    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!

    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.

    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!

    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...

    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.

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

    if you want a good filling yet light lunch go for the shrimp roll sandwich...super tasty & not heavy or too filling.
