Went up and alley off the main drag to a back door but inside clean and nice. We had a reservation but was not necessary as many tables open at noon. Enjoyed a nice luncheon and would recommend.

The menu selections covered a lot of different choices. One of our group's favorite was the duck burger! The rabbit tostada was yummy as well as the fish special. Great service, nice ambience and great food! The desserts were amazing!
