We’ve been so busy here at our cafe! With the article in the Foothills magazine – pg 26! and warmer weather, our waiting times for service had sneaked up to an hour. Gasp! When informed of this, most of you decided to wait it out – thank you! thank you! – but we knew this couldn’t continue. Our food is great, but we understand that our customers have busy lives and can’t consistently spend a leisurely hour waiting for their lunch or dinner.
As it happens sometimes, when need reaches a certain point, help comes along from the most unexpected source. In this case, Mario’s brother, Benjamin Cerecedo. He is also an accomplished cook and has worked in many Santa Cruz restaurants and most recently
opened a new restaurant on the Santa Cruz wharf, Firefish. The need to be closer to family and see his nieces grow up was the motivation for him to make the move to our small town, and he couldn’t have come at a better time. He loves Colfax and he and Mario have been hatching up plans for new specials, new menu items and expanded hours. There will be a lot more for you lunatics to love and there will be more reasons for those who haven’t tried our awesome food to get on in here!
I was munching on my chicken fajita salad during a lull after the lunch rush, when I thought of a question a customer asked me: What’s your favorite dish here? I had to think about it since pretty much everything my talented husband cooks is spot on. But it came to me while I was eating; the chicken fajita salad, of course! But when I’m in a burger mood, nothing beats the Blue Moon. Salad or fries? Depends on my mood.
So I thought I would ask you all, what’s your Cafe Luna favorite?
And while you’re thinking of that, don’t forget to vote for your Best of the Best 2016!
You all have a great day and hope to see you soon!
