Great food. The food is a mix of Puerto Rican and Mexican food. The restaurant is owned by Puerto Ricans. It is very cute and quiet. There is outdoor seating. You have to check out the bathroom.

Stopped here for lunch after a hike. Sat outside - friendly service. Creative menu with unusual items including spaghetti squash, beet salad - a lot of vegetarian options too. Had the breakfast burrito wraps made with egg whites. Very good, fresh ingredients.

I so wanted to like this place. Cute location and atmosphere. Promising menu. Sadly, terrible service. Our server spent a lot of time playing with her hair (yuck), looking at her phone, chatting with colleagues, etc. Not paying attention to customers and their food orders....More
