Best chilaquiles I've ever had. Fantastic sauce and presentation. The entire breakfast and lunch menu looked great but I don't know if I could order anything else these were so good. Small casual setting in a non distinct strip mall. Good coffee too.

Had been to this very cute restaurant for brunch and now wanted to try it for dinner. Well, we were not disappointed. Live the drink menu. It is fun. Cook cocktail. Had the ceviche and the octopus which had a very cool presentation and absolutely delicious. Octopus was cooked to perfection. And had the Holy Mole braised beef in mole... More

Family loves this place. Coffee is great and food is delicious. The Main Street location is small. We had the French Toast, Anepalco's Chilaquiles, and Huevos Divorciados.

Didn't really know what to expect on our first visit, but we were pleasantly surprised at the great food. Tried both the green and red chilaquilas. Great flavor and nice presentation. A scrambled egg is added to the top. Those who like spicy will want to add some hot sauce, but I was glad they weren't too 'hot' to eat.

Delicious Mexican breakfast - very high quality. Tucked into the dumpiest strip mall with horrible parking, but always busy and always good.

I didn't know this existed until I worked nearby and a coworker took me there for lunch. I have been back with my husband we enjoy the delicious food.

Unique, creative, and the service was awesome. In particular Elesia was probably the most attentive staff member of any restaurant I have been to EVER. She was literally running around trying to keep customers happy, and she made my dining experience exceptional. What a great employee, I would go back for her service alone even if the food wasn't awesome.... More

There are a few outside tables and we were lucky enough to get one. I am a super spice whimp, dont like onions and in general wary of the extra garnish most places add. This was amazing. The food is plated beautifully. And the taste was completely melodic. Sorry the picture only shows half, i couldnt stop!
