Is La Flor in Woodside still good?

Haven't been in so long, last time I was there, prices had gone up, and they didn't have any of the pastries they used to have, and things were changed around---and then I think they got trouble with DOH and had to do some repairs...so, am wondering how the quality is these days, and if they've changed their menu, or made any other changes? I used to really like their shrimp tacos, and some of their specials, and their breakfast stuff ,and their great tarts and excellent flan.

Thanks for the update

    I must be an anomaly: I ate there twice and was disappointed both times. Granted, I never had their pastries or breakfast, but I just didn't think there was anything special about their dinner entrees.

      Still very good.
      You know what is great? Their hamburger! The bread pudding is amazing. I am also a very big fan of their salads.

        I went there for the first time two weeks ago. My friend had their omelette with the jalapeno and I got their steak and eggs. It was pretty good, but I wonder how much better it is than DeMole. We also tried their hot chocolate, but I much prefer Cannelle's. I definitely plan to try out La Flor's pancakes next time.

          DeMole's eggs are superb and half the price, and demole's mexican hot choc is the best I've had, beats Cannelles, and La Flor's for my tastes.

            love la flor for all meals BUT breakfast. omelets too greasy (but not in a supposed to be greasy delicious way). everything else too sweet for my taste.

            I was there about a month ago and it was still really good. I had a butternut squash frittata -- it was an interesting (in a good way) sweet salty thing -- very tasty.
