Great place to go with a group and order a umber of small plates. Some evenings there is live music from the park next door which makes sitting outside a wonderful experience.

We went here for lunch. They only had a brunch menu but plenty of choices. We had chicken torta sandwiche and tortilla soup. Both were excellent. The rockfish ceviche was also delightful. The drink menu had plenty of wonderful summer concoctions. We will be back.
