Some of the best port tamales and guacamole in the area. Wonderful stop when travelling to San Diego. The bakery is incredible. Highly recommend cheese pockets and pumpkin empanadas. Well worth the calorie splurge. Friendly, attentive staff. Super casual and fun.

The food is Mexican and kinda by the book. Where this place shines, however, is in their extensive bakery with all kinds of delightful pastries. A nice tip: have lunch and then browse their pastries for a great desert.
