Excellent food, very family friendly.

We've gone here for a few years now. The food is excellent and the prices are reasonable. I've tried a bunch of different dishes, and have never been disappointed. You always see the same welcoming faces. The first time we took young kids, I was apologetic about the mess that small fingers make... read more

Also the staff that works their is just so friendly, it might even be the owner I'm not sure but either was every time I go they... More

I’ve driven by El Sol Mexican Cafe & Bakery over a couple of hundred times and never thought about going into the place. After stopping in recently, I’ll admit I’ve made a mistake and should of stopped into the place much sooner. From the outside, it doesn’t look like anything special, it looks like a whole in the wall, but... More

This place still makes their own empanadas and tortillas. Great breakfast burritos, chorizo is nice and spicy, beans are delicious. The place is small and packed on saturdays for breakfast, not open on Sunday. My favorite is their pineapple empanada. You always get chips and salsa with your breakfast, warning salsa is addicting. Just an FYI, they do close early.

Fantastic Mexican food. I love this place. Service is very friendly and the food is as good as can be found. The shrimp burrito is fantastic. The sauces and tortillas are the best. GET THERE!

Wow, we rolled up for breakfast, and were pleasantly surprised. My wife ordered a breakfast style burro with their green chile, and I asked if they had chilaquiles... WHICH THEY DID! Yeah, its not on their menu, but the chef will whip an order up for you. Their enchilada sauce perfectly complemented this dish. Their chips and salsa were tasty,... More

Everything they make is wonderful. I first ate a breakfast burrito there not long after they first opened and have since tried most of the remaining menu without disappointment. Their homemade salsa and tortillas are the best in the valley!
