The also make healthy smoothies and have a few vegetarian and vegan style tamales. All the ingredients are fresh and taste like they are of the highest quality. This cafe... More

What a neat place we stumbled upon one day while looking for a change in breakfast joints. The coffee is decent and the tamales are amazing!! They have always been very polite and even have patio seating where they allowed my dog to hang out!! Everything we have tried off the menu has been fairly good. The only thing that... More

My wife and I ate at Great Taste 2 times in our week in SA. Food was well prepared and good. The Tamales were very big and the crepes were average size but tasty. Smoothie was very good

Crepes are an excellent value with all priced less than $8. Hands on owner always has a big smile. Barista are all knowledgeable & efficient. Free wifi attracts a gaggle of mobile workers.

The dessert crepes are awesome! Fresh fruit and all. The savory crepes are pretty good. Don't miss out on the sauce they put on top. It's really good. They also have hooka. The atmosphere is so so. The whole menu is on the chalkboard wall. Cool place, don't go if you are in a rush.

I found this place while walking around, waiting on my car to be serviced across the highway. That's a great way to find places. I got a smoothie and a breakfast crepe. The smoothie was more of a milk based affair, and I was expecting an all fruit smoothie. The menu did not mislead, I just ordered in a hurry.... More

My wife found out about the opening of this place a few months ago and took me there cause we both love coffee. Ever since that first visit, we are now regulars. Their coffee is really good, unlike other places where the coffee is made by machines, the coffee here is brewed the barista way! I specially love their lattes... More
