Nice!

Stopped in for a late lunch....place was packed and shared a table with another couple. One guy waiting all the tables....he was swamped but did a good job. All food was very good, smoothies were also very good. Two lunches, drinks and tip were about $20. Would go again.

Visited this restaurant twice. Lunch was very slow. Three of us ordered take-out (sandwiches, salad) and it took one hour for it to be prepped, even though there were only 10 people in the restaurant. The food was very good, but this day excruciatingly slow. The sandwich was very sizable, came with fries and could have easily fed two people.... More

We had breakfast here the first morning we were in Montezuma. Service is good and the smoothies are terrific. They make a very good breakfast with reasonable prices.

Good coffee, fresh bread, homemade jam. Sounds like a winner to me. The gals here work very hard, but the service is a little slow.

This place looks like you'll get dysentery just glancing at it. So far so good tho and the food was good. It's a good location just off the beach.
