“Frida Kahlo would love this cozy Mexican deli”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 17, 2011

Three blocks from Union Square is this cozy Mexican cafe for those who do not have the time or money to visit Mexico. The menu follows the seasons of fresh ingredients. There are changing offerings such as tilapia sandwiches or cebiche. I love tres leches cake and this is where I go in San Francisco when my sweet tooth needs attention. Besides the delicious food and sweet, motherly service, I like the beautiful tropical colors, the exquisite photos of Guanajuato courtyards and other Mexican beauty spots, the cactus, plants and Mexican artesenia. I remember when this was a hopeless empty storefront so I appreciate the Mexican know-how of the owner who has enhanced the neighborhood with her vision, talent and cooking wizardry.
