Me gusto la comida pero me encanto los jugos naturales. Ofrecen un variedad grande. Muy bien I liked the food here, but it was very similar to the food in the US.

Busy place for locals & tourists & surfers. Both visits offered great french toast, pancakes, eggs, bacon. Fun drinks (healthy & alcoholic). Service wanes when really busy, but very experienced servers. Other locations @ Manzanilla & Zicaleta beaches, which we didn't visit. Great menu.

Great cafe on the beach front, the Chilaquiles was a great choice for a late breakfast after an early morning surf. They have fresh breads and breakfast pastries with refil coffees and prompt service.
