We felt we were in Venezuela! We were unfamiliar with almost all the dishes and enjoyed all of them. They are small, similar to tapas. I had the best squid dish I've ever eaten anywhere in the world. The place is small, so call ahead for reservations. And, yes, like the reviews suggest, it is hard to find and the owner is a fantastic host!

This cafe was a jewel in the rough. The food was outstanding, and the staff friendly and helpful. My actual intent for this review is to make the cafe more visible so the family is successful in their endeavor.

Give it a try, you won't regret it!

Decided to have lunch here the other day, based on the reviews. They were right. The three dishes we got (an arepa, and two specials) were all excellent, flavorful, and filling. The portions are on the smaller side, but so are the prices, so you can try a few things. The salad was very fresh, all fillings were good, really I can't think of anything wrong. The owners were there serving and were friendly and very helpful explaining the dishes we weren't familiar with. I can't wait to go back again and try some other items. The location is good, once you know where it is. Their space actually faces South Golden Road in a small strip mall, look for the sandwich board sign along the street.

It was my pleasure to find this place! If you blink you will drive right by. However, you do not want to!! It was great to meet and chat with owners Louis and Caterina. The food is fresh, tasty and oh so reasonable.. Check it out and say hello.. You will go back!!
