Food was delicious. Plan to wait for a table no matter what time you arrive. Coffee was not good, but if you are just getting juice, you're set. Mostly organic, but not did not affect price.

This one was recommended to us by a local! I loved the atmosphere and the local color but the wait was lengthy for less than great service and a pretty ordinary breakfast. We will try somewhere else next trip..
