Emily our host was fantastic and we had some really good coffees and refills. Freshly squeezed orange juice for the kids and all the egg dishes such as the plantation burrito, mambo, huevos rancheros and omelet pancakes were excellent! Approx $62 with tax and tips

We really enjoyed our dinner here. The DUCK QUESADILLAS are awesome. Wife had the Fish and Chips and she commented the fries were some of the best she ever had.
