This cute bakery and cafe has been around for a while, and I’ve known the owner since I was little, but for some reason I never got around to going til lately. Boy, have I been missing out on some great barbacoa tacos. The shredded beef is slow cooked until tender, and is so soft and flavorful I can’t seem to order anything else— even at 11 am after yoga. The menu includes a selection of tacos, burritos, tamales, and sides, not to mention the three beautiful cases of pan dulce. Tacos are $2.50, and they are sizable.
The walls are colorful, music from Veracruz vibrates out of the speakers, a Latin American dictionary rests on a shelf, and a small chalkboard reads, “Amor es querer que otros sean felices y creer en ti mismo.” (Love is wanting others to be happy and believing in yourself.)
