    Salads were good, flatbread took forever but was on a pre-made crust so don't know why it took so long and was only OK. Wine selection good.

    SPACE 519 | The LunchroomResponded 2 days agoHi Ginny: Thank you for taking time to leave a review, and we are glad you enjoyed the salads. I apologize, because our server should have shared with you that the flatbreads take 15-20 minutes to bake, because they are made from scratch - there is nothing pre-made. We always like to problem solve in real time and will gladly remedy any issues. We hope to have you back again soon!

    Great food for a good price, not crowded at all. Staff extremely accommodating, even let us keep our luggage in a corner so we could eat without worrying about our bags! I highly recommend the breakfast quesadillas, it says spicy which made me hesitant to order but turned out delicious (and not spicy!). Great and convenient spot to grab a bite before heading to the airport.

    A bit pricey but really good food and nice ambience and also I *love* that they allow reservations for one, if you just feel like going out alone and having a nice brunch.

    The food was really great. The pastry tray was amazing. The quesadilla (as a Texan) was delicious minus the vegan chorizo. The breakfast bowl with yogurt and fruit bowl was refreshing with the oat milk latte. Really nice if weather is good to sit in outside patio area. Low key but great food and location. Waiter was training but the rest of the hostesses were friendly and accommodating. Highly recommend

    Delightful lunch with a friend. Service was friendly, helpful and efficient but not overbearing. Avocado toast club was terrific, and the restaurant cleverly serves this with a big steak knife so you don’t have to eat it with your hands. Highly recommend! I can’t wait to return .

    We’ve been to Space 519 many times. Sunday was our first brunch experience. As usual, the staff was warm and welcoming. The brunch items we tasted were delicious. The avocado toast with poached eggs was a table favorite…an enormous portion easily shared by 4. Sparkling rosé and mimosas were delightful and beautifully presented. The stemware was spotless and we saw the server making sure each glass was perfect before pouring. We ordered the pastry basket and we’re asked if we’d like the items warmed. It’s these small touches and excellent food that make Space 519 our go to spot.

    I have the burrata every time I'm there. Instead of serving with tomatoes, they serve it with various fruits (blueberries, blackberries, gooseberries, a delicious balsamic dressing and freshly baked bread. The food, in general, is plated well which makes it all the more appealing.

    Made reservations, unfortunately missed the breakfast window by minutes, so had to readjust what we really wanted for something else. Brunch was still delicious. We each had our lattes and they were phenomenal. Service was good, food was good, I will happily return each time I visit the city!
