Reviewed July 12, 2012

Cookies, empanadas, and fruit-filled flautas were out of this world. Pizza crust itself was magnificent but the toppings ordinary. If they upped the quality of ingredients they would have a phenomenal pizza going on! Wish we'd had enough time to try salads & sandwiches.

“Wow! The pizza was awesome”
Reviewed June 2, 2012

Fresh baked pizza on a whole grain crust. We ordered with just cheese and it was great. After the pizza we picked up some empandas and tostadas that were so big that I am still eating them here at home.

“Off the Beaten Path”
Reviewed May 28, 2012

This little place is worth searching for near Old Town - they grow their produce right there and the pizza is incredible - you can even grab a seat outside on a nice day - Old Town ambiance.

“Best pizza ever”
Reviewed February 15, 2012

The green chile pizza crust is amazing! I will never eat pizza anywhere else again. Sandwiches, empanadas, and cookies are also great. The owner is very friendly and enthusiastic. Can't wait to go back and try more things on the menu (and eat more pizza)!

“Charming and Delicious Local Eatery”
Reviewed February 12, 2012

We discovered this bakery thanks to renting a condo directly across the street, and this perk of proximity to great coffee and pastries was a major selling point! We visited the bakery daily during our stay, often more than once a day, and were never disappointed. The service was always quick and friendly, the owner (Chris) was present daily and always happy to offer suggestions, and there was never a lack of delicious aromas to wake our senses and tastebuds. There was a strong sense of community involvement and pride, and the products were better than any chain available. We recommend the cherry empanadas, lattes, green chile bread, and pizza! You likely can't go wrong with anything on the menu, but those were our favorites.
