This all-day breakfast spot has a decidedly low-key, local vibe and a global menu offering a mixture of Puerto Rican and American staples, including originals like Nellie’s-style omelets with plantains, peppers and assorted vegetables. The welcoming dining room fetures island-style decor that reminds the Puerto Rico-born owners of home. Weekend brunch is a favorite with neighborhood folks, complete with waffles, French toast, a made-to-order omelet station and various Cuban meats seasoned with a signature green habanero sauce. Don’t miss the avena de coconut (oatmeal topped with coconuts and cinnamon) or the homemade flan for dessert.
