Always enjoy the experience no matter what time or what day of the week. Very attentive to the celiac diner. Have not found a menu item that I did not enjoy yet. Very personable staff and owner. Will be back soon and often.

The server Lola shared with us her favorite dishes. Wonderful Caribbean options. And non-Caribbean options, but I did not look too closely at those options. I chose one of Lola's favorites and I was not disappointed. The tostones were so good. I'm looking forward to...More

Just because they changed the name, does not make this dump any better. It is gross inside, the food is poor, the service is the worst ever!

Might be small & not look much from the outside, but Paninoteca makes great sandwiches & has awesome soups. They also have a good variety of gluten free offerings. It's become my go-to place for a sandwich on the run....

Oh dear, this place has gone downhill. I was here once before and had a breakfast waffle, and another time had the grown-up grilled cheese. Both were good. This time I had a taco craving, so I ordered the taco lunch with pork. I agree...More

Unfortunately, because the place was short a cook, everything took a long time to be brought to the table. My meal. which was their standard taco plate with corn (maize) tortillas and pork, was sadly without any real flavor. I am aware that only Mexican...More
