Best wishes to Lisa who is opening her bed& breakfast on the west Mexican coast, leaving the new owners to carry on. If you haven??t been back to La Tienda Casa Paloma since 12/07, it is time to see how the new owners execute Lisa??s formula for authentic house specialties and the favorites that Midwesterners, like me, regard as Mexican. I find myself coming back for a late breakfast of huge pancakes, bacon and eggs, too. Here you can grab the whole bottle of Log Cabin syrup while you refill your coffee. So I need the neighborhood??s help with honest reviews of the rest of the menu. This is the only place where I will order non-diet Coca Cola. They sell Mexican coke with real sugar. If you haven??t tried it, and you are a soda devotee, I highly recommend it. It is worth the calories. I??m writing this from the corner booth on a cold Saturday, and there has been a steady stream of customers keeping the staff hopping. It is 12:30 and twelve tables are empty, make that 10. A family of 3 and a couple just walked in. The kitchen is fast so none of people at the rest of the tables are waiting for their food.
I have my own idea of what to expect in a neighborhood Mexican market or tienda. I visited Ecuador and Honduras, but that was in 1977. La Tienda Casa Paloma is another influence that set my expectations ?? accurately or not ?? of what I will find when I walk into a neighborhood market in Mexico. That said, I wish they would do something with the concrete floor. Of course, that could also be part of Lisa??s formula. The Spanish soap opera on the TV and the Spanish music lend to the ambiance, as do the family snapshots under the plastic found on the window booths. The 60s Formica and steel tables for 4 and the vintage family breakfast room tables complete the ample seating. The fresh produce market moved to the corner to make room for more tables. The little glass table with the sea shells is now gone to make more room. Driftwood and sombrero??s round out the dcor.
I used to get email from La Tienda, but I haven??t in 2 months. I hope Lisa is ok.

Tienda Casa Paloma is a combination market and restaurant, where one can shop for hard to find Mexican food and staple items, or sit down for some home made Mexican food. The squash blossom quesadillas are the best, and she grows her own squash for the blossoms, so get them while they're in season. Plenty of parking and they're easy to find in a little strip mall on Metcalf.
