I joined a friend for lunch today. The aesthetic of the place is very nice and fresh and clean - very trendy. We each got a salad and they were delicious and very large and filling. I ate the entire salad but was so full at the end! We sat on the enclosed patio, which was beautiful, except they allow smoking there as it is "outside"; however, with all of the windows closed, you feel inside. The smoke was gross and even after the opened the windows for us, we were eating more smoke than food. Fine if you are a smoker, but if not, skip this place or skip the patio. Prado Norte is a cool street to visit if you are a tourist. There is a market nearby (Mercado Prado Norte) which is small but gives you a good idea of how markets function here and also it is close to a famous bakery called Tulipan. It was not cheap but not too expensive. A nice date place or lunch with friends. Best in daytime since the place is so light and airy.

Very good food and many options for breakfast. Cozy and nice atmosphere. A bit pricey but its worth the visit.

Good experience although it was a little expensive for the food given. The service was fine and the ambiance ok.

I have given this place several tries, because the concept is nice, decoration is lovely and the food they offer sounds perfect. But in reality the place is super expensive, service is super slow (I waited 40 minutes for a rice with veggies), and the taste of the food is not outstanding. There are many other places worth trying, spend wisely ;)

All day breakfast, all day lunch. Food is always good (mostly organic), fresh and made to order. Staff are friendly and prices are reasonable. Fantastic juice bar. Seems that the chef is always there, which makes a huge difference. Open 8am-6pm and valet parking.
