Great Mexican-inspired lunch

We had a really yummy lunch here on a busy Saturday afternoon. From what I can tell every afternoon is a busy one here. We had to wait 25 minutes but it was worth it. It's not authentic Mexican, of course, but for the east coast it was really yummy. Highly recommended.

We had a delicious breakfast this morning - perhaps the best food we've had on our trip. Everything was perfect. We started with a cinni - the largest and most delicious cinnamon bun - enough for four people to share. Then our party had huevos rancheros, blueberry pancakes and … yes, fish tacos (they serve from their whole lunch menu... More

Went here with a group of 4 on our last day in Maine. Food was pretty good but the best part was the huevos rancheros and their sticky buns. Def a good stop for breakfast or brunch!

Huge menu, great service, fantastic food... If seating is available upstairs on the deck, and the weather is nice, it's an added bonus!

My husband and I ate here as we left Rockport for home. I had read the reviews and knew it was a must try. The reviews are correct- the hominess, great friendly service and the food are outstanding. I had the homemade hash and egg with their homemade oatmeal bread and my husband had the rancheros breakfast which he said... More

The food at this little neighborhood cafe is amazing! I had the fish tacos and my boyfriend ordered the turkey reuben. There was so much food on eat serving we could have shared. The fish tacos were made of fresh, grilled haddock. I have never had a fish taco this good! This will be the first place I stop when... More

Delicious variety of items for breakfast and lunch. We stopped for a late lunch on the way to the lighthouse and only knew about it because some people we met in Camden recommended. I had fish tacos that were perfectly prepared and yummy served with a side of black beans. My husband had a Vietnamese pork sandwich that I tasted... More

Stopped in for brunch. Thursday at 11AM and the place was packed. Sat outside upstairs with a nice view. We both had omelets. Just delicious and packed with ingredients. I have a side of sausage which turned out the be house-ground and a hand shaped patty. Spicy and juicy and satisfying. Server was delightful and told us some interesting stories... More

Due to dairy allergy requested their Sinni french toast to be made with almond milk, if possible. The chef was able to make this change. Outcome: Yummy!!!! Thank you! Friendly, helpful staff.

The downstairs was busy and noisy, but fun atmosphere. We ended up eating upstairs which was smaller and much quieter. Service was great and the meal choices even better. I got a delicious vegetable frittata and my friend got the special: cinnamon bun French toast! We highly recommend this restaurant. The lunch menu looked just as extensive as the breakfast... More
