Great food and great service. Our favorite was shrimp and grits and the sea bass. Fried ice cream was a very nice surprise.

This place is a nice little gem in downtown PV. Very good food, great value, friendly staff, nice ambience and a Mexican coffee to die for. Give it a try, it won't break the bank, and you shouldn't be disappointed.
