were hungry and it was Valentine’s Day so we knew there would be a wait everywhere else. The food and service were fine but on a special occasion I was hoping for a little more intimacy instead of brushing backs with others at the bar and being in a cramped space.

We had brunch reservations, so sat upstairs. Service was excellent, with friendly staff. I had the egg sandwich on brioche, and my friend had quiche with a salad. Both, and my mocha, were excellent! Definitely worth a return visit!

We had such high hopes about this spot but were very disappointed by the food and service. The table had no utensils and the coffee, though good, was served without spoons to stir the cream. The breakfast sandwiches were likewise disappointing. The pork sausage was horribly pink and the bacon was tough and chewy. We had to ask more than once for coffee refills. I could see returning for coffee and a treat in the downstairs area, but don’t intend to eat brunch there again.

Great food, great service. So glad I made a reservation! They even acknowledged and honored a request for a specific table. Will definitely be back!

This is a gem in Falls Church City! The upstairs dining area is SO cute...rustic exposed wood and all. Great food, great service, what's not to like? Highly recommend.

My girlfriends and I went here for a weeknight dinner. The upstairs is cozy with great drinks and food. We love this neighborhood spot!

What a wonderful brunch we enjoyed on New Year's Day. The service was impeccable and the food was absolutely delicious - so fresh and plentiful. And the ambience was calm and cozy. It was a perfect way for us to start the new year!

Surprisingly lovely meal with great food and drinks. We were in the upstairs loft wine bar and had a reservation before a show at The State Theater. It was a great experience and the staff was very attentive.

We enjoyed ourselves from start to finish. I bought some things downstairs and then relaxed upstairs til my friends got there. Food was scrumptious and the casual but elegant dining experience was one I hope to have again. Perfect place for an intimate gathering!
