“Great place for coffee lovers with excellent food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 23, 2013 via mobile

I love coffee and this place has an excellent selection. The menu is small but fantastic. We had two different frittatas for brunch and both were excellent with generous portions. Service was friendly and accommodating.

“Great breakfast, served until 3 pm”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 20, 2012

La Taza was recommended as a place to get good vegetarian food, so we tried the vegetarian breakfast burrito, which was served with fresh fruit, for a very reasonable $6.25. The burrito, which contained eggs, cheese, avocado, onions, sweet peppers, and a bit of spicy heat, was freshly made and was hot when served. It was a delicious bargan for the price.

“Extremely slow food service”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed September 11, 2012

We visited here yesterday, 9/10/12 and were very unhappy with a 45 minute wait to get 4 cold sandwiches and a plate of french fries. Once delivered, everything was good but the wait really was unreasonable as there were maybe 3 other tables occupied at 2PM. If you have ample time, it would be okay to lounge there as it is very casual. College atmosphere.

“Be prepared to chill”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 29, 2012

Good basic Guatemalan breakfast and Cuban sandwiches. Friendly service. Great coffee. When we were there, just one person was in the kitchen. He did a great job with the food, but it took a while to get our meals. (We didn't mind.) It seems to be a place where locals like to drink coffee and stay for a while.

“Good breakfast- great coffee!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 26, 2012

On our mission to find the perfect breakfast place in C'ville we came across La Taza, first time we came for coffee and came back fro breakfast, we enjoyed the casual and unique decor and the food was good too- but the coffee was great- service just average...
