We came here for breakfast. I had the huevos rancheros and my wife had a breakfast burrito. Both were okay, the huevos rancheros lacked in flavor. The inside of the building was cold. Service was good. But for our first time, after reading a ton...More

Eggs Benedict on the weekend shouldn’t be missed. Never had anything here I didn’t like. Pricing is great.

This place is quite small so when weather doesn't allow the patio to be open, you may have to wait for a table. I ordered the chile relleno plate. My beans and rice were fairly bland but the rellenos were delicious. You can choose from...More

We were pleasantly surprised with this tiny local restaurant. We were there for breakfast. It was delicious and very well prepared. We will definitely be back when we are back in town.

We beat the breakfast rush by going before 10 and didn’t have to wait. Several people showed after we sat and had to wait because it’s a very small venue but worth it. I had the huevos rancheros and my husband had an omelet with...More

An intimate breakfast experience since there is only seating for a few people at a time (unless the weather permits outdoor dining, which due to the chilly mornings, it did not). The food is very good and the service is fast. It serves its purpose...More

I love a simple, no frills meal. So many try too hard to over season or over cheese Mexican dishes. I had the combo plate with green sauce and my husband had chile rellennos (sp?). Very good. My only “complaint “ is I wanted it...More
