“Room for improvement”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 16, 2012

There may not be a lot of room inside during weekend brunch, but there is definitely room for improvement in the service, menu and pricing. The food can be good here, and if only the staff managed to smile and not look so put out at getting it for you, I'd be willing to give it another try.

The simplest dishes, like a green salad with some chicken on it, are way below what they should be, and the more traditional items like chicken enchiladas are swimming in too much sauce. Their prices also keep us from trying more things on the menu, but we've had our share of crab from the people we've dealt with there already.

“Some of the best breakfast you can find in Seattle”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 28, 2012

If you like mexican food, especially chilaquiles, you cannot find a better breakfast location. The plates are enormous - colorful and tasty. Their mimosas aren't huge, but they pack a punch for a breakfast drink. I usually get the margarita (fresh strawberry) and it's delicious. Don't expect amazing service- unless you are a regular - they probably won't smile too often. There is no real atmosphere, but the location is decent. If you are visiting the area, go here for breakfast and spend the rest of the day wandering around Ballard. You won't be disappointed.
