The food here is very good. It is a great option for an inexpensive quality breakfast. Their sweet plantains are to die for. We did breakfast and dinner here, and were not disappointed

You might initially be hesitant to enter as it is in a strip mall and the ambiance is very casual. However, the food was really delicious, some of the best Mofongo we had while we were here. Also had some quite tasty Mojitos. The prices...More
