Ordered the Jamon and eggs and it came with a great trio of picante, Chipotle, and chimichurry sauces. Mixed up the perfect heat combination. Very very good chimichurry. Juice is fresh squeezed to order.lots of pastries to choose from and crepes.coffee is made to order.

We ordered coffee and had two very tasty crêpes for lunch. Really a good value for money compared with other restaurants on the island. The waiters are friendly and speak english very well. Definitely a place to go for coffee, breakfast or lunch!
