Picked up sandwiches here for lunch. Service at the counter is very friendly and they seem to know all the locals that come in. Ordered a carnitas lunch burrito for my son, a roast beef deli sandwich for my wife, and a couple of soft carnitas tacos for myself to go. A LOT of food for the $7 or $8... More

This is my favorite breakfast spot on the weekends, the food and service is excellent, a very casual spot, there are a few tables inside, but the best is to sit outside and enjoy the weather, one my favorites is the Surfin Breakfast, lots of food at a great price

This place was always packed every time I drove by so I had to stop. I didn't have time to stay and eat, but the chorizo burrito and old fashioned doughnut I had were good. Coffee was also good. I wish I had more time to stay and relax as I ate as this place is busy but relaxed. I... More

Yes, the food was ok but that's it. I wouldn't call it a café, I wouldn't even a donut shop. It was just a glorify Dunkin' Donuts that served food and at that point we were so hungry we decided to eat there. It was on the expensive side for a no service eatery. Don't waste your time, just go... More
