    Really delicious brunch. If you want a filling meal make sure to get their breakfast quesdillla. The crepes are amazing. Friendly staff and the place is very bright. Music selection is a little odd.

    Try the French Toast, but be aware of the size...it might be better to share it with somebody. ;)

    Food was great!! Some items are spicy so be careful on that before ordering. Service wasn't the best tho (but I'd say go anyway cause it was yummy)

    Green Envy was good. The lean and mean burrito was good too but I should have added some bacon to it. Fruit salad was actually a melon salad with pineapple.

    If you ask for mustard make sure and ask for a bottle. I asked and got 5 small plastic mustard packets even though I could see the mustard bottles lined up. Flipping lazy.

    We handed them 11 cards. They told us we could only split the check 2 ways. Why? Because they wanted us to use their $3.00 fee ATM. Sketch.
