Had morning coffee here a couple of times. Busy at times so needed to wait for a seat. Good service and excellent selection of coffee and cakes. We had the pancakes which are some of the tastiest we've had. Not cheap but good quality.

Nice open air restaurant with great food! Had the Jerk Chicken sandwich and the vegetarian sandwich with a salad, large portions and very fresh. Great coffee and chocolate also!

Went there with friends for lunch on Sunday and the food was excellent. Had a strawberry salad and I think the dressing was like a chocolate one, so yummy. They serve breakfast all day I think.

A great place for breakfast; a bit pricey for us, but for regular people with a food budget, not expensive. Very good coffee and pastries and as most things in PV, convenient.

There's not a lot of breakfast places that open early so this one is a real gem. Good coffee, smoothies and egg dishes. Nice place to go after the Farmers Market on Saturday mornings.

Great coffee selection. The waffles and pancakes were very good. The fried potato plate was excellent. It’s a very western breakfast with a Caribbean influence.

Great cafe with a good selection of savoury and sweets. Excellent choice of coffee and fruit shakes. We had the pancakes with honey and they were the best I'd ever had. It can be busy which may necessitate a short wait but well worth it.

Came for lunch and enjoyed our meals! I got the veggie sandwich and my partner got the Jerk chicken sandwich. Both were good, although we wish the bread was toasted. Don’t forget to order some chocolate to go- we got a caramel and a peanut...More

My wife had the Mattwich and I had the Jerk Chicken sandwich. Both were very good. Atmosphere was good. Prices were good. Definitely a must when visiting the area. They also have a wide dessert selection. The brownies and coconut cream pie were amazing.
