Walk in and you feel like Norm from cheers. Great way to start the day. Coffee was solid and the food was very good, especially the breakfast burritos. I had pepper and eggs.

The atmosphere is very nice and lovely people hang out there all the time. They have a variety of breakfast items, also vegan. They also have an open mic every monday where people go and play music. Very nice place to hang out.
