“Can't miss, won't miss”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2013

The minute we walked into this small and extremely clean family run establishment we knew we had found our S. Padre GO TO place for coffee, breakfast and lunch. The service is excellent, very accommodating and attentive. (I can imagine the place gets pretty packed in high season though, so be patient).
The second time we stopped in it was apparent they recognized us. We could tell from the other customer greetings that they took special care to remember their clientele, there were many "usual" customers.
Ours is a family of five and we had breakfast both days. Everyone loved what they ate. There were healthy options and they were helpful with dietary restrictions, offering reasonable substitutions. And did I mention clean? You can just tell the pride they have in their place.
Unfortunately, we learned about it late in our stay or we would have had more meals. They are not open for dinner, however. But just as well - We need some diversity.
They did have a bar area and wines visible, but we did not partake during this trip. We will return.

“Super place!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2013

Excellent coffee. I had the iced coffee and even the ice cubes were made of coffee. Great service, too. It's a must if you like a good breakfast on the island.

“Great food and great service!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 27, 2013

Small little shop only open until 2pm everyday. Extremely nice staff with simple and delicious meals. Drinks are a bit overpriced, but it being a "mom and pop shop" it only makes sense.

“Nice but over priced”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed May 21, 2013

Nice place to hang out however it is overpriced. $12.00 for a turkey sandwich and bag of chips hurt my impression

“Good service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 17, 2013 via mobile

The breakfast was good, the apple wheat pancake was more like a flat muffin, it was very tasty...cinnamon coffee was a good way to start the day, and the take home cup was a nice surprise.
