"B"...what is it?

While driving through Roncesvalles village I noticed a new storefront, black with a large "B" above the door. I didn't get a good look at it as I was driving, and haven't had a chance to stop by there as yet.
But just curious if anyone has been, and what it is like.
I am assuming that it is a restaurant, as it was previously occupied by a middle eastern place before (if memory serves...)
I mentioned this in the 'Roncesvalles Brunch' thread.
'B' opened about 2 months ago. It's mainly a brunch place and it's drawing a pretty good weekend morning crowd. I've been twice so far:
The 'B' eggs benny is pretty good: Served on a tea biscuit, decent hollandaise, crispy bacon rather than ham (which made it a little tough to cut through). Not the best benny in the area, but promising.
The confusingly-named Apple and Duck Sausage omlette was less successful. Bland, small sausage pieces and raw slices of green apple wrapped in egg. Note to 'B': saute that apple a bit.
The place is a boon to a part of the neighborhood that needs a makeover in a big way. Hopefully the new Starbucks across the street will draw more diners.
