Found the little Tortilla Cafe on a visit to Eastern Market. So glad I did! Really great tortillas, tacos and sandwiches, wonderful flavours and amazingly affordable prices. Hope I get to go back sometime.

Looked kind of "divey" on the outside. Clean and courteous inside. Food was well priced, portioned, and very good. If your in the area a good spot for lunch or take out.

Tortilla Cafe is across from The Eastern Market. It's a small, hole in the wall, type of restaurant. You order at the counter, get a number, and they bring your food. There is limited seating, but if you can get a table on the patio...it's...More
