  • “Was very pleasantly surprised as I've walked by this place many times and it's not busy. DELICIOUS! Freshly made marshmallows! I could tell my order was given a lot of attention. If you want a nice breakfast/brunch with a better variety of flavors, Esencia is great. Thanks. ”

  • “I have eaten at the restaurant before and really liked it. Their breakfast really disappointed me. The chorizo hash had almost no meat, they forgot the avocado and my fianc´┐Ż did not like her chilaquiles. I might go to the restaurant to dine in but I will never again get delivery.”
