We went here twice for their tapas special night (buy one, get one free) and once for the all-you-can-eat taco night. It was affordable and delicious every time. We especially liked the white bean hummus, fried cheese (like a fried cheese stick, but made with local cheese and not Sysco stuff), fried hearts of palm, and olive tapenade. We stopped in for drinks several other times, too. Every member of the staff was super friendly and attentive. Also, they had a Daily Diver Special for lunch (Tues.-Sat?) for $5 US that always looked really good; we just never made it. Next vacation.

Thank you for the great words! Thank you for noticing our "from scratch" items vs. the "Sysco stuff" (Wendy, 6 yrs and I, 10 yrs, both work for Sysco in between our life's restaurant work). We will continue to work hand at hand crafting all that we do. See you next time you are on the island!

Thanks for the great words! As owners we (Wendy and Joe) try to always be around keeping focus on serving our customers. It's a ton of fun and the view from our office is not too bad either. See you next time on the island.

Good breakfast. Great coffee. Right Price. Super Service. Everything came hot and fresh just like I ordered. Coffee cup was filled as soon as I was finished. I would go back or send a friend.

We had fish tacos and the beef tostadas and both were wonderful. Service was good. It's laid back and a relaxing place to eat.

We went to BV on our very last day/last hours of our trip and had a delightful lunch. The food was outstanding and the service was great. Great location too - right in the middle of West End, with fans blowing and a nice breeze during the heat of the day. Will definitely visit again next time.
