Thought this restaurant was fantastic and one of the best restaurants I have been at in a while. The food was very intriguing and tasty. The atmosphere was just perfect! Quaint, simple and beautiful. Definitely will be returning to try the other tasty treats on the menu!

I've eaten there 2 times and both times the food was fantastic. I've taken 5 friends and they all agreed the food was great. So far I've tried the Burger, the pulled pork sandwich, the tempura, and the soups. There's some pretty interesting flavors going on. The ingredients are locally sourced as are the beers.
This is one of the best restaurants that I've tried in a while. Great prices and great food.

I highly recommend checking out their Brunch menu which offers some serious bang for your buck. We're talking $11 for smoked salmon eggs benedict with side salad and perfectly roasted root vegetables (no crusty ol' home fries for once) . What's doubly shocking is that it's never busy.

My wife and I were thoroughly impressed with our recent experience at Habits. It was a Thursday night and we were pleasantly surprised to find out they have live jazz every Thursday, which was a great accompaniment to our meal. We ended up staying for a while afterwards and were entertained with great music.

We were in a casual mood, so I ordered the "Burger" and my wife ordered the Pulled Pork. Far from what you think of as a burger, this was a work of art; cooked to perfection with a tasty topping of smoked tomato, bacon and onion slivers cooked to a delicious crunchy texture. That with a gourmet sauce and a side of excellent fries made it something special. I also ordered a Beaus draft to go along with it which was cold and refreshing.

The pulled pork was fabulous and was served on a calabrese style bread. My wife said it was the best she had ever tasted and I agree.

We were happy to discover Habits. The atmosphere is warm and inviting, the service was excellent and the live music added a touch of class to our evening out.

So far we have visited this restaurant twice and both times an unforgettable meal. So much so that we have invited friends here this weekend for brunch because we feel others HAVE to try it!! Our first visit was a pulled pork sandwich which may be the best EVER and a light and lovely fish on top of salad. Sadly the salad was removed from the menu. Last weekend my boyfriend had the grilled romaine hearts with an egg and bacon that was light and so different! The owner accommodated me without hesitation and substituted their unreal pulled pork for the bacon on their eggs Benedict. The result was to die for! I strongly recommend it. Prices are exceptional as well $9 to $12 for a gourmet brunch. This restaurant is at the end of our street and is quickly becoming a staple for us. Hopefully it will be around for years to come because they so deserve it !

We've been 2 or 3 times as well, and can echo everyone's comments about the quality of the food.

I think the interior decoration needs some re-tooling, it's nice but not very inviting or comfortable.

They're closed for renovations right now, I hope they re-open soon with a new look that complements the quality of the food.

Seems your prayers have been answered. My husband and I were at Bicycle Couture a couple of weeks ago and poked our heads into Habits afterward out of curiosity. They really need to change their hokey signage out front, as it belies the lovely and sophisticated interior! What we also appreciated was the indoor/outdoor seating overlooking the front patio, as it's nice to be able to enjoy a pint on summer's day without getting cooked by the blazing sun (or soaked by the rain). The menu sounds delicious, so we've made a point of checking it out the next time we get a sitter. I hope they're getting the attention they deserve!

This place is a joke....who writes these comments? Staff?
Do not go to this place....ever.....ever....the woman/owner is like a creepy prison guard, so very uncomfortable.
What is it....a sports bar? Pub? Live music venue?Go to Brass Taps down the street....Dave knows what a pub is suppose to be.
