Good food with a great view of all the town's action

We settled into an outdoor table situated across from the fruit stand. The fruit stand was a happening place. It was lots of fun watching people coming and going, buying their fruit for the day. For drinks, we each ordered a fresh fruit juice. I had a mango, coconut, and pineapple juice. It... read more

Great breakfast spot! Loved the fresh juice, huevos rancheros, and enchiladas de arrachera. Try the homemade habanero salsa if you like spicy!

Sadly I hadn't looked for any reviews on TripAdvisor before going her, or I would probably have avoided it. Overpriced, which I figured when I looked at the menu, but then the food was over done as well. Not very good. Service was minimal, but not horrible. Probably because we were the only people there. Then they added a charge... More

We went there for dinner, had guacamole (okay), arachera (burned) and octopus (not well done). In general the food was average. For the same price (over 600 peso with mandatory tip included) you can eat elsewhere and enjoy it more. The only advantage of this place is the location, corner of main square.

Hubby went twice for their coffee. I loved the banana Licuado. Had a good omelette and hubby had eggs and bacon. Perfect spot. Wifi. Slower service the second time as it was packed. Big portions.

We stopped in for breakfast and enjoyed the eggs Valladolid style and the chilaquiles. Both were so very good. I would definitely return!
