    Not only an excellent brunch place, but also a damn fast one. This place has its operations down cold--a beautiful thing on a weary, rushed weekend morning. Love the Greek skillet in particular.

    Green omelette (artichokes, avocado, spinach) and a side of whole grain pancakes (they offer variety of whole grains to choose from). Wait time up to 30 minutes. No alcohol and no split checks.

    Great food!!! The Mayan Omletta is amazing. Even 2 year olds loved it. So filling. Such an inconvenience that you can't split the bill so be prepared ahead of time and it works out!! :)

    Serves an always changing menu with creative variations on breakfast and brunch dishes such as French toast and eggs benedict. I've never been disappointed eating here.

    Don't be hypnotized by the Eggs Florentine Benedict - crabcake is oversized, dry and all corn/potato filler. Stick with the huevos or breakfast quesadilla

    Mayan Omelette is fantastic. It's so good I can't resist getting it every time. If you like chorizo, beans and plantains this is must.

    Disappointed. Based on the pics, I thought it would be amazing. Eggs were borderline raw and drenched in oil. Potatoes were overdone, dry, and flavorless. Won't be going back.

    You ca substitute potatoes for a selection of fresh seasonal fruit (mango, strawberry, papaya, etc) for only a dollar.

    Pancho Villa skillet is good, Breakfast Quesadillas okay; but both VERY greasy from the chorizo....food almost swimming in grease.

    The food is very flavorful, if you have a group just bring cash. Splitting checks is kind of douchy, and slows down service.

    Slow service from the waitress. The omelet was ok. The potatoes were not. Wrong toast. The syrupy marmalade was some kind of gross apricot spread.
