Great spot with wonderful menu options. Highly recommend the southwestern egg rolls with raspberry compote. Delicious! The gift shop is a great way to take home quality souvenirs, too. Worth the trip!

Can't say enough about the shrimp tacos. Drooling again just thinking about it!! This is by far my favorite gluten free lunch. My family loves this place so much, we had to get more stray dog gear to wear home. ❤
