Mini Cafe is a rarity unto its own: a true Mexican-American diner, the kind that straddles that hyphen comfortably, that can master the breakfast burrito as easily as a short stack, where customers rave as much about the burgers (juicy, grilled just a little bit longer à la carne asada) as the enchiladas (gooey and fat and fabulous). Chicken-fried steak and horchata? Sí, please. And the chilaquiles are just perfect.
