Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

I loved this restaurant!! Everything from the delicious food, amazing high quality coffee, super friendly service, and awesome outdoor courtyard was all spectacular! I had brunch there and then went back the same night and brought my friends! Also, the owner was so friendly and...made me feel at home!More

The food is quite bland and the coffee tastes extremely bitter. The staff are lovely and the cafe itself is nice, but I wouldn’t eat or drink here again.
