Eclectic Mexican dining, with a Southwest twist.. In Short Canyon Cafe's mission is to creatively present food and beverages. Join the crowd at dinnertime, but avoid sitting in areas with higher ceilings to lessen the noisy echo. Enjoy a Southwestern-style brunch on Sundays (11am to 3pm). The menu includes the Canyon carne asada, a fire-grilled sirloin, jazzed up with Southwest rice, black beans and grilled peppers. The portobello mushroom and spinach quesadilla is lacquered with cheeses and tomatillo-avocado salsa.
