Great meal with wonderful service for early dinner before a Stars game. Escargot was superb as a starter. Everyone raved about their entrees. Cream Brulee for dessert topped it off. Recommend Mercat for dinner!

We grabbed a few breakfast burritos to go and they were so good that we went back the next day and had more. I particularly liked the egg and cheese ones. Good price and they are ready made and kept warm on the griddle.

Excellent breakfast and service. I had the croque madam and my husband the omelette. Our server brought us a side of salsa that was spicy and perfect. We will try to recreate it at home. Great coffee.
