No, his name is not David. Call him Jesús or Chuy.

For the past 20 years, David’s Café has been open for breakfast and lunch, but the original owner, David, is long gone. Now the owners are chef Cecilia Gómez and her business partner Jesús Fonseca, a.k.a. “David.” Chuy (pronounced CHU-ee) is the nickname for Jesús.

Come to David’s Café for a mixture of American and Mexican breakfasts and lunches from pancakes and eggs to enchiladas suizas and hamburgers.
