Looks are deceiving. What appears to be a simple small-town cafe in a converted home is in fact a very fine restaurant, offering innovative beef, pork, chicken, seafood, and vegetarian selections, many created with a Southwestern flair. The menu varies, but could include pumpkin seed-crusted local trout served with cilantro-lime sauce and wild rice pancakes; Utah lamb marinated with sage and rosemary; and Mayan tamales -- eggplant, poblano peppers, roasted tomatoes, masa, and cesara cheese steamed in a banana leaf and served with char-grilled vegetables and brandied corn custard. Pastries and ice creams, all made on the premises, are spectacular, and beer, wine, and cocktails are served.
