Taco House Gone

The Taco House on Pine, between 11th and 12th is gone, replaced by Cafe Centraal, which advertises itself as "Mexican and Mediterranean", for what it's worth.

    Yep, Cafe Centraal was out at last weekend's Pine St. Festival. I tried their falafel, which was good. As you noted, their menu included both a number of Taco House-style items on their menu (for those mourning its loss), as well as some Mediterranean items that might appeal to fans of Effie's looking for some variety. It seems to be run by a family, which I think is a good sign.

      Ahhh...the taco house. Loved it. Grew up there when I went to Penn, class of 86

        Btw...it was orginally called Tippy's Taco House.
