We ate here three times, and everything was great. I had a Cuban Tempeh sandwich for lunch, the risotto for dinner, and the blue plate special for brunch. I particularly enjoyed the sandwich, the crispy wonton appetizer, and the jalapeno onion fries.

We also tried the Mayan Chocolate Poundcake, which was good, but the chocolate cake at French Broad Chocolate Lounge a few blocks away was better.

This place has been beyond terrific every time I've been there. I can't get over how many choices there are and how delicious all of them are! Good stuff. The wait staff is friendly and I love the cookies you can get on the way out ;)
