We had 8 people in our party and went for Sunday brunch. The food was really good -- especially the avena de coco (coconut oatmeal). One person in our party went through the buffet and they have ready-to-order omelettes. Very good.

My only complaint is that we had to wait a very very long time to get our check because their computer was down. We were told the computer couldn't be fixed until Monday but I felt they should have had a backup -- an old fashioned calculator. Or -- used their cell phone calculators.

Service was really good too!

I love Nellie's food and atmosphere any time, but Sunday morning is especially good and fun. There's a buffet which has a nice mix of Puerto Rican food (flan), and U.S.-food, such as oatmeal, fruit, pancakes, meat, etc. The chef will whip up an omlette to suit your taste. Lunches are also good and tasty. And the price is right!

I went for the Sunday brunch, which I had already heard about from friends at work. Amazing, I found the place clean, the waitstaff attentive and the food GREAT. An all you can eat brich with a Puerto Rican flavor-with vegetarian friendly dishes, an amazing coconut oatmeal and made to order omelets for a very good price.

I love the food; the breakfasts are so filling; sometimes I haven't eaten again all day. The food is healthy. The lunch is really good - salad, typical Puerto Rican food and specials. The Sunday brunch with the coconut oatmeal and endless other items is so good. And, it's all so reasonable! Sometimes I find Puerto Rican food, although delicious, is not too healthy since it's fried. Here, health conscious cooks ensure the food is good and healthy. A real find. I wish it was open for dinner.
