We ate here for lunch. Extensive local menu including traditional dishes, Mexican and American. Food was very fresh and large portions. The hot sauce was great. Moderate prices. Good location in town.

YUM! Excellent empanadas and fried green plantains! My kids got the burritos and said they were perfectly toasted. This is a homey and casual cafe where you can tell everything is made fresh. Great value for the quality of the food.
