Great coffee, delicious lemon cake. Loved sitting on the terrace overlooking the lagoon. They have burgers and chicken options plus bottled beer.

FIRST TIME COMING HERE. I ate a veggie burger w/fries ($8) and my sister ate a 2pc fried chicken w/fries+a slice of cake for ($6) Everything was pretty good and the wait wasn't too long. I even went back to order another side of fries because they were that good! We didn't order anything to drink but they did have coffee and other beverages. We just drink water and the waitress offered us some lemons to put into it. Everything is pretty much self served and the service here was nice too. The waitress was very polite and checked up on us often to make sure if we needed anything. I would say that it is American-styled dining sincr it was a pretty simple menu (burgers, fries, salad, chicken) Defiently will be returning! :)

Very slow service. Waited over an hour for food. Food was pretty good but not worth the confusion and snail's pace of the service. I'm adding one star for the setting. It's a great place to sit outside and have a beer.
