“Cozy corner cafe with an amazing menu!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 2, 2014

We breakfasted here after an outdoor concert the night before downtown. We loved the Swedish Pancake Balls(with strawberry) and the coffee. Most of the seating is outdoors in the Victorian Village neighborhood close to downtown. What a delightful change from an average breakfast place.

“Mexican Breakfast Yum!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 8, 2014

Even though you usually have to wait in line, it's worth it! You order at the counter then they deliver your food to the table. My favorites are the Original Latin Pancake Balls and Breakfast Tacos!!!

“Yum!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 28, 2014 via mobile

We went here with a group of friends. This place is a gem. The food was excellent packed with great flavor. If you are looking for a great sandwich or breakfast all day long this is the place. The only thing missing was waiters/waitresses and menus for the table. You order at the register off a menu board, pay, then take a number. I will definitely visit again.

“Local, creative flavors, incredible service!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 28, 2014 via mobile

We stopped by on Memorial Day for lunch and the place was packed! The menu had interesting gourmet flavor combinations that intrigued, and I settled on a Mole BLT. Bad news, they were out of bacon! Which is an ingredient that stars in many of their popular dishes. The owner explained that they were unable to receive in their order on the holiday, and had recently had a feature in the newspaper causing business to boom. She recommended alternatives, which were nothing short of fantastic, and promptly gave us bottled water while we waited. In addition, she was going around to all the customers offering free Italian Ice for the wait. I would definitely go back again!
