The Good: great restaurant and cafe for a good cause, the food is delicious and service is fast if you get there before 10am. The Bad: if the parking lot in the back is full then street parking can be a little difficult to find. They are closed on Sundays :( I recommend: If you "check in" with yelp you get either get a free, Angela's potion (spinach and mint drink) or cucumber juice, get Angela's potion its really refreshing and you can't taste the spinach. The chilaquiles are amazing. I've also had he M'jas with papas (nopales) but think the chilaquiles are better.

Came here for breakfast on a Friday. I was able to find street parking about a block away, 2hour metered. I was very happy with my meal and service over all. The fresh juice, Angela's potion, looked gross but it was delicious and very refreshing. The chilaquiles with eggs and potatoes were great and very filling. The portions were huge. Service was quick and friendly. Will return to try other items on the menu.

I have never in my life had such a perfectly poached egg. And while that may not sound like the biggest dealmaker to some, when you are the kind of person who would trade literally any other food item for a poached egg, it is no small matter. The chilaquiles here are awesome, which will come as no surprise to anyone who has ever bought Homeboy chips at the grocery/farmers' market. Great salsa, the perfect amount of cheese, those bomb chips, and that egg. Oh dear god, that egg. There just aren't enough words... Take the Gold Line to the Chinatown station to avoid parking in the relatively small lot. And don't hesitate to ask for a tour of the garden/greenhouse! One last note—I saw a review left by someone who couldn't handle the "too many tattoos." It's possible that I have never felt sorrier for anyone on earth. There is no cosmetic crime great enough to keep me from that egg.

Came here for lunch to chat with a friend I barely see. Looking for parking took a while. My friend came early so the wait wasn't long when I showed up. I ordered their jamaica (hibiscus) tacos and their spinach-mint limonade juice (aka green potion), which were surprisingly yummy. Their salsa didn't disappoint either. The atmosphere is clean and big, lots of sunlight. Staff is great and the food is made with fresh ingredients. What I love most about this place is they help at-risk and formerly gang involved females by offering then training within the food and service industry. I look forward to coming back here to try their breakfast food.

Fabulous project started by Fr. Greg Boyle. Business with a purpose, how refreshing. The food and people are awesome, a lot of love in the atmosphere. Unique decor and compelling fresh menu. Right next to Chinatown and the Gold Line.

Good ambiance, prices are not too high but could be a bit more competitive. Lots of eye catchy art. Did not have to wait long to be seated and service was pretty decent. Not a stellar spot but pretty good place.
