Don't miss an opportunity to eat at this wonderful restaurant. Absolutely great food, from ham and eggs to waffles to breakfast sandwiches, we couldn't believe how good was and at such reasonable prices. We will definitely go back again.

For the price, I have not had a better breakfast in this area. The eggs Benedict were delicious. Fresh juice of course and serve was exceptional. Try it, you'll like it!!

My wife and I came to this restaurant because of the Trip Advisor reviews. From the outside it is a nondescript spot. Inside, it is a bit stuffy, but after seeing the menu and having breakfast, we will definitely be back. Nice size menu, medium price range (for the area, but still reasonable), and delicious food and juices. I have... More

On the last day of our trip we decided we had to try this place out! Everyone that left a local review at our Airbnb said it was a must try... They were right. The food was AMAZING! Out of the 4 of us, no one was disappointed with their meal. The presentation was fantastic and the taste was even... More

Been to PoMo twice in the last 2 months and once we discovered this charming cafe, it's our preferred choice for breakfast. Just came by from a one week stay and went there everyday. Food is very good and service is fantastic.

Finally found some fresh squeezed Orange Juice that was fairly sweet. Have been surprised to find the OJ disappointingly sour but thanks to trip advisor reviews, tried this placed and finally got a glass that temporarily satisfied my craving. It was a little expensive, 30 pesos for a fairly small glass or I would have had 3, but I will... More

We enjoyed a very nice evening at elNicho. Try to find a table out in the front, as there is no AC and the fans were struggling. Very good food all around

Description
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.
