This place doesn't get the reviews it deserves in the reviews. We thought the coffee drinks were excellent - like lattes in the days before Starbucks invaded the world. However, the food is the reason to go. The breakfast burritos and huevos rancheros were the best I've had in a long time. The beans in the huevos might be the best I've ever had. The burrito is made when ordered - so takes a few minutes - but worth the wait. The smoked salmon smear bagel might have had the best smoked salmon cream cheese I've had too. Someone in the kitchen knows what they are doing here!

Good drinks, good service, and good prices - this place has much to offer! We enjoyed a nice afternoon snack with drinks - we arrived after closing but the owner waived us in and we had the place to ourselves - wonderful!

Great place to stop for breakfast on the way to TSV. Wonderful coffee, granola, and oatmeal. Cozy, warm, and quick. Baked goods are very good as well.

Can't wait to get back for another Pulled Pork Burrito at this seriously funky cafe. This burrito is huge and delicious - the freshest of flour tortillas, still slightly toasty, filled with chile-laced braised pork, potatoes, big avocado chunks, and sour cream. I got my to-go cup filled with coffee, which turned out to be strong and slightly smoky, a surprise at first but potentially addictive.

Nice selection of baked goods as well as fresh (cooked) breakfast selections with an eye to healthy eating (gluten-free) etc. A charming location with the friendliest "greeter" dog I have ever met! Certain to start you day off with a smile....
