So pleased to find this gem. Best breakfast, coffee and latte. Once we found this place we have made it our daily stop. I love the organic coffee w/cream and my hubby loves the latte. After trying a few different menu items...all good, we now usually order the "al gusta" breakfast of scrambled eggs which come with refined beans, oven... More

Went to El Nicho for breakfast this morning. My husband had Eggs Benedict and I had "the bun" which is a plain omelette with ham, spinach and goat cheese placed between toasted English muffin and an asian carrot salad. Both dishes were very good. Service was great and the atmosphere was pleasant. It's a busy place so that should say... More

We made the mistake of eating dinner here at dusk. We are from MN so we know mosquitoes but I have never been bombarded by the little buggers ever like that in a restaurant. The meal was excellent but we were constantly swatting bugs. The server was very accomodating, bringing us bug spray and putting a fan in front of... More

Excellent breakfast, several offerings and unlimited good coffee. The fresh grapefruit juice is wonderful. Good location on the town square, small but worth a wait.

Tried this spot twice and absolutely loved it both times. Had French toast the first time (as their Belgian waffle maker was broken) and it was superb! It had some seeds that added a bit of crunch and texture. That, along with whipped cream and fruit and warm maple syrup--heavenly! Today they were back in business with waffles and they... More

A small charming restaurant on the town square. Everything we ordered was delicious. Especially loved the tea and sandwiches. The waffles with fruit and whip cream are to die for. Delightful staff

el Nicho is a beautiful place to spend a leasurely brunch. It is across from the park and has a peak-a-boo view of the ocean. The room is full of lovely sites and sounds from beautifully presented food, to great music. The walls feature artwork from local artists and the service is top notch.
