Breakfast at Kiya's Cuizine

Looking for a new breakfast or brunch spot? Check out Kiya’s Cuizine, an African American-owned breakfast and lunch bar located at 10901 University City Boulevard, Suite 106. Kiya’s has only been open for a few weeks, but word of mouth is spreading quickly.

I stopped by last week after finishing errands. The homemade broccoli and cheese soup was delicious. I dropped by the next day for Kiya’s breakfast — tasty fried eggs with cheese, home fries, beef sausage, coffee, and toast. The prices are extremely reasonable, so don’t worry about your budget.
