This is a great place with a lot of character in the way of décor and innovated menu. This time I had a stuffed Poblano.. with cheese, fruit & nuts....A dish typically served for Independence Day. It was fabulous. Our friends had enchiladas - large serving. Husband had stuffed chicken dish. Everything served was wonderful.

They won't change their pace even with a packed house. Their Café de Olla is really good and their corn bread is sweet and tasty. Not a place... More

It really is beautiful inside and great for families as there is so much to keep the children entertained including feeding the fish and turtles. We were concerned that there might not be anything on the menu to suit our little ones but we... More

This is the place you must go. The best selection of food, for your breakfast or lunch. The amount of food they serve you is incredible. Nice people serving you. The owner takes very good care of the place.

We went for breakfast on a busy Sunday morning. There was a line to get a seat but we hardly waited any time. We enjoyed the ambiance, food and great service. There were MANY, in fact most, locals here which tells you a lot. I had the special of the day, to males and my husband had the chilaquiles. Both... More
