A waste of my hard earned money. Complained about the small portions but no one really spoke English.
Don't even bother going there.

Pros: no pros

Cons: expensive, bad service, small portions.

The atmosphere here was a little weird. I like the decor and the nice touches like the rosemary lemon water, but when I went it was too quiet or something. I went for brunch and the eggs in my dish were really rubbery. The meat and everything else was pretty good though. I was expecting I would get more food for the price. That said, it was a cute place, maybe I just hit it on an off day.

This mexican cafe is one of my all time favorites for lunch and pasteries. The tortas, soups, quesadillas, fish tacos and salads are flavorful, vibrant, fresh and will not weigh you down for the rest of your afternoon. Many little details about this place, like rosemary-lemon scented water, never fail to impress and are something you dont expect to find at a spot this modestly priced. The entincing tres leches mini-cakes and the bigger beautifully decorated cakes are the perfect finish to any meal here.

Perfect food! Check out the tamales of the day (chicken and pork mole are particularly good), and the list of tortas (Mexican sandwiches). The quesadillas are served in sets of three, and fillings include mushrooms, spinach, and cheese, and cuitlacoche and zucchini: small, flaky and delicate, and served with a side of fresh salsa. Salads are fresh and lightly dressed, mixed with fresh herbs, wonderfully varied in texture and taste and elegantly presented in wooden bowls.
Presentation is clearly a work of love. Every item is served on brightly colored plates matching the cafe's cheerful décor. Tamales are wrapped like little presents, the cornhusks tied neatly, salsa for contrast.

Desserts, not to be missed, include crisp slices of sugary pastry, cookies, and perfect little cups of tres leches cake,(available in half a dozen flavors). Coffee is also excellent, and quite strong.
