We love the drive to Sonoita and having a destination for lunch makes it even more pleasant. It was the first time we've made it to the cafe and my husband said the burgers (his had the hatch chilis) were to die for. I'm sure we'll be back!!!

Everyone throughly enjoyed their lunches. Good choices and an varied selection. Highly recommend a reservation unless you want to sit outside on patio. Adam is a fabulous chef and the wait staff is attentive.

Excellent food, service seemed a little slower than past visits. Good iced tea, best shrimp tacos around. Great coleslaw. They are mindful of covid-19 restrictions which is a good thing. Great place to eat.

We understand that Covid has created some restrictions and problems necessary for maintaining a clean environment, however the table settings are very stark.

Would have preferred softer, lower lighting and maybe some open windows or the AC on. It felt stuffy. I had the catfish and chips. It was good but too much food. I don’t know how feasible it would be to offer smaller portions for lighter appetites but it’s an idea. Staff are attentive and made me feel welcome.

We ate outside and the flies were a constant annoyance and really distracted from the food and atmosphere. When we arrived there was 1 table left inside and outside choices. We did go outside due to the crowdedness inside but didn’t know we’d have that trouble. We enjoyed the food but ate it quickly due to flies. The waitress was getting back into the swing of things after 2.5 mo off so she did an ok job considering that.
