Generous Portions

Love this cafe which has the choice of walk up counter or across the lobby with wait staff. Menu is limited but the food is fresh, portions are large and attractively presented. Coffee is strong and hot!

A nice little cafe to have a quick breakfast or lunch in at the historic Padre located near the lobby and elevators. Very good pastry, coffee, and iced tea! Used to be the pharmacy, so they've used a play on words!

Pictures of animals on the walls and ceiling to make you chuckle and smile while eating your delicious breakfast. A little disjointed eating space, but staff all courteous and food was presented well and pretty quickly.

loud and crowded on Friday night. Reasonable prices.Not really audible from most rooms upstairs. Now--Give me one good reason why reviews have a minimum number of characters- One of the most irritating and useless rules I have ever encountered. You should be able to say what you need to, no more, no less.Fix this!

I dragged my mom here after reading the reviews on trip advisor and was overall disappointed. The staff was friendly, but the place was not very clean and had lots of flies. The food was just so-so.
