You know what would taste great in this sweltering early February weather?
The chips and salsa at Veracruz Cafe in Bishop Arts are good. And the restaurant, which opened in its original space in 2003, has a bar now.
The cafe’s owners recently built a chic bar at the front of the restaurant, adding another sacred place in the neighborhood to prop one’s elbows and dip a chip. The house margaritas are very strong, frozen or on the rocks.
Veracruz Cafe has happy hour all day Monday-Wednesday, so hurry before it’s winter again.
