Pleasant local cafe with big picture windows for people watching over brunch or lunch. Seems popular with locals and has a friendly vibe.

Tucked away under the 7 line at 54th Street and Roosevelt Avenue, this is a local gem. The Mexican/Latin American fare is authentic, simple, and delicious. The prices are quite reasonable and the environment is chic cafe.

Service was ok. Food was excellent. Atmosphere was ok. Definitely a twist on traditional Mexican food. However, nothing to be scared about as everything I tasted blended well together. I would come back to this place if in the area.

This is an exceptional neighborhood Latin/Mexican restaurant. It is in Woodside, beside the elevated tracks of the 7 train, near 52nd St station, about 20-30 minutes ride from midtown. It's not quite standard Mexican, but more a thoughtful and satisfying assimilation of Mexican influence and chefly technique. Consider coming here for their breakfasts in particular. The Puebla breakfast is one of the best brunch treats in the whole city.

For visitors, it's an experience of an older cinematic New York as well. The trains clatter by on the elevated line that runs down the center of the street, which is lined with a range of little ethnic eateries. If you want pictures of something other than the standard tourist sights, come here and do yourself a favor.

Love this little cafe!! Lovely atmosphere, live music, delicious menu, affordable pricing and great service!! The portobello mushroom salad was my best meal in NYC by far!! Only a very short walk from the Woodside Quality Inn on Queens Blvd and adjacent Subway line 7, station 52nd/Lincoln St. We dined here a few nights during our NYC holiday and every meal has been super impressive. Live music from 7pm. Great location. You won't be disappointed.
