My fault for ordering homemade chai latte in Nicaragua.Tasted like hot water with cinnamon. Also got their homemade NY cheesecake which is also not tasty enough to justify the calorie intake.Chai latte and cheesecake will set you back C$240.On the plus side-staff is cheerful and friendly.

Good food and drinks. The staff was great, the service was excellent. We stayed at the hotel so we ate here several times.This is a great place to eat any time of day -- breakfast, lunch or dinner. Prices are tourists prices.
