A great little breakfast place we love their burritos. And their baked goods. Be sure you place your order and then sit down then they bring the food to your table

I've been here twice. Cute environs. Friendly staff. Both times they've been out of main entree items. This time after I paid, they told me they were out of kebabs and tried to talk me into salad instead. Double check before ordering.

Went in here a couple times to do work on my computer. I was in during the afternoon so didn't have a full meal, but menu items seemed interesting. The main thing I noticed here was the service. I'm not sure if it was the...More
