Good stuff found here folks. I wish they would stock their sweet potato burritos more often, but then again they have cold, tallboy Modelos, and banana chocolate chip muffins so who am I to complain?

We wanted a place that was on our way back into downtown and were a bit pressed for time. Nice variety and some specials. One had the quiche which was good and the other had a sandwich. They were accommodating in leaving some items off.

Everything on the menu had great appeal and making a choice was difficult, wanted to try it all. Instead of a toast option you could choose a muffin or scone, fresh baked. Their coffee was far better than most restaurants. Try them, you’ll love it!
