I went for breakfast while on a visit to Lawrence. It's not a fancy place, but has a very comfortable feel to it. Everything on the menu sounded delicious, with a variety of items that should appeal to just about anyone. The waitress was very friendly and clearly knew her stuff. Much of the... read more

Unique foods like arepas and the best green chile sauce. Find your arepa and get a side of green chile. Pancakes and normal breakfast is available.

Had brunch at this place on a Wednesday the 17th of June, were very few people in the resturant, my waiter was GREAT. Pancakes, their short stack (2) were the size of an average dinner plate, very thick and hearty. One scrambled egg was as much as three in some places, ham was good. I didn't eat again until that...

Love the international/South American menu, especially for breakfast. Great service and open early on Sundays.

One of many atmospheric local hangouts on Lawrence's Massachusetts Street. I had the Kansas vegetable pressed sandwich. This is a great sandwich with creamy goat cheese. I appreciate that they give you tons of choices for the side that comes with your sandwich: soup, green salad, breakfast potatoes, black bean salad, etc. etc. The HVAC of the building doesn't seem...

My wife and I dined here for breakfast and each ordered the special, Eggs Benedict. The wait was a little on the long side, but they were rather busy. This had to be one of the most disappointing Eggs Benedicts I have ever had. There was no Canadian Bacon, instead there was tomato and avocado. The tomato was 5 weeks... More

Fun and colorful surroundings, flags of many countries adorn the ceiling, to match up with foods of the world. It is also very vegetarian friendly. This is a relaxing place for breakfast or lunch. We went for brunch. My Cuban sandwich was very tasty with thick pieces of pork and ham. The mustard and pickle a classic complement on thin... More

This is kind of a hippy place, but the food is great, and love that it is locally sourced when possible. I have had lunch here twice and was good both times.Very friendly staff and nice variety of healthy meals. If you are looking for a good restaurant, that is not one of the many chains that are infiltrating Mass... More

I can't believe I have to write a review like this in my hometown. We visited at noon on a Friday. There were still empty tables. Waited over 30 minutes with one visit from the water. Took our order within 10 minutes, brought water. We finally left without any trace of food or drinks. Even after 2 tables who were... More

I really enjoyed this place, the atmosphere really did represent what Global was. They have different flags on the ceiling which I appreciated (I like to travel quite a bit). There was a lot of variety representing different styles of food. I had the bacon, avocado, Monterrey cheese omelet, and was it delicious! The bacon was thick cut and definitely... More
