    I enjoyed the omelet/egg station most of all. The guy working the omelet/egg station was friendly and hard-working. I would have liked to see labels on brunch buffet items. I had no idea what some items were, which left me less inclined to try them. The service was slightly below average. In my opinion, the buffet brunch was not worth the price paid. My Cafe con Leche was not included. However, the OJ and Sparkling Passion Fruit Water my friends ordered was? Both items were not listed on the receipt. Would have been helpful to know what was included and what wasn't.

    We had read a lot about this place and were excited to try it. There were some good things on the buffet, like the oatmeal, but overall didn’t find it outstanding. Next time I’d order from the menu and skip the buffet.

    The avena de coco is phenomenal the rest of The food was just ok. The service was terrible. Took 35 minutes to get our check, and it wasn’t even our original server. My dad asked for a different mug for his coffee, he wanted black coffee the second time (he originally had cafe con leche), but everyone just turned away and said no. I’m assuming it was because he had to pay ( which we were totally ok with), but they flat out said no and had thee worst attitude in life. There should be more urgency in checking people out so the line isn’t out of the door for a table. This place has soooo much potential, but definitely need to do some staff training.
