We ate breakfast here several times. The burritos. Acai bowls, and tea were great! It was not super fast, and the lines were long, but it was great quality. We took our food out to the rooftop bar. That made for a perfect breakfast!

Ordered two drinks and a breakfast sandwich here. Sandwich was suprisingly very good. The drinks weren't bad either. Convenient place for things you left behind but cheaper to go to the CVS a mile away.

Hotel is sophisticated, and view is gorgeous! Seated at a table inside overlooking the cliff to beach below, truly more my liking! Elegant hotel with beautiful furnishings and flowers in lobby, create soothing environment. Food was served hot and tasty! Will return!

This is a serve yourself snack bar with limited options. However, it's great for a quick cup of coffee and a bagel or a pre made sandwich or salad. There is seating inside and several large screen televisions to catch up on the news. Prices...More
