Cafe Cappuccino

Reviewed By porter_osborne - west Texas

Great pancakes, crepes, SW, and traditional american breakfasts. Courteous and efficient service. Coffee is always good, not great, but good. This visit I had migas, but normally get breakfast tacos. My wife ordered a walnut blueberry crepe and our son got the breakfast quesadilla *which was huge and contained eggs and bacon). if you like big pancakes get ONE or maybe two. They are great, but too much for me (6'5", 235) to eat. This location seems to have faster service than downtown, probably a function of kitchen size. Enjoy.

Mi Casita

Reviewed By Shannon E - Humble, Texas

OMG!!!! This is probably the best Tex-Mex I've ever had in Central Texas. I ordered the chicken flautas plate and it looked EXACTLY like the photo another reviewer posted. My wife ordered the quesadilla plate, my daughters ordered the steak fajita tacos and cheese enchilada plate. Everything was delicious!!!! My kids are very picky eaters but they barely left a single morsel of food on their plates. The corn chips are made fresh and were not greasy or stale like other places. The rojo and verda sauces were very good as well. I was so glad to find this place on TripAdvisor. We loved the food so much that we told other hotel guest that we met about it and the went their as well. The next morning when we ran into them they all had nothing but praise regarding the food and wait staff!! Don't waste your time going anywhere else. Very economical and very delicious.

Afternoon coffee, snack, and dessert with friends was pleasant at Brown house. Coffee was good. Appetizer plate had great mozzarella sticks, and good fried onions/pickles (although too many pickles and not enough onions). Pie was great. Service was a little slow, especially on coffee refills, but we were taking our time in ordering and eating, so the waitress may have gotten an incorrect perception of the need for drink refills.

Taqueria Altos De Jalisco

Reviewed By TexaxGranny - Texas

It's just a place to eat Tex Mex food . Nothing special. It survives because it's one of two restaurants in the whole town. They charge for takeout boxes. I have never seen that before. They also charge for extra chips and dip. It's not a bad place it's just nothing special and it's expensive for cheap food. The people are really friendly. This is also where folks in Lorena meet for meetings, which is another reason it has survived. It's good food

I’ve actually been here a few days since they opened. The coffee is great. Really great. I’ve had the cappuccino a few times. It’s creamy and not at all bitter. I got the clover coffee once too and it’s good, a mild mocha flavor with a hint of mint. It’s not overly chocolaty or gritty and not too sweet.

The baked goods are tasty. The lemon bars are tart and gooey. The monkey bread muffin is good. I wish it didn’t get refrigerated because that dried it out a bit.

I feel like they’re still figuring out the business. Twice (I’ve been here a lot!), I waited in line for almost 5 minutes. I was behind one person each time. There’s one register and the menu isn’t finalized so it can take a while.

The coffee sizes are a bit strange too. The first time I ordered my cappuccino, I was given a small and I assumed that was the only size. The next two times, they asked me if I wanted large or small and I ordered large. And the last time, I ordered a large and the guy behind the counter told me they only have one size. He pulled out a cup that was smaller than the small that was sitting on the counter. That was weird. Why do they show 2 sizes but have a super secret third one? The guy explained that they can’t make cappuccinos in the other sizes for reasons that are still a bit mysterious to me. It felt a bit like a lecture and was actually a bit embarrassing since other people were standing around.

I think that, overall, it’s worth the stop. Prices are reasonable and the coffee is good. I think they’re still figuring out the rest of it.

McAlister's Deli

Reviewed By Sadie D - Weatherford, Texas

Yum! I always look for a good bowl of soup especially when I'm sick. Mcalisters potato soup is great for that and the sandwich wasn't bad either. I like to stick to hot grilled sandwiches. They have salads, spuds, soups and sandwiches and it's pretty quick for fast food.

Visited for lunch and actually had a place to park! Apparently it is pretty tough to find a parking place at peak times. Food was great and very affordable. Lunch special is only $5.50 (calzone) Quick service and attentive wait staff. Everyone had leftovers to enjoy that evening!

Mexicano Grill & Bar Taqueria

Reviewed By Benzboy06 - Fort Myers, Florida

Hey, I'm a glutton for punishment so I saw the 3 stars (I typically do not eat at 3 stars) and decided to try this place and glad I did. Not only do you get salsa but you get cheese sauce with the chips. I have to say it was pretty great. I ordered my typical Taco Salad and because I don't want meat my server did everything she could to accommodate me. I was very impressed as this is not always the case. The Taco Salad was very good. It has jalapeños, which is atypical but a very nice addition. It also had a nice smoky taste to it which heightened the flavors. Overall I have to say I was impressed and would come back.
