Cenote is one of our go-tos for any great, casual meal on the East Side. Get yourself a (really big) coffee cup, grab a seat outside, and prepare to stay a while. Free wifi means you can treat yourself to an excellent brunch even if you’re doing work on a weekend.

Trancas is easily churning out some of the best tacos in town from its Cesar Chavez truck. Get there before it's no longer under the radar.
