The restaurant staff was exceptional, especially Laura and Angelica who were attentive, helpful, and friendly. The food was delicious and the ambiance peaceful. I highly recommend the Cafe Abrego.

well balanced menue with good options, nice wine and good service - especially so as waiter was getting hassled by a large group of French!

We had breakfast here and it was very good value. $10 buffet with fruit, freshly made omelette (or scrambled egg), bacon sausage, pancakes, yoghurt and cereals - coffee included (I like it stronger though) Much better value than Denny's across the street.

We were there for dinner and the food was not that good. We had the short ribs prixe fixe dinner, which sounded good but tasted like beef stew meat. Ewww. The portions were very small too. Not a bad deal for a hotel restaurant, and...More

Nice quiet spot for supper -relaxed atmosphere and pleasant service. Had the daily 4 course specIal and it was just what we were looking for - tasty and well presented at reasonable cost ($23). Minor point was that the vegetables with main course were cool.

The only meal we ate in the cafe was breakfast. We found it very good with a lot of variety. Staff was very attentive.

Small Menu and a bit pricey for whats offered, but the food was tasty.. We had the burger, chicken quesadilla appetizer and fish tacos. Its a very small dining area, but the staff is very visible & attentive

They obviously don't care about food. Guac and chips is guac and crumbs-not a chip big enough to scoop with. Burgers are overcooked and very dry. Blech.

Don't go here. Waste of money. Service was good but food was blah!
