Amazing food. Great service. Awesome location in old town. The menu is very different. I'd like to try every item. The fact that they are very busy attests to their quality.

They served all kinds of food here, mainly Puerto Rican style, and they serve a lot of it and we all had something different so that we could all try something different. We were not disappointed.

My brother and his buddies are regulars. I had a sampler plate and was stuffed. Great place to have a breakfast meeting, coffee or a full meal. Highly recommended!
