Something about going back to places that you know that your going to get great food and even better service. Whether you go in mid-August or in the bitter cold you can be guaranteed that your going to leave full and satisfied.

Excellent brunch stop. Great chilaquiles, sandwiches and omelettes. Plenty of stuff out of the ordinary, including authentic Mexican offerings. Fresh squeezed OJ.

Nice salads and sandwiches for lunch. Great fries. Nice and clean. Service was good and the menu was typical lunch joint. Haven't had dinner here but I've heard that the Mexican dishes at night are fine. Al fresco dining available.

I had a lox, cream cheese, onion, capers and tomato omelette. So so good. So rare to find lox, and in a Mexican restaurant. Outstanding
