They have a 4-6pm happy hour with half price appetizers and drink specials. I'm from Texas and the nachos were some on the best I've had, anywhere. The margaritas were good as well.

Really enjoyed this café. My husband had breakfast, chicken fried steak with eggs, and I had the green chile cheeseburger. Both were very good. First time here, we will definitely be back!

This place strikes me as a good mix of retro diner atmosphere combined modern eats and quaff. American, Mexican and Greek dishes offer plenty of mind blowing combinations for cafe style dining.

We went for breakfast one weekday morning. Blue corn pancakes with the orange butter and cinnamon syrup were delicious. Also had the breakfast tacos-excellent. Can't remember what my boyfriend had but it was all delicious. Excellent and fast service. No complaints whatsoever.

This place is tucked into the back of a plaza, but is worth searching out. The old fashioned atmosphere is fun and the food and service was great. We sat in the bar area and were happy with the experience.

It's just a good old fashioned cafe with good food at a good price. It has an extensive menu so it's really tough to decide. Everything looks so good. It was really warm that day so we ordered salads. We walked out stuffed.
