“Food good, service a bit lacking”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 May 2013

1st visit, food was very good, service too. 2nd time, food was so-so, service a bit slow. Now, this 3rd time, went b/4 the dinner rush (about 4:30pm), seated right away (hardly anybody in the place), waiter was a bit slow in getting to the table, food was a bit slow in getting to us,(it was tasty but a bit on the cold side), after the meal was eaten the waiter was no where to be seen, had to ask a "busboy" to please have the waiter bring our check, so at this point, we may not return.

“Great breakfast place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 March 2013

The hotel recomended this place for breakfast, and we tried it. Its a nice big restaurant the breakfast was just wonderful. Many choices in the menu for breakfast and its fairly reasonably priced as well. it is located in a nice area of el sugundo as well right next to a strip mall. All in all great breakfast place.

“good fresh food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 February 2013

We stopped at this place mostly because it was easy to get to. Everyone was happy with what they ordered; a couple of us just added salt. The cafe specialize in using fresh ingredients (especially veggies). The menu had dishes that would satisfy the carnivore, vegan, and everyone in between. I really wish I had tried the portabella fries, but I just didn't have the room; my teriyaki bowl was enormous.
The restaurant itself was decorated oddly. There were lots of things on the wall, but as far as I could tell, there was no theme It also seemed understaffed, as we could see our food waiting on the counter waiting to go to the table.

“OK but not great for dinner”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 January 2013

We went here for a casual dinner. The service was ok but the waitstaff seemed distracted and a little unprofessional. The selection of food was not to my preference and the quality was ok but not great. I think they could do better with some effort. I wasn't disappointed but will look elsewhere for a better casual dinner experience. I did enjoy breakfast here before, though so I'll stick to that.
