The shady patio is lovely. I had a frappucchino and amazing fresh strawberry cheesecake (a billion times better than at Ban Ban!) for only 3.50$. The waiters were super friendly. Very recommended!

I came here for breakfast and sat in the inside patio. Breakfast was cheap but I noticed there was dog poop on the soil near the wall. Maybe it was cat poop or my eyes were playing tricks on me. But it was hard for me to enjoy the meal especially when trying to eat refried beans. I recommend sitting... More

The café is stocked with interesting art and artifacts and is lovely. Their food is average and a bit over priced, but it is very close to Casa Verde. I don't recommend wandering too far at night in Santa Ana.

I simply got a smoothie and it was pretty runny .. I guess in El Salvador they blend the milk and fruit and then add in ice, but the ice doesn't get blended . Husband got a fruit plate but the fruit seemed old and was a small plate for $4

Im usually not the one, who give bad comments, but, in this case, its a joke, that a place, witch called itself "Expression Cafe", and try to be looking cool, "cultural", and international, dosent even have a coffee machine... To the story: I was really disappointed from this Expression Cultural Cafe... I went there today, i thought, after all that... More

We arrived at 5:15pm, planning on just having a drink, but ended up staying for food too. We had the quesadilla, tacos and chips, followed by delicious oreo cheesecake and lime pie - yum! Best of all, the staff were very attentive and we left promptly at 6pm as they closed, couldn't have asked for a more efficient service! The... More

The decor is lovely and quite unique which is fun in itself, however, the food was just ok. The staff were lovely, however, like most other restaurants you wait quite a while to be greeted, have your order taken, and often your food arrives before your drink. Whatever, all good. However, as this place was rated #1 in Santa Ana,... More

The cafe is owned by the husband of Rosie, who owns Villas Napoli. We just had a quick lunch there and it was good and fresh. A man at the door kept an eye on our rental car while we ate.
