“Charming place -”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 17, 2013

Desperately hunting early morning coffee, this appeared like a mirage! And the coffee was excellent! The breakfast was adequate if not too memorable, but the charming atmosphere and friendly people more than made up for any average-ness of the food. Indoor seating but with enough big doors open to feel like you're outside. Bright color and an eclectic collection of "antiques" and creative decor all around you. It's a part of the adjacent Coco Palms motel, which also looks intriguing.

“Diamond in the Rough”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 10, 2013

So, there my husband and I were touring with the in laws and a three year old and out of no where Las Anclas appears around the corner. Starved and whinny we stopped. We ordered the $60 Seafood platter that feed 6 (but really we could have shared with the town) and were blown away at the quality and speediness of the dishes. My mother-in-law is a NY caterer and actually wrote down the recipe for one of the shrimp sauces Las Anclas is known for.

The decorations are awesome (amazing what you can do with a sewing machine), the bathrooms were very clean, and our waitress was wonderful.

Highly recommend!
