Been here several times for breakfast and this place has never disappointed me. The Bloody Mary's and coffee drinks are excellent. The food is delicious and the portions are filling. Arrive early for breakfast or be prepared to wait. This place fills up fast.

Coffee was great, I had a mocha and spouse had con leche. I had chorizo omelette which was delicious and spouse had steak torta, very good. Both of our sides of potatoes were cold which was disappointing. Probably wouldn't go back, but enjoyed atmosphere.
