Locals go here for breakfast and lunch - need I say more? First prize goes to the caciola (Portuguese pulled pork stew) for lunch, served with rice and beans and a buttered fresh Portuguese roll. Basic and a treat for your taste buds.

Had Portuguese bread French toast yesterday and veggie plus egg white omelet today. Wonderful just right portion. Raisin toast was loaded with raisins. Got kale soup take out yesterday and warmed two bowls for lunch. Don't leave without taking a loaf of bread with you

Great food, friendly staff, and no frills. I had the french toast and it was delicious! Good spot for a quick breakfast before you get your day going.

The breakfast was good and prices were reasonable. They are cash only however, so make sure you don't just have plastic.
