    The arepas! Yum yum yum. Get the tuna arepa. You have to order two per order, so if you're unsure of the second option, then just get two tuna arepas! 🐟

    Nice coffee shop. Cheap coffee. Nice staff. Open later than love coffee across the street, but not as charming. Wifi and outlets solid.

    The arepas are to die for. SO good. The lattes are also delicious. They take a long time though, especially if you want something quick to go.
