So the portions were small and the cost is about $10 for a breakfast plate. However, the food was really good and I went back multiple times during my stay in Leland.

A must try is the Costa Rican style black beans and rice, either with the eggs or as a burrito. Both are delicious and accompanied by avocado - major yum factor!

Great breakfast sandwiches, pancakes and fresh fruit here at this diner-type place. You order at the counter, and then the staff brings your food to the table. We were very happy with our food. Good service. Head's up ... cash only here.

Nice place for breakfast , but hostess needs a little refresher. Food was good and price was good. Very busy and pretty slow. The rain outside overwhelmed them.
