Nick's focuses on using local ingredients, a big plus for those trying to avoid GMO's, artificial hormones, and pesticides. A variety of healthy menu items, including organic selections, fresh produce, and multigrain bread and pancakes round out a "healthier-than-usual" breakfast menu.

The breakfast burrito and mushroom & broccoli frittata were both excellent. Nick's has no problem with any substitutions; feel free to switch out items due to allergies or personal dietary preferences.

Brunch is available from 10am-3pm. The wait is very long (first come, first serve only), so intend on getting here at opening time if you do not have time to wait. The brunch menu is small but includes many interesting selections such as Warm Lemon Poppy Streusel with Lavender Icing and Black Beans and Eggs served with tomato-chili salsa and Rustic Bread.

If visiting for dinner, you can enjoy crostini, oysters, pasta, and housemade desserts and ice cream.

Local beer and wine selections are available to complement your meal.


Waiters were professional and accommodating. Substitutions for any reason were no problem. Servers are willing to answer any questions about ingredients and cooking style. Servers were timely, considering the packed dining room.


Although the dining area is small, Nick's does a good job with the limited space. The decor is hip and trendy. The restaurant features a young crowd. The open kitchen, brick walls, and large windows gave the feeling of a big city establishment.
