It is not beautiful and it can be noisy, but La Palma has the best carne guisada and a great selection of all your Tex Mex favorites.... excellent migas and breakfast tacos. The staff is friendly, the clientele local, and the food is solid.

I tried this cute little cafe recently and liked it quite a lot. Fast friendly service, decent prices, and tasty food. I had the tamale plate which was flavorful, however the tamales could use a little more meat stuffing - but still they were good....More
