      Best Business I ever worked for!

      Pros

      Working here made me feel like I was apart of a whole new family. I loved my job, my manager Sergio Herrera, and my co-workers. I looked forward to waking up at 4am just to get to work on time. The pay was even better. I was looking forward to growing with this company and was already training to make coffee using an ECM synchronika espresso machine while being a cashier. My heart literally shattered when I found out they were closing due to bankruptcy during COVID-19. I will forever miss working here. I feel like a big piece of me is missing. I will be looking for a job similar to this one.

      Cons

      There was nothing bad about this restaurant.
