Joe Caribé Absolutely love the curry veggies with quinoa and incredible chocolate dessert special with Oreo crust.
Sweetpea's Oatmeal raisin pancakes are great!
Twin Dragon I've eaten at a lot of Chinese restaurants around the world and Twin Dragon is still one of the tops in my mind. Mu Shu pork is excellent...probably my favorite Chinese dish anywhere.

The Daily Egg Huge portions. Carnitas and tomatillo salsa in the green bfast burrito were spot on. Bloodies and bottomless mimosas!
