Perfect little spot for a great breakfast. The ricotta pancakes and french toast with Canadian maple syrup are amazing. This is our favorite place for breakfast!!

This place is super small but super cute. Enjoyed a lite lunch here- shrimp tacos very good! We walked over from CPI and it was a welcome respite from the heat!

Almost didn't go because it closed at 3:00-- so glad we drove by and noticed it was open. Carnitas were fantastic, as was the fried chicken on potato waffle. I'll be back Saturday, or maybe tomorrow.

The three of us had lunch there twice. Always say " if the locals are there, the food must be good". The food and service was fantastic. The energy felt great. Don't miss out on a terrific place.
