Charming Chef/Owner Rima has struck it right in creating and filling a foodie niche that has never really existed in Todos Santos....turning what used to be for many years a little mom and pop grocery store on a busy corner, into a funky chic bistro meets tea room. She takes full advantage of all the freshest ingredients available from nearby growers along with local artisan-made specialties, preparing most dishes to order. The atmosphere is fun and inviting, with ever-changing walls showcasing pieces by local artists. There are also a few tables outside on the sidewalk.
This is a great place for breakfast and lunch, with some uniquely tasty pairings such as cardamon pancakes or little falafels with tahini and slaw. There's also delicious good old comfort food like a grilled cheese and roasted tomato sandwich, or egg salad, or a turkey burger. I highly recommend the turkey meatballs, which I combined with authentic couscous and a gorgeous salad. You can order some items separately for only 35 pesos each, or do a combo plate of 3 items for 85 pesos, 4 items for 100. There's a different soup and vegetable every day, and a lentil salad, as well as a salad Nicoise.
Besides the daily blended juices, there is a lovely selection of really interesting teas....either hot or cold. She even sells little boxes of the elegant flower blossom teas...buds that open up in water, which I have only seen in China before.
This is the perfect little place to pop in any time, Tuesday- Saturday, 9:30am-3:30pm, to see what magic Rima might have up her sleeve that day. I look forward to going back very often.

This place is absolutely fabulous! Rima (Chef, owner) has done it- created a home-y, magical place, just what Todos Santos needed. The food is amazing, we have taken all visitors there and LOVE the turkey burgers. There is always good smells coming from the stove and its a beautiful setting- silver walls, funky artwork and always great people to talk to. Truly MAGICO!
