Excellent food, great prices, wide variety, simple and go to this loncheria at least three times every visit. The last loncheria at the market by Playa Norte, you often have to grab a seat/table when one becomes available. The menu is in Spanish on the left and English on the right. There is NOT a bad item on the menu.... More

I stopped by for a snack one afternoon and had guacamole and agua de melon. The gauc was very good served with good chips. The agua de melon was a nice size serving and so refreshing on a hot afternoon. I love that it's a family run place and they enjoy working together with various friends stopping by to chat.

We ate breakfast one morning with the locals at Tacos Tumbras (fourth market stall) while the tourists ate at the one on the end. We enjoyed the special sandwich of the day, café con leche, and a generous portion of chilaquiles with verde sauce. Everything was delicious, and for less than $10 USD total, we had no complaints. Their blended... More

You can't beat the value here for an authentic Mexican breakfast. We love all the egg dishes, especially the eggs with chorizo and the mixed omelette. The owner recognizes us now and knows we like extra habanero in the fresh-made pico.

Tacos Tumbra is the last of the loncherias that line one side of the mercado, it's wonderful and authentic. On Mondays don't miss piercing con frijol, and fried chicken any day. If you want white meat just ask. They save it fit the gringos anyway . Make sure after lunch to go get fresh juices from the lady at the... More

This is one of the four restaurants next to the market. The one by the road is always packed as it's recommended in the guidebooks. We decided to give this one a try (closest to the market), and this is definitely a great place! We ordered two local drinks (jamaica and tamarindo), a chicken and a pork dish, each came... More

Once we found this place, we ate breakfast there almost everyday. We loved the hot cakes and bacon and the egg dishes. The prices are great and the service good.

I wanted breakfast tacos on the first morning being on the island so we went to Tacos Tumbras. I had bacon and egg tacos. My other half ordered pancakes and bacon. Both meals were good for the price. He said the bacon at Tacos Tumbras was the best he had on the island. Three small tacos came with the order.... More
