...so why would you screw it up by going anywhere else? The prices can't be beat, the service can't be beat, and neither can the food. The serving size is a bargain for the money, but unlike at an American diner it's actually reasonable to...More

You will have fun eating here. Not far from Metro station and just off of La 70. Owners are a fun happy American couple with wife's mom a Colombiana. Homemade breakfast sausage is great and so is everything else. Good food and good fun atmosphere.

Really nice place if you want a brake from the colombian breakfast, this american couple makes amazing pancakes, eggs and bacon to very fair prices! The woman is very friendly, makes you feel at home, and refills your cofee as many times as you want.

Waited for an hour for my sandwich, had to watch other people getting their food, who came half an hour after me. When my BLT sandwich finally came the bread was very dry, it had very little bacon on it... very dissapointing.
