Wow. This place is funny. Awkward entrance. Only 5 tables inside, plenty of seating outside. Coffeehouse/Bar area is tiny. Owner plays all roles... I believe she's literally the only one there, always. But she's trying.
The food is surprisingly good but it's a little pricey for what you get. The review that said this is like eating at a friend's kitchen nailed it.
We had 3 cocktails ($22). Focaccia pizza, nachos, a burger, and the chile verde. Good flavor all around.
Word of advice: because this restaurant is her operation, the owner/cook will take great offense if you send anything back. My chile verde enchurrito (that's what it's called on the menu) came out a watery mess. Although the flavor was good, the consistency and appearance of the dish was off-putting. My husband took the plate back to the bar (because service is nonexistent) and explained that everything else was good, but I could not enjoy my dish because of the wateriness. She was so incredibly offended, and what started as a rather fun, quirky dining experience fast became awkward. When we finally got our check and boxes, the owner said, "I can sell these All Day." I replied, "I'm sure you can, and the flavor was good, but I can't eat a swimming mess. It's a consistency thing." Yeah, she's still offended, I'm sure.
I don't know that I would go back. The little crazy dog barking at my one year old didn't help, and the huge old dog that ran my three year old over while we were trying to get seated, while sweet, was an unnecessary addition to a restaurant.
Best feature of the place is the Al Capone sandwich. Perfect balance of Italian meats, great bread, oil, and peppers. It's awesome.
I'm not saying don't go. Just be prepared.
