“Average food, pricey and poor service”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed May 12, 2013

We made Open Table reservations but there was no hostess so that was a waste- we seated ourselves. The service was poor- our server offered same lame excuse that much of the staff was away for Mother's Day. We had to ask multiple times for utensils/napkins. I ordered a garlic cauliflower appetizer- it was offensive!- a few small pieces of charred cauliflower served with a horrible presentation- see the attached photo. The panini was OK and the salad was OK- but this is pricey for just OK food- in my opinion comparable with Panera. I will agree with others and stick with coffee and dessert only. Go for dinner elsewhere- there are better options in Royal Palm Plaza and Mizner

“Good Coffee Option”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 21, 2013

While on vacation in Deerfield beach, my sister and I searched for a local coffee shop. This place popped up and it ended up exceeding our expectations. It is located in a little strip mall and the service was great and very friendly. We both got coffees which were excellent and breakfast- myself a breakfast wrap and my sister a sandwich. It was a much better option than a dunkin donuts! It was about a 15 minute drive from our hotel and well worth it.

“Yummy breakfast.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 6, 2013 via mobile

If you want a quiet place to have weekend breakfast this is not the place for you. However if you want a crowded café with delicious food good service a lot of people walking their dogs through the outside section. Tasty coffee great egg choices.

“Poor service and food”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed March 25, 2013

We went to Saquella Cafe for breakfast on Sunday morning. The cafe was busy but not crazy. We sat outside and waited quite a while for a server to come to our table. Our friend came a few minutes later right after we had ordered coffee. It took us awhile to find our server to order another coffee and order our food. Once we ordered our food we waited over 30 minutes and realized tables who sat down after us had already received their foods. By the time we got our breakfast both mine and my husband's dishes were cold. We found our server and told her. The manager came over and said she didn't know why the dishes weren't hot. I told her clearly the plates had been ready but had not been served quickly enough. She did not believe that. She took the plates away. They brought out new meals. My spinach and feta cheese omelette tasted weird, like the spinach was old. I didn't finish it. In general I thought the breakfast was substandard and service was very poor. We were always looking for our server and could never find her. It was a long breakfast.
