The staff here were wonderful. We needed a quick beverage and snack before the comedy show. Not only were their suggestions perfect, they also helped pick a great breakfast place for the following morning! If you are downtown...I suggest you stop!

Max's Café has the best pistachio muffins. They are delicious and inexpensive. Only problem is you have to get there early to get one or they sell out fast. Worth the trip!

I ate breakfast here every morning while on business. Convenient location and good options over standard fast food. The breakfast burrito and paninis were great.

Just stopped for breakfasts after I have walked by on my way to work every day... I saw the breakfast burrito was made with chorizo and sounded tasty,... After a 5$ breakfast burrito that came straight from the microwave I will not return!
