Sat down for a mid morning coffee (nobody else in the restaurant ) and I waited 20 minutes before anyone even acknowledged I was there. Coffee was good, but service deplorable.

Food was great...concert awesome...service was good...moreservers would have saved wear & tear on the few who were serving...they did a great job but 4 servers for over 200 people...and up and down stairs. Overall, a great and unique place to eat and enjoy a concert.

Good menu and all 3 of us had a different choice, all good especially the ribs which were the special that night. No music the night we visited.

The cafe is built around a huge Huanacaxtle tree, whose limbs run through the restaurant. The restaurant is on 2 levels with a large band space and dance floor. Food is excellent. Large servings and delicious.
