Our first visit! I loved the coffee. That is the best part of breakfast for me. Very clean , excellent presentation. Pottery dishes are beautiful. They have gluten free english muffins which were very good.
I also had yogurt with berries and granola. My hubby had the salmon Benny. It looked beautiful but the eggs were overdone and the salmon a tad dry. I tried the beet sausage which was tasty. I would go back myself but is expensive.

This is my third trip to Yellow Pear and it told me basically not to come on a Sunday again. We were asked to leave so they could flip the table. I understand as it is a small restaurant but I think we need more than an hour. On a Sunday. However, the food was great altho' they could have been more generous with the tiny sliver of banana bread on our plate. The service was fast but I could tell they wanted us to leave even before we'd been there an hour and that was irritating. I spent $30 so it's not cheap and therefore it would be nice to be able to relax and chat and not feel like we have to get up and go as soon as we've eaten. Also we were sat opposite the door and we received a chilly blast every time the door opened. I think the staff, food, décor are wonderful but I do think it's time you moved to a larger place.
