Stopped by with family during our recent visit to Houston. Menu and decor inspired by Gabriel Garcia Marquez. Food and service was great...owner even came out and gave us a free tasting of the desserts. Wish them the best in this up and coming neighborhood.

Great Latin food in downtown Houston. My daughter tried it for the first time last week, and she couldn't wait to go back with the rest of our family. We went at noon on Sunday-- regular and breakfast menus were being served. Favorites include the...More
