    Really good Cuban sammich. Mustard could be spicier, but the pickles are crisp, sweet, and delicious. The fruit cup side was awesome too: raspberries, blueberries, strawberries, and peaches!

    Great menu for breakfast and dinner! I loved the omelette and the tacos. No hard liquor, but a GREAT front patio for people watching and a backyard patio that is more private. Love it!

    Great sandwiches and fresh potato chips make this one of the best lunch spots on Cathedral Hill. Dinnertime switches from counter to table service. To-go orders are fast!

    Dinner here on Valentine's Day - amazing! My favorite for lunch is the roasted mushrooms with Brie on ciabatta (I sub Swiss for Brie) & a slice of tres leches cake.

    This place does a great brunch on the weekends. The Brioche French Toast is so good. Also who can not resist a $3 Mimosa during brunch.

    Go with a friend and share a couple of sammies. Don't forget to order a pot pickles. And make sure you try a chocolate-dipped coconut macaroon. Fantastic!

    You probably didn't come here for the desserts, but if you leave without one you are truly lost my friend. A luscious piece of cake beats braised kale every time...

    You can get most sandwiches as a salad... My favorite is the turkey - it comes with avocado, chickpeas, and their cilantro vinaigrette.

    If you order a mimosa with brunch, it's only $1.50 - cheaper than a soft drink at most places!
