Great food in a very eclectic setting. A must stop on a trip through the area. The baked goods are all made from scratch. The salad dressings are home made.

If you are on your way to El Morro or the Malpais this is a great place to stop and grab a cup of coffee or a meal. Good menu and a giant cinnamon roll that will keep two of you busy! A beautiful setting.
