We came here for breakfast. It was really good. The agave jam they serve with their fried jacks is really awesome! The daughter of the owner hung out with us the whole time and entertained us. She was super cute.

The food was very fresh and the customer service was good. I tried a pasta with shrimp (can't remember the name). But it was absolutely delicious. The strawberry cheesecake was also yummy!
