Loved the crepes! Also had coup monsuir. I just know I spelled that wrong! Both were excellent and service was top notch! The older gentleman even held our hands walking down the steps to help us out.

Loved their french toast here! One of the best we've ever had. Light and delicious. Very good price and great quality breakfast. Loved the ambiance and within walking distance to playa norte.

We met a lady while walking through town our first morning here. She advised us to go for the french toast. We did and it was wonderful. Two large pieces of french toast and a large portion of ripe fresh fruit and crisp bacon were included.

We ate there last night. Good location, service was top notch and the food was very tasty. I had the rib eye steak and it was cooked to perfection, baked potato with butter/sour cream on the side, rice, vegetables and bread. Good size portions, not too small or too large. Price was reasonable and in line with surrounding restaurants. The... More

Our group of six had breakfast at this little place in El Centro. I had the speciality (French Toast) along with banana crepes. The French toast was great, but the crepes were just okay and had a lot of bananas in them.

We have been enjoying eating at Victor's restaurant for over 20 years. Last night he opened for dinner for the season. He did not disappoint. Fabulous meal! Expanded menu. The chicken cordon bleu was so tender and flavourful. Will be my new favourite. Gracias to Gurillmo for outstanding service. And to top off the meal, Victor's famous home made flan!... More

What great menu choices! The hotcakes were very good with a serving of fruit on the side. The Croque Monsieur and Croque Madame were delicious hits with my family. We had breakfast here twice. The portions are very large for breakfast. I think my husband and I could share an order and have plenty. Service is very good. We will... More

If you're staying "in town" on Isla then there's no better place for breakfast within walking distance. Had several during our stay and enjoyed each! But most of all, really appreciated the personal, sincerely caring service of the owner and staff. Will definitely return and recommend that you do!

We have been coming here for years, at least 7 visits, and won't stop. This is one of the best breakfast joints on the island. Come to try there fare and you will know what I mean. Baked goods or fresh fruits, it's all good!

My wife was in a mood for crepes, so we took a table out in front of this cheerful cafe so we could catch what breeze there was. We started with coffee and tea, and my wife ordered the fresh fruit crepes with maple cream (75 pesos) while I selected the Croque Monsieur (80 pesos), which is essentially a fancy... More
