Everything we got here was AMAZING. the burritos, the pancakes, the lattes, the cookies, everything. Blown away. Everything was so fresh and flavorful. Its better than the food back home in California. The owner was so nice.

Excellent smoothies - funky monkey is pure banana and peanut butter heaven... Freshly made tortillas which make all the difference to the great burritos on offer.

The food was delicious and super fresh! I had breakfast there one day, and then returned on my final day for lunch. They also take credit cards for a small fee, which was helpful because I ran out of cash.
