Wow! The food and drinks were incredible. We had fresh watermelon and lemon juice. The French toast was absolutely incredible and the huevos divorcados were another excellent dish!

Small mom & pop. A winner in my book. Had the carnitas and the flavor was fantastic. Service was great and friendly. Mango margarita was right on!

The menu tends to have a Mexican feel, but it is varied and hard to make a choice. Mixed drinks are good and they have a wide variety of juices. We visit this restaurant often as we like the variety.

We are a small, locally owned business offering high quality meals cooked with the best ingredients. A very intimate space to enjoy lunch or dinner, and now brunch on the weekends. Fresh fruit juices, mimosas & margaritas, premium coffee and great music make this a place you don't want to miss.
