Delicious, different and very fresh! Also have very good coffee and will let you borrow a cup rather than create garbage with carry out!! Love all of it and they are dog friendly.

This concept store (half furnitures/deco store and half restaurant) is a very nice place! I used to go there for breakfast, and it's always so good! Healthy food (not expensive), cool atmosphere, and the owners are very charming people...for sure, one of my favorite place in Playa!!!
