You are exactly why businesses don't want to do Groupon... I have met a lot of great Groupon clients however you make it less enjoyable for us. You ordered an APPETIZER as a meal. I tried to help you and then I realized I needed...More

This can be a very busy place - but the food is fabulous!! So many exotic varieties of breakfast. Service is great. The coffee needs to have more body - I found it weak.

Thank you for your review. I appreciate your concerns about the coffee. Some rave about our coffee. If you would like something stronger please order our americano coffee.
