We stopped here for a quick breakfast before going on a hike. The place was packed as it was a holiday weekend. My boyfriend and I both had breakfast burritos which were delicious and filling. A good place to fuel for the day.

Popped in for a late lunch and had a wonderfully flavorful bowl of pumpkin curry with vegetables and brown rice, a very good (and large) Cal-Mex influenced salad, and some awesome cookies to go. We went back the next day for morning pastries. They sell...More
