Quick Review: Cozy and contemporary! The aroma of organic coffee and freshly baked quiche is a strong draw for native Meridanos, visiting tourists and expatriates alike. Owners Maola Baquerano and Sebastian Masson live on the premises with their two children. As chef, Maola has created a rotating menu of daily surprises based upon the availability of fresh organic ingredients. For breakfast, try one of their omelettes filled with your choice of onions, cherry tomatoes, and feta or Parmesan cheese, served with a mixed green salad and a slice of toast. A daily quiche is available for breakfast, lunch or a late afternoon snack. There are also homemade pasta dishes, like vegetarian lasagna, or a hot or cold serving of ratatouille. From the contemporary art on the walls to the reasonable prices, Maola and Sebastian have established a visually dynamic and inviting space for their community, and the community is responding!
