A cozy breakfast spot in NoDa serving Spanish-inspired dishes.  Be sure to try their homemade hot sauce.  It makes everything better.

The Digs:

Cool spot for breakfast in the NoDa area of Charlotte. I got there right as they opened on Saturday, and it was fine. I arrived around 10:00 a.m. on Sunday and it was an hour’s wait. They seem to have a tiny kitchen and make each order as it comes in. So, just be prepared that there might be a wait.

It is an order-at-the-counter and seat-yourself type of restaurant however they do have some baked goods like muffins, bagels, and cookies.

The Grub:

Some of their foods have a bit of a Spanish influence.

I had the Spanish omelet on Saturday, day one. The omelet was pretty good, but the best part of the dish was the homemade hot sauce. It was delicious with just the right amount of tang and spice.

I also tried the (can’t remember name) potato and cabbage ball. It was also good, especially with the hot sauce. I snagged a cup of coffee but wasn’t impressed with the flavor.

On Sunday, day two, I got a biscuit with sausage gravy.  The gravy was very thick and gray with large chunks of sausage. It was pretty tasty…..but much better with hot sauce. LOL.  The biscuit did not taste very fresh.

I also tried some bacon but it was eh. I was expecting a place like this to have phenomenal bacon so that was a bit of a disappointment
