Diner Reviews
  • "Blue Corn Cafe is a wonderful setting for a meal. The ambience is great & the meals are prepared with skill and an attention to detail. Should you or your guests be gluten free, this is a great place to dine."

  • "There were delicious and creative vegan dishes on the menu and they were clearly marked, without having to ask the server. I had the green enchiladas with spinach, served with saffron rice and black beans. so delicious"

  • "A long time favorite, but the food on the last visit was disappointing. The chicken mole poblano, which we had a month before, was much too sweet and not up to the usual standard. The server offered a replacement entree, which we appreciated. For appetizers, try the plantain sampler! Very good, as usual."

  • "Blue Corn Cafe is a wonderful, in fact the # 1 option for those who are gluten free. The corn chips & salsa was a nice beginning. The vegan menu is agreeable and appetizing. The special, when we dined was a fish dinner with spinach. It was served with rice & avocado-great taste and finely portioned. Our server was attentive and knowledgable. Having made reservations thru OpenTable, our table was ready (set) when we arrived. A pleasant & nice surprise. An outstanding meal & place to enjoy it."
