First time going here since new menu and redo. Was impressed with the breakfast. The plates were huge, good quality food. they served real half and half for the coffee and Dickerson Jam with the toast. Great selection of food , friendly service. Prices are average for the area. We had crepes and an egg, bacon, hashbrown and toast breakfast.

We live just south of Monroe and was always going to stop in. Did today with grandkids after a movie. As the orders came out to us in parts, the burger, wrap and fries were just ok. Although they really should salt the fries. Soup was not hot and salad was ok. Bread was over warmed so once it was cool, very hard to chew. The banana Nutella crepe was just gross!! The crepe itself was cold. Cold as if just pulled out of the fridge, so I have to believe they are made ahead of time and kept in the fridge or bought premade and refrigerated. Instead of light and fluffy, more like a sponge. The filling was a banana cream pie filling maybe made three days ago. To find any banana you just look for a black snotty mass!! Then Nutella in and on top!! Just horrible. We will never go back. I have had a banana Nutella crepe over on Telegraph in a restaraunt and it is light, fluffy, hot and served with FRESH sliced bananas. Awesome! Wish we would have gone there instead.

Unfortunately soon after we moved to Monroe, Fino's changed hands. We made it a regular stop for dinner especially when we were living in temp quarters but were surprised to see it closed one day. When it reopened, we went back hoping for teh same quality but were sadly disappointed. The quality was not the same and teh service was lacking. This had been a great place to eat but unless the current owners change the way it is running, it is not likely to be around for long.

Stopped in for breakfast, at 11:00. Not real busy, took 10 min. To bring a menu over, then another 15 to come back to get order, promised if would only be a few min. to get food. When it did arrive it was cold, strawberry jelly was orange ,.one bite it didn't taste nothing like what it should, no name brand, waited for the cream for the coffee , finally I just reached over to another booth and grabbed one, they offered to make a new breakfast, but I already had waited 40 min. No thanks, won't be back.

We frequent Fino's and love the food and service. We never once have had bad service and the owners are incredibly sweet and are very hands on with customers. Decor is very tacky and dated, definitely in need of a face lift.
