    The Saigon sandwich is phenomenal! Their drinks s d espresso, especially the lavender latte and the blood orange spritzer were bomb. Their tacos are great too but could use a little more meat filling.

    Had the Cowboy Casserole, a breakfast you're not gonna find many places, and an espresso. They were both great. Nice area to sit outside and serving breakfast all day is always an awesome idea.
