  • Get a table by the window. It makes for great people watching.
  • Use the restroom here, trust me. It's an experience.
  • They don't take debit or credit cards. Only cash or American express. Pretty overpriced. Paid $3.25 for a cortadito vs $1.00 in Miami
  • The bathroom is an experience.
  • Cash or American Express only - no Visa or Mastercard accepted
  • Ditto on the coffee..
  • I see a lot of negative reviews but I have to say, the Ruben and the bloody were both excellent. Perfect pre-Lolla food.
  • Saw the bad reviews and was really surprised. I guess they may have seen them bc the service was great, food was great, and the patio is a great experience. So they definitely have improved.
  • DON'T DO IT.
  • The restroom is really an experience.
  • The food here is really good, I think what I loved the most were the Fries, really good recipe.
  • This place is terrible. Expensive and awful food
  • Fries are so good here, it's the seasoning, mesmerizing.
  • May be a little over priced but the food is really good and very quick. Chicken fingers and rueben were great!
  • Overpriced menu, food was ok. Only accepts cash. Would not recommend
  • Too expensive, terrible food, and on top of it all I walked up on the waitress talking shit about my table. Don't come here.
  • Iced Tea costs 3 Bucks. Ouch!
  • Avoid it like the plague. Terrible service, dirty.
  • Gross. I was not a fan of anything about this place.
  • Avoid coffee drinks. Not as good as they look an the menu. Great location. Has an 'old-school' cafe feel to it.
