Enjoyed the green chili pork burrito and the service was family-friendly and super attentive. Friends enjoyed the green chili cheeseburger, eggs benedict, and the veggie omelet. Cute homey decor.

Everything my husband and I have had there is excellent. If you want a dessert, remember, one slice of pie is big enough for 2 (or 3!). We usually take it home.

If there is a wait, it's worth it. Breakfast this morning was excellent, Migas w/bacon smothered with Green Chile creamy sauce. Fresh biscuits, yummy. All the waitresses were so fast and friendly!
