Great breakfast

This restaurant came highly recommend and did not disappoint. The coffee is wonderful. The mango crepes and el tico were both favorites. We bought coffee to take home!

We went with family for lunch, ordered 4 lemonades that were so thirst quenching and delicious but we were soon disappointed when our chicken sandwiches arrived. Not bad... Just boring. Salads weren't any better. Wouldn't go back

Hi there. We are really disappointed to hear you were not overly excited by your sandwiches or salad. These are always popular and flavorful menu items and we are proud of their flavor profile. Seems like we must have had an off day and we wish you would have told us in the moment so we could offer something else.... More
