“Eggs with Monkeys on the side”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 11, 2012

My favorite breakfast place, the monkeys and birds visit frequently and the food is simple but excellent. And you can see the ocean shining across the way while sipping morning coffee.

“This is my favorite secret in Montezuma!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 11, 2012 via mobile

This place is tops in my book! Great food, friendly service, just off the beach, wildlife spectacular, and great conversation and a good place to meet people. The owner and his son were a joy to get to know and the help is just fun to be around. These people really put their guests first! I LOVE the Vegetarian Omelet and they have Outstanding Coffee! These guys are 5 Stars all the way! Thanks Amigos!

“Pancakes!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 28, 2012

The chocolate pancakes were definitely the best pancakes in Montezuma. Get one of their massive shakes, and go early to try the banana bread before they run out!

“Greatest Breakfast”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 10, 2012

The omelet and pancakes were wonderful. One of the few restaurants regularly open before and after the quake. The owner, Luis, and waiter, Roberto engaged in conversation with us and were very accomodating. The food was delicious and fresh. The restaurant sits just a small walk up from the beach. We felt welcomed and they remembered us after our first visit and would greet us in town. Great place!

“Nice location overlooking Montezuma beach with entertaining monkeys”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 5, 2012

This restaurant is open for breakfast and dinner. The restaurant staff don't speak English. There is a menu, but not everything is available. Our best memory is that for half of the items we tried to order from the menu, the reply was " not possible", the only English they seemed to know, so it reminded us of a "Saturday Night Live" episode. Food was pretty good and reasonably priced. Cash only.
