This place is also an Internet cafe and has a varied menu for all meals. I had a very nice quesadilla dish for lunch.

We came here one day for breakfast and really enjoyed our meal and drinks. There is Huge breakfast selection and we reccomend it. They offer paid WiFi only, which we did not use, but the sign said “it really does work” ;) Prices also reasonable.
