    WOW. Crazy good. Everything is so fresh tasting. Even the tortillas are crazy good - smooth, soft, moist! Red Mole is so good! Fish taco - very fresh. Damn even the rice and beans are top-notch.

    Come for the daily specials like fish tacos & shrimp tacos. Chilaquiles make for an awesome Saturday brunch. Always authentic fare and a full bar.

    Incredible Saturday Brunch. The breakfast torta is huge with guac, bacon & fluffy, soft scrambled eggs. Get a side of chips & guacamole. To drink try the horchata iced latte (horchata + espresso).

    Pricy and a little slow, but a great meal every time. It's one of our go-to places for really yummy Mexican dishes. The vibe is super, too. Great place to meet up with friends!

    Inside a vibrant food market. Loved the pork belly taco! Probably one of the best I’ve ever had. Beautiful presentation too. I didn’t love the mushroom quesadilla I added beef adobo to. Nice folks!

    The quesadillas are ridiculously good. The shrimp and pork belly tacos are also worth the trip. It is expensive but the quality is higher than you will find at any typical taqueria in the area.

    Expensive tacos but they are so delicious! It’s one of my favorite casual spots in Oakland. I normally order their lunch combo which comes with 2 tacos and an agua fresca.

    They have a 2 taco & agua fresca special for $9 at lunch. I loved the mole verde chicken and braised pork taco. The corn tortillas are legit!

    The made-to-order corn tortillas really are notable. Probably some of the best I’ve had locally—great flavor, texture, and—that word that makes many peoples’ skin crawl—moistness. Read more

    The mango and mint salad is delicious! It's only $7, but is huge! Very worth getting.

    With robust pieces of hominy and strips of chicken, Cosecha’s piping hot posole is a fitting remedy on a cold day. After a satisfying meal, grab a lime cookie as well http://bit.ly/10egem6

    Fish tacos are baller. The Jicama Salad with Rotisserie Chicken and Mangos doesn't get enough love.

    Generous-sized corn tortilla for the quesadilla - fresh and delicious, and great if you need to be gluten-free.

    A menu filled with hits and a rotating daily special. Don't miss the watermelon salad if they have it.

    Ask the counter if you need to use the restroom, they have one for their customers. Tortillas here are some of the best I've ever had, lots of vegetarian options.

    Pastry is surprisingly good. Cornbread is Wednesday only, and they only made 2 on Wed. Started to miss it on Thursday.

    Very happy with their pozole. Fish tacos fall into very satisfying category (not mind blowing).
