I went in to buy sandwiches to take with us on a hike. There was no one else in there, yet it took more than 20 minutes (maybe 30) for them to make two sandwiches. They were working on making pizzas that must have been phone orders. The wait was way too long, and they only worked on my order... More

Not gonna lie, this place is a little odd. It's a deli. It's a pizza place. it's a Mexican place. It's a wine shop. It's a candy store. There are three distinct menus going on here - the deli, the pizza and the Mexican food. We ordered sandwiches and they were pretty good. Nothing spectacular but not bad. The store... More

We sat in this little store and had delicious burritos, prepared on the spot as we waited. The owner was friendly and we liked that it was simple and felt very local.

Had a sandwich which was tasty and generous of filings. But at 7.50 dollars plus tax that's significantly more than London. I was shocked.

And pizza, burritos, market, pool table, ice cream, who knows what else. It's a good stop to stock up on provisions. I had a large sandwich, which was average, for $8. It was on wheat and I probably should have asked for a different bread.

Went with my Girl Scout troop on a 4-day outing. We've seen better atmosphere, nice employees, friendly locals. Sandwiches were tasty, but had a complaint about the tuna. (Lesson:. If you want a tuna sandwich, make it at home.) Wish we had tried the burritos that get such good reviews.

We chose to have our lunch elsewhere, but the ice cream here was delicious! It was nice to have the indoor benches and tables to eat at.

This restaurant offers deli choices as well as a Mexican menu. I had their three tacos dish with al pastor and asked for it to be spicy. I realize there isn't a lot that can be done on a taco but I thought it was very flavorful, lots of meat and condiments. I've tested many taquerias and this was one... More

Ordered burritos, and were perhaps the best I have eaten. Plentiful, delicious and reasonable. There was a porch to eat outside, and the place was a market, but the food made up for lack of atmosphere

Growing up in Los Angeles--you know what really good authentic Mexican food is suppose to look and taste like. This is one of those places--it could easily fit in LA. Exhausted from eating too much cheese in Petaluma, we came here twice in 1 day. Why? Because the chicken burrito is awesome. Large flavorful pieces with just the right amount... More
