Had the "Rachel" I believe it was called. It was delicious, could only finish half so I brought the rest home.

This restaurant is turning out to be a little gem. I think they've gotten things sorted out with menu items and getting the food to the table. Presentation is great, and most important, flavors are great too. I like the Columbian items on the menu as well, and I think this place might just be my "go-to" restaurant for now.... More

We went for lunch on Labor Day so maybe not a good visit to judge by but service was SLOW. Our waitress was very nice and friendly but seemed a little overwhelmed (tables were mostly full and just two servers that I could see). We got our drinks promptly but then waited over 30 minutes for our shared appetizer, which... More

My family & I went here for brunch and had a great experience. My husband & I had some more adventurous and very flavorful columbian / american dishes while our kids were able to indulge in their more traditional favorites - pancakes & omlettes. The service is friendly and I love the crayons for the paper tablecloths. Definately worth a... More

New menu and now he is open every day from 9am-8pm.For breakfast lunch and dinner. He's open until 9p on Th, Fr, and Sat. Atmosphere is great too. Live music on Thursdays and I think it's great that he showcases a different local artist every month with their artwork. The food is fantastic and authentically cooked. The menu is true... More

What a pleasant and rewarding surprise to find a gem of a place for lunch. The staff was super friendly, food fresh and very tasty. The kitchen could have been a little faster, but with new management and staff ya got to cut them a break. The kids were thrilled with their chicken fingers, fresh and not frozen. I had... More

I was feeling a little shackwacky, out here in Maplewood, after the storm. So I went on a walk into the village, and looking for a place to have a coffee, I saw the sign outside Maplewood Grille, which said "tostones con chorizo". How could I pass this up? The food was DEE-LICIOUS! And the new owners, as of a... More

We had breakfast at this place twice, and both times, we were extremely satisfied. The staff were very friendly, and keen to talk to us when they discovered we were from Australia. The food was beautiful, and the price was very reasonable. The takeaway coffee offered to us when we left was a lovely gesture of appreciation for our custom.

Delicious food with a great menu selection to choose from. Lots of sub choices, many of them at a special price of $8/each, as well as different interesting salads. Very friendly staff which made lunch so much more enjoyable. We had the southwest taco salad which was very tasty & had a beautiful presentation. A hint of spiciness really added... More

I was pleasantly surprised upon eating lunch here. It's a small place and does not stay open for dinner, but the lunch menu is of excellent quality. When they run out of things, that's it for the day - everything is very fresh and well prepared.
