We came here for breakfast. I had the huevos rancheros and my wife had a breakfast burrito. Both were okay, the huevos rancheros lacked in flavor. The inside of the building was cold. Service was good. But for our first time, after reading a ton...More

We beat the breakfast rush by going before 10 and didn’t have to wait. Several people showed after we sat and had to wait because it’s a very small venue but worth it. I had the huevos rancheros and my husband had an omelet with...More

An intimate breakfast experience since there is only seating for a few people at a time (unless the weather permits outdoor dining, which due to the chilly mornings, it did not). The food is very good and the service is fast. It serves its purpose...More
