Diana. Oklahoma City

Came on advice of other trip advisor reviews. Not disappointed! Perfect bacon!! Large fresh eggs perfectly cooked. Hash browns not greasy or overcooked or undercooked. Coffee hot but not scolding. Wait staff couldn't have been more attentive. We'll come back

Although it sounds cliché, the owners really do treat you like family. Everytime I go I order a cup of the green chile stew and a sandwich. When I brought my 7 year old granddaughter the owners treated her as if she was their granddaughter.

We go there Sunday Mornings for breakfast. The food is great and the service wonderful. It is a very tiny restaurant so large groups can not be accommodated.

A wonderful mom & pop place! The owners are very nice. The outdoor patio is a perfect location to enjoy breakfast. I had a traditional breakfast that was great. My wife had pancakes, also excellent. Try the homemade hibiscus tea. It's out of this world!!

Stopped by here on a Saturday about an hour before closing and saw it nearly empty. Was immediately greeted and given recommendations. They were right, the chicken enchiladas were delicious! Had red and green and the sauces were authentic. More of a Mexican style than New Mex. Also they severed Agua frescas and we tried the watermelon and Jamaica. Again,... More

We stopped in for lunch at The Palacio Cafe based off of fellow Trip Advisor reviewer suggestions. While I would definitely recommend one of the two patio tables over the inside seating, it won't really matter where you sit because the food is DELICIOUS! Made from scratch by the couple who owns the establishment, this is truly a local find... More

In a big city hurry? Not your kind of place! However in a relaxing even paced meal with nice owners and great food? This is your place. Fantastic food, small personal space (no Disneyland crapp) with the owners personally taking care of customers serving up the typical SW slower life pace. Great food, with excellent staff. Big city hubris checked... More
