We certainly had high expectations but the place fell short somehow. While the molecular smoothies are spectacular, the food was just ok. The Milan Sandwich was overcooked and the Pizza should have stayed a little longer in the oven. The service was good, very friendly servers. They should do something about the flies and the music.

Open spaces. Perfect for families with kids. They have a mini kids club and play ground that will keep your children busy while you have a delicious coffee. Great food. I love the breakfasts. You can't miss it.
