As always a nice meal for little money. Great place to eat, watch people, buy some take home food or pick up bakery goods for next day to go with your coffee.

I went to lunch here with my sister, its buffet style, the food was delicious. The service was fast and friendly. The tortillas were also freshly made. Will return to this establishment again.
