    Local sausage, oatmeal, and hatter breakfast are all great and available all day, everyday. French toast is always excellent, but usually on available at brunch on weekends.

    Great place for breakfast and to get some work done. Try sitting by the big front windows on a rainy day for some nice light.

    Good food, but overrun by freelancers and students who order one drink and work for hours on their laptops, exhausting their free refills. Good luck getting a table if you actually want to have lunch.

    Wish they had Tres Leches. Had the black and white cake. Very tasty and not too rich. I split one slice in half.

    The black-and-white cake is a great combination of chocolate and vanilla. From small to large sizes, great for a party.

    They are a great bakery, but not equipped to do wedding cakes. I got mine done here & was extremely disappointed with the design.

    The rancheros looks good, but it is difficult to it, and doesn't really come together.
