We waked around and decided on this place because of the all day breakfast menu; we had Mangu (a domincan dish made from green plantaine); im dominican and I can confirm the Mangu was excellent; the waitress was very nice and asked detailed questions to get our food just right, she even offered very attractive options. We loved it so... More

It was no big deal food and prices weren't that great. Atmosphere was fine, just part of a strip along Juan Dolio that feels tired. Bar food and some sea food. Fine not memorable.

Well after reading in Lonely Plant we thought we would give this restaurant a try. Darn disappointing I had a cheese burger $260 peso and the meat was not good it had hard grizzle throughout. My husband had a fish sandwich which was ok but for $350 peso it is only the sandwich! We had to pay extra for the... More

Pancakes with eggs, bacon,toast and coffee...outstanding value. Real french fries. Full menu....all good. Right in the centre of the action. Guilia is multi-lingual and if you want any info on the area....she has it! Just a really nice feel to the place.

On more than one occasion this place's sole server has made homophobic comments in Spanish and gossiped about patrons right in front of me. She's also messed up orders, brought out drinks that weren't asked for, and hanged about instead of actually doing her job. The food is standard and overpriced, of course, and there are regulars who sit at... More

excellent espresso,great breakfast sandwiches, but most of all ,interesting crowd and personality plus of the owners, a charming italian welch woman married to a fascinating israeli husband, this open air cafe serves an interesting mix of ex-pats and vacationers, with news and sports visible on the tv's .great ,atmospheric breakfast destination.
