Gaia is the Greek version of Mother Earth, and that's who Patrick Mangold-White and Jon Edwards were channeling when they opened their charming eatery in 2006, transforming an old bungalow on South Pearl Street into a warm, welcoming haven with a lush garden and patio outside. This breakfast-and-lunch spot quickly attracted a legion of fans with a menu filled with salads, sandwiches, a few variations on baked eggs and a substantial inventory of crepes, both savory and sweet. Many of the ingredients for these dishes are local, some even grown in the restaurant's backyard garden. Meals at this garden spot are like the Victorian setting: not retro, but timeless.
