outstanding place for brunch that serves all of the classic American staples that you would expect with some delicious extras (especially the braised beef arepas). The coffee bar is outstanding, and per its reputation you can expect to wait a good 1hr for a table if arriving brunchtime on Saturday... read more

A casual and fun place for dinner or lunch. Visited with some work colleagues and had a casual dinner. A little load, however the place was full. Service and was on time and the food was well prepared. There was three of us for dinner, each having something very different. All of us enjoyed the meal and the portions were... More

I love the coffee and the environment! Check this place out if you have the time. Its right across the street from the hotel. 2 to 3 minute walk.

The food was excellent, servers were prompt and helpful. The only downside was the noise level. We were there in the evening, and had to shout in order to carry on a conversation, a combination of the loud music and voices of other patrons. Great location, very near our hotel.

I loved everything about this place! We ate there every single day of our stay. There is a wide variety of food options. It is not expensive and the atmosphere is diverse and laid back. Can't wait to return!

We got here a little before noon for a breakfast / lunch / brunch meal. We were sat in a sun room of sorts, it was warm when we got there and turned into a hot box when we left. We were a large party, ten people, and that was the only spot they had room for us. I loved... More

It has a large menu with items you might find at any diner in America, but with a flavor twist. I ordered the bacon cheeseburger and on the side they included a spiced mayonnaise that added a flavor zing to the meal. Also, the meal included good french fries. The three of us had different meals, and we all enjoyed... More

Enjoyed the Atmosphere with open doors and outdoor seating and a lovely blend of old and new architect. Coffee was strong and tasty. I loved the hash brown bowl with a kick, thanks to the jalapeños. My breakfast guest was all smiles with French toast. Generous portions and an expansive lunch/dinner menu to Try for a future visit. Breakfast for... More

Great food, good prices. Wait was a bit too long. But the brunch food was delicious and at the right prices so worth it.
