We ate lunch at the cafe today. The soft chicken tacos were amazing. They had the perfect blending of flavors topped by outstanding guacamole and homemade Salas. The staff was competent and friendly. This cafe is a true gem for foodies!

The cafe stands between the Museum of Indian Arts and Culture and the Museum of International Folk Art. It is a great place to rest and have a bite between the two museums. The food is very good .
