A great cup of Coffee and the best French Toast. We only eat out for breakfast once a week and this place is a must. An easy walk from the Grand Luxxe, looking out over the Marina.

This is a must if you are looking for a great local place. We had the shrimp tacos which were the best I've had, and the tempura shrimp. Beer, wine, soda, bottled water are all available at this quaint family run restaurant. I don't think you will be disappointed. It's also a fraction of the cost compared to the timeshare... More

My husband and I ate here twice on our trip. We stayed at the Grand Mayan and it's a nice 10 minute walk to here along the beach. The breakfast is very fresh and the location along the harbor is very quaint and peaceful. It's also very reasonably priced, given the limited and expensive options on the resort. All the... More

My husband and I looked on TripAdvisor for breakfast spots and this is probably the best one in Nuevo Vallarta. Absolutely delicious food. Sits right on the marina. Great music and art surrounds you. Delicious coffee. I don't think you need more than that! I wish there were more spots like it here in NV.

Right on the harbor. It is fun to watch the boats, the birds and the iguanas at the harbor while we drank our coffee. And then the chiliquelles arrived, I had mine in salsa verde, my husband had his in salsa roja. They were delicious, the coffee was good, they came back and refilled both our coffee and our water...

Best coconut shrimp anywhere but you must go on Mondays. Shrimp come in that day. Reservations are suggested. Love the owners.

We stopped in here after out dolphin encounter with two kids (3yrs, 5yrs) and had a great lunch! Every item was perfect. Fries were fresh cut and the kids quesadillas were good enough that I would eat a lot! My wife had the best cheeseburger she has had in a while and my fish tacos were extremely taste filled with...
