Can’t just call it food...too good. We had Sunday Brunch—chile relleno stuffed with egg and bacon, shrimp enchiladas in a fabulous green chili, huevos rancheros and a luscious key lime pie popsicle for dessert. Totally delicious. If you like shrimp, you MUST try these enchiladas.

We stopped in here on a Saturday in January for lunch. The place is very tiny, but we were lucky to get a table for two in the front window. Service was very slow, but then we realized there was only one server, so we...More
