“More of an Overpriced Latin Cafe than Intimate Dining Experience”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 August 2014

The food was very good, even if the portions were small and prices inflated. The service was attentive- too attentive- and it felt like we were being pushed into ordering even more tapas plates, and before we left, we were given the hard sell on returning for Sunday brunch (a steep $20). The desserts were tempting, but not tempting enough to endure the lack of privacy from the hovering staff. I can see potentially returning with a girlfriend for catching up over dessert and coffee, but I don't think we'll make the brunch or be returning for dinner.

“Sunday brunch”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 August 2014 via mobile

We found this little corner spot while out for coffee just down from it. My husband and I decided to try brunch and we were not disappointed! Fresh fruit display, grits with things to add, and a tray of mini slices of heaven! Oh, forgot to mention the mimosa ...it's 5 o'clock somewhere .. ! It's a small place, nicely decorated, and ALL staff makes you feel welcome ! We met the owner the night we went for coffee...his wife is what brings the Spanish twist! Well worth a stop!

“great place for sweets”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 June 2014

This is a great place for lunch and for sweets. Sandwiches are good but the desserts are great. The location is very good--on Stockton. Parking is convenient. Small but quaint.
