This is a small bakery restaurant combo. food was very good and inexpensive. If you needed verification of its authenticity you got it when Hispanics came in for take-home, eat-in or bakery items.

This small restaurant is tucked away in a Spanish bakery. All of the food is authentic and delicious! The portions are huge for the low price! I would definitely come again!

This is a hole in the wall but great food. The main cook is originally from Guatemala but also lived in Mexico and she masters both styles as well as some awesome Salvadoreñan food choices. This is great food and as authentic as it comes. You will feel like you've left the USA for the time you're there. Trip Advisor for some reason only show it open an hour a day. They are open all day.

This is a small, family owned combination of a store and restaurant/cafe. The owner greeted me as I entered and his wife was the waitress/cashier. Both of them were very pleasant and cheerful. I thought I was going to a Mexican cafe, but found it to be South American.

The meal was served on a timely basis and the food was good, though a bit different from what I expected to be Mexican. I will go back as it was a pleasant experience.
