Instead of waiting in a long line at the restaurant next door we decided to try the dutch cuisine of The cafe Plaza. The coffee, orange juice, dutch pancake a d Belgium waffles were awesome. Great service and there was no waiting. WOW! A win for us.

We walked by this restaurant several times in the Renaissance Marketplace and in fact headed to the place next door for breakfast, despite Carlo's best efforts to entice us into Café The Plaza. Big mistake on our part!
Next day, we went in, mainly because of the friendliness of Carlo, and had the best breakfast we ever had during our 8 day stay. We went back several times after this and were never disappointed
Service was prompt and friendly and Carlo talked to us like an old friend. I strongly recommend this terrific place. There are several other restaurants owned by this group and unfortunately, we ran out of time. I have to think these places would have offered the same courteous service and excellent food.

We ate here since there was a small line at the Dutch pancake place and the salesman outside was encouraging us to go in.This place capitalizes on the Belgian place next door being so busy. The guy gets people to come in here. He even gets people in and they think they are going to the other restaurant.
The food was just ok. The rest of the days we just walked right past and went to the Belgian Pancake House. Much better there and about the same price. This place tries to make the Belgian pancakes too but it's not the same. I wouldn't eat breakfast here again when the other place is right next door.

We went here for dinner one night and breakfast two days later. Service was horrible and food was average at best. Wouldn't recommend.
