Decided to eat out. Opened earlier than other restaurants and ended up being a fantastic experience and food. If you are looking for eats around town earlier than 0800, this is the place to go.

We came here for breakfast before touring the historic centre of Campeche. We had one of the traditional local breakfasts, which was delicious and affordable. Highly recommended!
