Just great

Very nice Restaurant/Café. My husband had best iced Mocha Coffee ever, my daughter had the most tasty freshly squeezed apple juice ever and I had very refreshing Margarita. We were being helped by a very professional waiter Stefan. I recommend this place.

Came here during a visit to SoBe last year and loved it so much we had to come back during this year's weekend getaway. It's great to sit outside on the porch having brunch drinking bloody mary's and people watch. The food, at least for breakfast, is excellent! Highly recommend their french toast! And I love the fact that you... More

I've been there twice and have been happy with the service and the food both times. We used a Groupon the second time and the service was still excellent. Our server Elizabeth, was very helpful. I was reluctant to go there since they moved from their original location but the food is still very good and very reasonable.

We went there for breakfast while staying in SOBE, we read other reviews complaining about the slow service, and in a way its true.

We went here for breakfast twice while staying at the Lowe's which is around the corner. The food was awesome! It was the best breakfast we had while staying in the area. Our server, Erik, was terrific! Super friendly & very attentive. We had the French toast which was phenomenal! The menu is very extensive so there is something for... More

My girlfriends and I found this place through TA and we are glad we did. We plan to eat breakfast here every day we are here. The food and service is awesome. Shout out to Erik for providing top notch service and making us laugh.

We stopped in for brunch and tried a few different items on the breakfast menu and all were amazing. Everything was fresh and had lots of flavor. Definitely will go back.
