Young in spirit with great food, this cafe has a couple of outdoor tables on a bridge with a great view. Even if you eat inside, you won't be disappointed. The enchiladas verdes were terrific.

Had a smoothie to start things out. Banana, pineapple and peach. Mmm! Had skirt steak fajitas which were amazing. Such tender and tasteful steak and veggies. I can't wait to come back and try the crepes! Love the youthful and energetic ambiance of this place....More

This restaurant is always popular and at times there is a wait. But well worth it. It is conveniently located where "everyone" can find it, and to boot, the food is great. Value is also good. No worries about eating lettuce here or anything else....More
