Consistently terrific service- even wh n packed ! I always get the blackened salmon salad which is filled with all kinds of yummies - shaved Brussels sprouts, creamy goat cheese , buttery avocado, candied pecans. Strawberries, greens and perfectly cooked ( I ordered well done) salmon. Amazing dressing. Definitely get this meal

We arrived at the Union Cafe a little bit late, but it wasn’t busy at our arrival. Bryce was our server and we were greeted immediately by Vic. Our drinks were very good and our service was excellent. Then we ordered our dinner and it was delicious. We were there almost two hours. We were treated with respect and everyone was very friendly. I would highly recommend the Union Cafe for your drinks, appetizers, and your meal. We have never been disappointed. Thanks for everything and looking forward to go there the next time in town. Vic always greets us with a friendly smile and hug and then always is there when we leave to thank us for coming and tell us to be careful until we return next time. Very nice.

We had great service and had a great view. The only reason why I could not give 5 stars was because our food was delivered somewhat warm and not hot.

Mariposa is inspired by Mexico’s rich culture and profound beauty. Imagine biting into an authentic, handmade taco with fresh ingredients, perhaps paired with a perfectly balanced margarita, surrounded by vibrant colors, artwork, and décor.

With over 10 authentic tacos to choose from, the menu also includes starters, large plates, sides, desserts and options for kids. We have unique margaritas, hand-crafted cocktails, and an impressive array of wine, tequila and mezcal.
