This is a warm and wonderful place to have lunch or dinner, and their hamburgers are really inexpensive and the best in town. The owner's family is very friendly, and the food is excellent. Hidden gem!

If you are a Mole lover, can't pass the eggs on tortillas covered with a smooth and flavorful Mole sauce that is made from scratch by the young man's wife in the kitchen. Excellent coffee.

I ordered two salmon salads to go - and they were fantastic. Yummy seared salmon, with goat cheese, roasted nuts and sliced pears. They even delivered to our door. Sweet family run neighborhood place.
