If your in the area go ahead and stop by. Breakfast burrito was pretty good. I really like messy food but I don't know how to explain that it was not the perfect kind of messy. Tortilla was great. Important to people who like mexican food. Prices reasonable. Less atmosphere than I was hoping for. However, this is a good turn for dining options in PP. Would go again if I'm in the area.

The food is delicious, home-style Mexican food, including a free juice or coffee with the meal. The staff are helpful and efficient.

Was a regular customer here but won't be returning after today. They no longer do the free drinks and refills deal but fail to articulate this when you order. Some of the meals do come with a free juice (the breakfast options) but despite being given a list of juices to choose from, you are only informed when you get the bill that only certain choices are free. When we raised this with an American member of staff she basically accepted that they hadn't told us that some drinks were excluded from the offer, admitted their mistake but made us pay up the extra anyway. It's only a few dollars (but adds up when in a big group) but it was just the attitude that annoyed us. It's a shame as the Khmer staff are lovely and the food is generally good. Many better options in the area these days.

Alma is a fantastic brunch and lunch spot with excellent Mexican-style food. The set menu is reliably good (the chorizo hash is delicious) and the fresh juices they have each day are well worth it. The coffee is probably the best in the area. A few minor drawbacks--there can be a wait if you go during some of the busy times, the service can be hit and miss. The waitstaff are completely lovely but can get flustered when It gets really busy. They might need to hire more servers. If you are there when they have the tres leches cake-make sure to get it!

It took me a while to find this place, but it was worth every minute. The place was packed, and now I know why.

The menu was small, and everything was priced at $4 which is very reasonable. Portion size was acceptable. I had the breakfast burrito, which could have used more chorizo hash and fewer eggs, but was otherwise fantastic. The tortilla was particularly good. I had a side of refried beans as well, which was a dollar.
