Time Out says

The hot chocolate at this unassuming café can run with the best of them—it’s as thick as the stuff at XOCO and as nuanced as the stuff at Vosges. It’s so good, in fact, that perhaps the café should push it as its main attraction. Because as it stands now, the tiny, eponymous cassava rolls are decent vehicles for flavor (cheddar and jalapeño; sun-dried tomato and basil) but have a gummy texture that takes some getting used to. True, they’re gluten-free, as are the empanadas, whose crust is also made from the cassava plant.
