The food was ok, but it was too slow (30 mins for a cold sandwich) and too expensive. The crazy danish lady did not even get us the check, she kust told us 30 dolars, which was more than what we consumed... Dont go

The coffee was just okay, but the sandwiches were over priced and below average. The owner is overbearing, pushy and as Ecuadorian residents we found her comment about "not wanting to speak Spanish because it was too complicated" rude. Won't go back!
