This place is solid. Located right off the 280 freeway near a major street, Bascom, it is open 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. What I'm trying to say is they are open right now, lol!

I'm not sure how long the Mini has been around but I've been going off and on for over twenty years. The servers are virtually all very long time employees, always a good sign, (so is Domingo, the chef).

The food is pretty standard fare coffee shop...probably more extensive then most. The prices are just right. The place is always busy and has a very regular crows of "regulars."

All of those are signs that point to quality, value and consistently and after all, what is it you want from this sort of restaurant.

Keep the coffee coming! And btw, they have excellent wifi.

Very good meals late at night. The food quality is good, prices reasonable. and service is fast. I particularly enjoy the complete family style dinners. It's as close to home cooking as you can get late night and beats Denny's and Marie Callendar's (sp?) by a mile.
