Bumble Ratings and Reviews
Food was delicious! The organic fruit drink was tasty but pricey. We would like to return for a cocktail and/or dessert or to linger - we didn't have a lot of time unfortunately. However, we did get a huge chocolate chip cookie to take with us - this was a good decision - it was really good.
This was a great experience for us as parents of a 1 year old and 3 year old. We were able to send our kids to the playroom (where they even got a hot meal) while we had our dinner in peace but could still spot them. Some might consider the food simple but it was cooked well, tasted great, and was attractive to look at. I will give admit that if you don't like garlic, this may not be the place for you. The sugar on the top of the creme brulee should have been a little more caramelized, but we were having such a good time that it didn't matter. We'll be back when they do it again.
Ordered Sweet Tooth, a brioche soaked in maple syrup with slices of bananas. Surprisingly the left over for next day was just as good and fresh as eaten in the restaurant. Other family members had the quiche and raved about the freshness of ingredients. Inside was cooked just right. Kid's meal inviting and served in good bite sizes. A bit disappointed couldn't get a cappuccino topped with the bear face design as they advertised. Got a heart instead which the grand kids wowed. A decent place to have good organic food.
Nice staff but slow service even though the restaurant was not full - plenty of open tables.
The menu has changed since previous owners. Food is so so. Kids did not like the gluten free pasta or mac n cheese. There is no alternative pasta option.
The prices are expensive for what the food quality is.
Food: Not too bad. Large portions. I got the breakfast scramble and there was a good tablespoon or two of unappetizing brown liquid at the bottom of the bowl? Also got a Soy Vanilla Latte and that was amazing 5/5 would recommend!
Noise Level/Ambience: Two words. CRYING. TODDLERS. The noise was honestly quite annoying as I was trying to catch up with a friend over Sunday brunch (10:30AM). If you plan on going I recommend sitting on the adult-only patio.
3/5, would go back for the coffee at a better time during the school week.
Good-size portions of tasty food. Went for brunch. Have been here many times before for lunch, but this was the first time for brunch. Menu is somewhat limited but everything is good. Ambience is nice and homey (this restaurant is a repurposed old bungaow home), but it can get a little stuffy on warm days. This place caters to families with kids so be prepared to have little ones come up to you and say Hi. The service is fine, a little stretched, but very nice people. We will return.
I went at 11am on a Sunday. The morning scramble was watery (literally) and bland. The home fries were dried out and not hot. They were clearly made en masse and sitting for a while. My friend's sandwich wasn't on toast as it was on previous visits. Instead it was pretty greasy on the bun and messy to eat.
We were also deliberately seated on the adult patio, but a small child was seated mid-way through our meal and he proceeded to play on an iPhone with no headphones. I'm not trying to tell anyone how to parent, but a place that offers adults only seating to limit it accordingly.
I will not be going back.
One of the waitress was NOT cooperative at all. My 4 year old daughter was scared of the huge heater and literally stared crying so wanted to sit at a table a bit far from the heater where only 3 people can sit. Since we were 2 adults and 2 kids I asked for getting the table by putting 2 more chairs but she didn't allow us to sit there. I don't understand because 2 kids are not going to block anywhere!!! So stubborn and ridiculously poor service/accommodation. SO disappointed today!
Way too loud and busy with kids. Not a great choice for Brunch, especially if you want Mimosas. Bottomless mimosas you have to have same juice for whole table which was silly. Service was good, staff friendly. But again, way too loud and too many kids for a nice brunch.
ordered a cappuccino it was just colored water, sent it back came the same, horrible, i could not drink it. My daughter got cheese pasta, it was a sad looking thing she didn't even touch it. I hd bagel and lox, the cream cheese was horrible, rest was ok. these guys do not seem to get it together after a couple of years of going bad bad bad
Loved the wholesome menu, especially the GF waffles or pancakes (?) option! The food was really lovely and the staff really nice. The space was great too and we had the option of being the conservatory away from the babies and families for some peace and quiet but it was too cold in there for us. Still, being surrounded by families didn't bother us and it was really great to be able to eat wholesome great food. Great coffee too which I find lacking in the Bay Area!
Went here for Sunday brunch and to celebrate my birthday. It was nice to have a play area for my toddler son. He really enjoyed himself and I got to eat m brunch without him climbing all over me. He absolutely loved the sand box. Service was great - the manager on duty made sure we were comfortable and warm since we were sitting outside. But there was an outdoor heater so it was good. My grandmother who is elderly was a little cold. Mimosas were great 😊
Will not be returning anytime soon.
Front of house has deteriorated significantly since our last visit (3-4 months ago). Made reservation online as usual, and got there on time. Checked in at hostess desk, and were told someone would be with us "in a couple of minutes".
About five minutes later, the conversation is taken over by a gentleman (FOH manager?) who says they only have an outside table available. It is December, it's chilly outside, we're there with small kids. The offered table is in a corner, under and behind a tree. I ask whether there's heating, and he says "there's a heater there..." (which is EXACTLY behind the tree providing no coverage whatsoever to the table in question) "...but we can't get it any closer because it would be a fire hazard". Bottomline: there's only an unheated table in a far corner, and it is made clear we can take it or leave it. The conversation is punctuated by "Opentable assigned you an outside table", "We have a private event so space is limited", "We tried to reach you but could not". NOTE: I received no messages and would have been perfectly happy to cancel and go elsewhere.
At this point, the kids are hungry so we take the table. I'm told "go ahead and sit down, someone will be with you shortly". The hostess we first checked in with promptly brings us a high chair as requested and menus (thanks!). No sign of waitstaff. After 10-15 minutes of waiting, my husband walks back to the host table and checks in again with the gentleman. A few minutes AFTER THAT, waitstaff puts in a first appearance. We immediately place orders for food and drinks. It's freezing at the table, so we're hoping at least the hot drinks show up first. Well. At 11:20, 50 minutes after reservation time, we receive, in the following order:
- Kids' food
- Adult food
- Hot drinks
We ate and left. The food itself was very good, as usual. Not worth the obstacle course to get to it, though.
Our party of 4 received a cold welcome upon arriving at Bumble - a birthday brunch for my 65 yr old mother. I was told our reservation could only be accommodated outside as other parties had booked tables inside - not an option on Opentable. Overall the restaurant was less than half full when we arrived and 3/4 full when we departed. Heaters are provided on the patio but they do little to warm guests feet. The food - avocado toast, the burger and veggie panini - was bland and our drinks were forgotten until the end of the meal. Disappointing and do not recommend.
I enjoyed the ambiance, the food was yummy but it took an extremely long time to get initial service. Even after we ordered food, it took a long time. We were in no rush so we didn't mind but when they forgot the bacon to my friends order it took 30 minutes to get side order of bacon... by then he was done eating his meal. The worst part was the check, we waited a good 45 minutes for the check and our plates were untouched for an hour. The food was good and the waitress was friendly but the service was very slow.
The restaurant is cozy and comfortable, separated into different sections for privacy. Food was delicious, coffee was a little weak, however, they were very understaffed on the morning we visited. Service was slow and our waitress did not pay attention to the section we were in, we ended up taking the bill to the cashier in front as we couldn't even wave down the waiter. Other than that, the environment is pleasant and the brunch is good.
Had brunch with my kids, good selection, great play area, kids had lots of fun and staff there was great.
Miserable wait staff, lackluster attitude and not engaging, if I spend good money for good food, I'd like the service to be good too, from reception to payment. Either train them to carry a different attitude or staff turnover will be high because they don't get good tips.
Worth a visit as a large group where kids can play and partners can relax
