Come here if your weekday breakfast plans include a large group and maybe some strollers. Many of the dishes here have a Latin twist, and almost everything is made in-house, including the pastries in the case up front and the brioche for the French toasts. The menu also has plenty of gluten-free and vegan options. It’s BYOB, so plan ahead if you’re with screaming children and need something to take the edge off.
