“Wonderful food at a reasonable in a home atmosphere”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 July 2013

The food is delicious and reasonably prices. Kathleen Foreman, the owner, is usually visiting with guests and her staff is wonderful. The restaurant is in an old home in Mesilla very close to the Plaza.

“Beautiful Rest. a must stop!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 July 2013

This place is so beautiful and charming you must stop here when in Mesilla. It is just north of the Plaza and can be missed easily. The gate out front is historic and so is the adobe the restaurant is in. Great food go for breakfast on weekend mornings live music and listen to the church bells ring very quaint. Also they have an antique store which sometimes is open. It is also a B&B with great casitas to stay in. Do not miss this super cute place!

Very good coffee, wonderful big muffins, and serene place to stop before shopping in town. Service was also excellent. Really nice and close to town.

“A delightful oasis!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 November 2012

Charming brunch or lunch spot on a large shaded patio with old tiles, variety of trees. peaceful and relaxing, just off Old Mesella Plaza. We loved the green chile posole. We lingered over lunch, and enjoyed live music on Sunday afternoon, then after exploring Mesilla we stopped back later for wine and a snack of quesadillas. Everything was fresh and delicious. Nice selection of menu items and very reasonable prices.
