The title pretty much says it all. Service was pretty good, with only one lapse. Kudos to whomever torched my creme brûlée, which was excellent.

Not at all what I expected - a delicious treat on a rainy night. Wonderful atmosphere, hip, eclectic and "artsy", an international feel, with modern music in the background. Waiter was knowledgeable, friendly, and helpful. They have a full wine list with a wide selection....More

Directly across from the Texas Tech campus, this is a nice restaurant where we stopped for Brunch en route to Santa Fe. The French toast was super light and airy, and the coconut pancakes were fantastic too. Coffee was delicious and plentiful. Service was attentive.
