Anyone been to the new Home?

Apparently the new Home at Fletcher/Riverside in Silverlake is open for business. I went to the other one shortly after they opened, and while I recall that the food was decent enough, the service/attitude has kept me away for the several years since.
I've heard that they ironed out those issues, and the new space is looking pretty cute and (dare i say) homey. I am already slightly annoyed at the compulsory valet parking in their lot, but I want to like it since it is so darn convenient.
Who has an opinion?
Convenient and cute, indeed. And we only live a few blocks away so believe me we WANT SO MUCH to like it. But after breakfast there on Saturday it's unlikely we'll be back except in a pinch -- this is unimaginative food, served clumsily. To be fair, like all greasy spoons the bussers did a great job -- but the servers were non-existent. How do you pass an empty coffee cup, at breakfast, on the weekend, not once, not twice, but three times?
Our conclusion -- this place is Perkins, without the service.
At this price and for this type of food, stick with the Astro, unless you want booze.
