Try the Mexican Martini's, they are great!!! I am also regular for breakfast at this cafe. The service I receive is excellent. The juevos rancheros and the breakfast tacos are terrific.

Excellent full bar. Cheese & beef enchiladas both great. Mom loves fajitas. Haven't found anything I don't like especially Mexican martini.

Had a great time; a few cold ones, and enjoyed Cloe (Bar Keep) she was entertaining and made a few great suggestions. We had the Fajita Nachos, chips & Salsa, and we had a great time.
