Café
“You might drive right past this little café...but don't! It has wonderful Mexican breakfast (definitely get the spicy hot chocolate) and is in a cool space that includes a wonderful store with Mexican arts and crafts and another Mexican restaurant. It is very close to Hartford House (although you still need to drive) and opens relatively early at 8:00 am. ”
