“Small place but good people”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 13, 2012

The place was very small and when we visited was jam packed! My only problem was their cooling! Not enough it was getting very hot even with the fans turned on. Omellets we ordered were not bad. Staff was friendly and attentive.

“Good breakfast”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 27, 2012

Clean old restaurant. The waitress was fast and pleasant. Coffee was great and offered repeatedly. Locals obviously love this place and we agree. Food was prepared fast and was delicious. Would go back again.

“surprisingly great breakfast.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 12, 2012

Small place if you go too fast you may missed it. Staff is friendly very good service. Had breakfast only. Good selection from traditional american to mexican style breakfast. Healthy selections too. They would make about anything you want. Steak and eggs were my favorite.
Wife eats healthier but enjoyed oatmeal and fresh fruit. heard the fajitas are great there a must to
try at lunch. Alot the locals go there, not well known with the tourist.

“Trust the Locals!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 1, 2012

Great breakfast location. The migas, the omelettes, the pancakes..it's all good. Portions are nicely sized (big but not overwhelming) and you feel like you got a lot for a modest price. Seating area is relatively small but even if you have to wait a little bit, it doesn't take long to get a table. It is on the far north side of the island but worth the walk or drive. It is always a good sign when there are local residents there as paying customers and the one's we talked with say this is the best on the island. We believe them!
