We had a lovely breakfast on the outdoor patio. The coffee was excellent and my dish, the Machaca, which consisted of eggs mixed with a variety of veggies and pepper jack cheese, was absolutely delicious.

Yummy latin and caribbean food in a cute area. Brunch and dinner are both good. I appreciate that they have good coffee in the morning. The food is really well done and fresh tasting. Atmosphere is bohemian but not pretentious.
