Well, we had the best customers ever! We loved bringing our best effort of Mexican food and pastries from Tampico, Mexico that we could make. We have received more love than we could imagine. All I can say now is please double down and support...More

Great food. Friendly people. You wouldn't know it from the little ship mall they are located it, but this is a gem of a restaurant. Everything on the menu is tasty. The coffee is great, thick and creamy.

Perry solid. Reminds me of a tearoom type place. More of a pastry place than restaurant it seems. It was a little awkward ordering. You order up front and get your own drink. Just a little differet. Overall very good food but didn't love the...More
