The short menu is definitely southwestern and inexpensive. My wife had a very large pancake and scrambled eggs (she's not into Soutwestern food and I have the burrito bowl. Both meals were very good.

We had heard great things about Emmys and decided to try two things and split them. The wood fired pizza was so fresh and good. Just the right amount of everything on it so you could still taste the crust. We also had a croissant with ham. Soooo fresh and good. Perfect place a lunch!

Amazing!!! Emmy Lou runs the adorable little cafe herself and does all the cooking. Prices are extremely reasonable. The food is phenomenal!!! I had the Azteca and my boyfriend had the tacos. The flavors were out of this world! Homemade salsa to top it off! Highly recommend this place. Makes me wish we lived here so we could enjoy it... More
