My husband and I decided to try a new restaurant for breakfast and I came across this restaurant. We both ordered the Chilaquiles and they were delicious, the tortillas were crispy and the sauce had just the right amount of spice. The staff wasn't the friendliest, but they were very attentive. We will definitely return!

We had breakfast here on a Sunday. They have a limited menu, but everything we had was very good. And I had the enchiladas Rojas. I was stuffed, but couldn't quit eating them. The place is tiny, so you will probably have to wait. And they don't have a restroom. Which could be a bit of a problem. I thought... More

The food was really good. The place is just really small and you have to wait awhile depending on what time you get there. I guess it's worth the wait because people are always waiting every day. We were really lucky to get seated right away. I would recommend this place if you want good Mexican food.

Good food - French Mexican mix which may seem odd but it is actually pretty good - eclectic but good.

Last time we were at Disneyland I made my hubby come here. We waited almost an hour to be seated before we had food; and although he complained about the wait, this was the spot he wanted to go to again. Great food!!!! Long wait but also great value. Must try (local joint and yelp is not wrong - this... More

Best. chilaquiles.ever. Like, ever! I must say, I am in love with their sweet Guava French Toast! It's super delish! Topped with slices of fresh strawberries, sprinkled with powdered sugar, and drenched in a sweet sticky guava flavored concoction. This place never disappoints!

While I would agree the ambience inside is "space" , the quality of the food makes up for it! The chilaquiles is my go to breakfast choice. It's so filling, spicy and textural. Two moderate weight adults could split it as it's so filling. Also the coffee is strong and fair trade. Allergens are clearly listed on the menu. The... More

The breakfasts we had were excellent. We had the regular and mole chilaquiles, and the guava french toast. Everyone loved what they got!! And the coffee was really good too. Some people might be underwhelmed by the location/ambience, but for me it was all about the food and I was impressed. We will definitely be back since we only live... More

Stopped at Anepalco's Café on the way to San Diego. I looked up Mexican restaurants, on Yelp, near the hotel I was checking out of and saw that Anepalco's was highly rated, so we stopped there for lunch. This is a Mexican-French fusion restaurant, so if you are not adventurous or are in the mood for typical Mexican food found... More
