“Open 7:30am-8:30pm daily. Fantastic restaurant with organic produce and a wide array of items to choose from. Everything here is good... even the most simple foods like their stuffed avocado. Popular here are the fruit boat(half papaya or other melon filled with other fruits, sunflower seeds, and frozen yogurt or cottage cheese), breakfast favorites served all day (eggs/omelettes/waffles/pancakes 7:30am-8:30pm daily), large meals (chicken or fish), milk & fruit beverages, juices (beet, orange, apple, carrot, and others made from a centrifugal juicer like Whole foods not Cold-Pressed), soups (vegetable, Raul's bean soup, and consome de pollo are all wonderful).”

Every sunday families of both sides use this place to get reunited and see each other for s little while before everyone gets back to their reality”
