Porque no is a tiny place but it is fantastic. Atmosphere is great, the staff are friendly and I had a great experience there. The menu is pretty small but the food is done fantastically. My friend and I had half a chicken burrito and half a shrimp curry burrito each and they were absolutely delicious! Was the perfect amount... More

This is a tiny café with awesomeness food. There menu is small so you can guess they make everything on it well, and they do, AND for a great price. Service is warm and friendly. It is small and quaint and cozy!

This place was amazing. Small but the best little restaurant I have been to I a while. The atmosphere was great and so was the staff. I could not decide what to get. So many good options. Big plates of food at a good price. Get there early because people love this place and for good reasons.

We returned to this restaurant after eating here last summer. The menu is small but everything they do is done RIGHT! We had the steak and the shrimp for our entrees and eggplant for starters. The white wine was served cold and crisp. Most important of all is the staff!!! They should open a class on how to provide hospitality.... More

A tiny little hidden gem, with the most lovely hospitable staff and a great vibe. They only have beer and wine, but we loved it so much we went 2 nights in a row. They really make you feel like family. Simply incredible !!!!!

Funky, funky, funky. The food was good. The waitress was really, really sweet. It was too loud for me. The stairs are really interesting to the second floor where we sat. I'm glad I went but the place is set up for a much younger crowd.

We walked in and saw 4 bar stools in a room smaller than my bathroom back home. Then the hostess/waitress shows us the nearly vertical stairs. Up we went. Seating for 14. Yippee. There was 3 of us. The food was plentiful and very good. The waitress spoke English very well. The very eclectic atmosphere was great for conversation. She... More

Loved it!!! Great service!!! When your waitress can carry your food up a ladder without spilling then she has talent! And the food was soooo good. I had the burrito and it was great!!! You should definitely walk the extra few blocks to eat here!!!
