“Great Breakfast at a Great Price”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 18, 2013

This place is right next to the Hotel St. Michel in Coral Gables (Alcazar and Ponce de Leon). It is a tiny coffee shop lined with cops. That should tell you something.

The shop is located in an unassuming office building. As you enter the front door, go to your immediate left or you will miss it. The food is great. I got a big omlette, perfectly made, for under $6.00. They will make any omlette to your specifications. I rarely have gotten a Greek omlette this good. You will have to request no onions, since they are the default unless you request otherwise. My bacon and Swiss cheese omlette was just as good. There are several options for bread and they don't stuff you with hashbrowns, unless you request them. I chose the tomatoes which were fresh and perfect. This place is tomato heaven. I am fussy about my veggies and this place does not disappoint. The coffee is OK and you can go elsewhere for gourmet coffee. They do have Cuban coffee if you like that.

The service is friendly and fast. The cops are so happy with the place that they are smiling and friendly too. The place is jammed with locals. Get there early if you want a seat. You can request takeout.
