In all the hustle and bustle of introducing the salsa, the Saturday specials and dinner, and just about everything else, we have neglected our cakes and coffees. Don’t they look delicious? That’s because they are. So next time you’re in the mood for something sweet or want a cup of coffee, think of us.
Along with all the changes in the works for Cafe Luna, we thought we’d sell our salsa for only $5 a pint since they’re all such a big hit! The rub? We make only so much per batch, and one they’re gone, they’re gone until the next batch is created.
The promo? Think of a good name for the salsa rojo. We’ve got “Tenderfoot” for the salsa verde, “Burn your face off” for the habanero, so we need a rockin’ moniker for the red salsa. The prize? A free pint of your favorite salsa! To enter, go to our Facebook page and put your winning idea in the comments of this post. Or, if you have a WordPress account, go ahead and comment here. The winner will be picked next Wednesday, November 22, and notified via Facebook. Be creative and keep your suggestions real!
There’s a reason there are aphorisms such as “Time flies “. Mario and I have had a busy year, with our latest addition to our small family and everything that entails, and we actually had a mini-vacation about two weeks ago. We really needed that day off! But I digress. This year’s “Best of…” voting just slipped right past us, we’ve been so busy. Time flew, and before we knew it, we found out that our loyal customers and friends had cast their say. We are grateful that, once again, we came away with flying colors in multiple categories; best casual dining, best catering, best ethnic food, best lunch and best Mexican food. So before I let any more time fly by (I know, enough with the tempus fugitalready!), Mario and I wanted to thank you all sincerely for voting us the Best of the Best of Colfax and to let you know that we look forward to continuing to serve everyone for the upcoming year!
I made this video in response to a fairly common question. There are those of you who would appreciate a little more advance notification on our specials, and others who would like a set daily lunch special. I keep getting asked for sneak previews, and I always have to respond with, “The only one who knows is Mario.” I’ve always felt it was rather off-putting, but it is the truth! The video was taken at a moment’s notice, and it shows. Mario is very camera shy, and he wasn’t going to set aside a time to be filmed, so this a catch as catch can! Hope this explains his method.
About 3 months ago, we asked our customers and friends to cast their votes for the Best of the Best here in Colfax, and for the second year running, you’ve all showed your love for our cafe by voting us best in Casual Dining, Catering, Ethnic Food, Lunch AND Restaurant. Well, just like the picture says! LOL!
Our overall philosophy is it’s one thing to have a “business”, it’s another to have a cozy place to eat great food, chat and return to again and again. We like to think we’ve created that cozy place. We love our small community and want to give our best! I mean, isn’t Colfax a great place to live?!
So, thank you, thank you! We look forward to serving you in the coming year!
Earlier this month, I had posted that we would be putting a poll out there, trying to find out what you like. Taking into consideration which specials have been consistently popular, and expanding our breakfast menu, Mario and I came up with some ideas. It’s just a few options, but if you have a specific item in mind, note it in the comments, and if we get enough requests or responses for it, we will definitely give it serious consideration. There are no wrong answers and you can choose all or one, but be certain because there are no repeat votes allowed! Thank you for your ideas, everyone!
