Inattentive server, joke of a manager, & cold food. If you have two hours to kill for a simple breakfast, go for it! The hippie-lifestyle does not lend itself well into the service industry...
We went there for my birthday. The look the waitress gave us as we ordered our third drink suggested she thought it must have been my 21st birthday (it was 28(! This was my 3rd time at CB's, and the service was just as stuffy as the first two times. Our server was much more attentive to the "older" couple seated next to us.
As for the food... the first word that comes to mind is BLAND. The penne pasta with pesto was doused in a watery lemon-grass sauce, causing all the pesto to fall off. The mango cake was interesting-- far too fragrant! It tasted like the scent of a urinal cake.
I agree with some previous reviews in terms of price. Far overpriced for what you receive. I'm not sure if this is "American" vegetarian, as it seems to be watered down, flavorless veggie fare geared towards carnivores. Skip CB & go get Indian food instead!
Service can be a little spotty, but once the food arrives it doesn't really matter. They have carry-out as well. By far the best vegetarian restaurant in St. Paul.
