what a quaint name, huh. it's a lunch-only diner just opened by Miriam Alonzo-Theissen (no relation to Tiffany Amber-Thiessen), a native of Guatemala who's worked at restaurants in New York, California, Seattle (which is like its own state, man). This is a labor of love: Miriam makes her own soups (lentil, broccoli-cheese, potato, German cabbage), desserts (apple pie, lemon meringue, carrot-pineapple cake), and her own bread. Monday is lasagna day. She does box lunches, too, for $5.50.
